ORANGE CREAMY DREAMY POPSICLES
Summer is around the corner so it’s time to break out the popsicle molds and make some sugar-free keto Popsicles.
These are some of the few sugar-free foods that are loved by children and adults alike. My children will just about eat anything on a stick. LOL. And they are absolutely known to run down the street after the ice cream truck waving their dollar bills.
So many of us have memories of tiny and sweet creamsicles melting onto our hands on hot summer afternoons as children. Bright orange on the outside, and filled with a creamy vanilla filling…
Commercially made creamsicles are loaded with sugar and additives. They are definitely tasty, but I thought it should be possible to make a healthy an equally delicious ketogenic version of the real thing… I think this easy recipe beautifully captures the spirit of the classic Creamsicle.
WHY MAKE HOMEMADE POPSICLES?
Homemade Popsicles are also a great budget friendly way to enjoy summer and still keep to your low-carb lifestyle. They are quick and easy to make other than popsicle molds and a few hours of waiting you simply need two ingredients.
And although our Popsicles don’t have the distinctive two layers, they still pack a lot of flavor and turn out a beautiful peachy orange color… For a bolder flavor, you could always mix in a bit of orange oil to amp up that citrus power.

SILICONE POSICLE MOLDS: A GAME CHANGER!
You’ll find freeze pop molds in a variety of materials, from BPA-free plastic and silicone to aluminum and stainless steel, with plastic being the most common.
Plastic is an affordable option, but it’s often the type with the shortest life. Plastic can become scratched, cracked, and brittle, clear molds can stain or cloud after multiple uses and washes, and many models are not dishwasher safe.
Silicone is my favorite! Often thicker than plastic and more durable. Popsicles can usually be removed from this type more easily, and these molds won’t crack. They tend to last longer than plastic too, meaning less money spent buying replacements
The actual size of the popsicles that you’ll be able to create varies. Some run small, with the molds holding about one or two ounces of liquid. These bite-sized pops are perfect for small children.
Others are oversized with a larger capacity, making them a good option for bigger kids or adults.
I personally enjoy the smaller size, I can eat two without feeling guilty. Lol! Here is a link to the silicone popsicle molds we use.
CJ’S FOLLOW-UP TASTE TEST:
Sarah did a great job with these! Our family absolutely loved them and we hope your does as well. My only tip with these is to let them set out for a bit to soften before you eat them. This is a very versatile recipe and you of course could make other flavors. They are cool and refreshing.
