The great thing about low-carb eating is that you can enjoy even treats like ice-cream without spiking your insulin levels. These delicious sugar-free berry popsicles are made with strawberries, heavy whipping cream and mascarpone cheese which high in fat and make them a perfect keto treat. If you can't eat dairy, you can use coconut milk instead.

Ingredients (makes 8 servings):
Note: This recipe makes 8 popsicles - one popsicle is about ½ cup of the mixture. You can skip the sweetener if you like or use just a few drops of stevia.
- Remove the green parts of the strawberries and place into a blender together with the mascarpone, coconut milk, Erythritol and vanilla.
- Pulse until smooth.
- Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and add popsicle sticks. Place in the freezer for 3-4 hours.
Each popsicle I made is about ½ cup. I used both large popsicle molds (½ cup) and small popsicle molds (¼ cup) and made 12 servings. Nutrition facts are calculated based on 8 large popsicle molds.
- After 3-4 hours, remove from the freezer, pop the popsicles out of the molds and place in an airtight container. Store for up to 3 months - if you can resist the temptation :-)
