In summertime, there is so much beautiful produce. It's the beginning of September and we can still enjoy succulent and colourful summer berries.

These popsicles are easy to make and you won't need an ice-cream maker. Even better, they only have a fraction of the carbs found in traditional popsicles!

Suggestions

If you don't have freeze-dried raspberries, you can use more almonds.

Adding alcohol-based vanilla extract prevents the ice-cream from getting hard as rock.

You can avoid using sweeteners, as the ice-cream will get some sweetness from the raspberries. In either case, the effect on net carbs will be insignificant. Alternatively, you can use honey - just make sure you add the extra carbs.

For a nut-free option, use 1/4 cup desiccated coconut instead of almonds or more freeze-dried raspberries. For a dairy-free version, try using coconut cream instead of cream and mascarpone cheese.

Roasted nuts taste better than raw nuts. To do that, simply place raw nuts on a baking sheet and roast in a 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional) oven for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring once or twice to prevent burning.

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix the mascarpone cheese, cream, vanilla extract, Erythritol and stevia. Optional for extra flavour: Open and scrape the vanilla bean and add the seeds into the mixture.

  2. If you are using fresh raspberries, add them to the mixture and gently break using a whisk. If you prefer a smooth texture, blend them first. If you're using frozen raspberries, thaw them before adding to the mixture. Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles
  3. Mix until well combined. Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles
  4. Using a spoon, fill in the popsicle molds. Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles
  5. Insert a wooden stick into each of them and place them in the freezer for at least 3-4 hours or until frozen. Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles
  6. Remove from he freezer and leave them at room temperature for 5 minutes. This will make it easier to remove from the molds. Pull the pops from the molds. Place them back to the freezer for about 30 minutes. They need to be well frozen before you start covering them in chocolate. Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles
  7. Break the chocolate into squares and add to a heatproof bowl or a non-stick pan. Pour a small amount of boiling water to a saucepan and heat until simmering. Suspend the bowl with chocolate over the water, but do not allow the base of the bowl to touch it. Let the chocolate melt, stirring regularly. Alternatively, place in a microwave oven for 30-60 seconds. You should use dark chocolate with at least at 85% cacao solids or even more. Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles
  8. Place crumbled freeze-dried raspberries on a plate and roughly chopped almonds on another. Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles

  10. Quickly cover in crumbled freeze-dried raspberries before the chocolate solidifies and repeat for half of the popsicles. Low-Carb Raspberry Mascarpone Popsicles

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Is there way I can convert this without using erythritol and stevia?

is there an alternative for the  mascarpone cheese? cream cheese or other?

Reply

Cream cheese or even coconut cream would work well as alternatives 😊

I wish there was a print option on your blog, website for each recipe so I didn't have to print entire page, or take screen shot of recipes.  Love your recipes but it is very hard to get them into my life unlike other blogs and websites. Thanks for taking my comments and suggestions and again I just love your blog/website.
Sincerely,
Wendy Ehardt

Thank you Wendy! We're working on some improvements and printing will soon be easy. For now, we have a basic "print" option - you can find it above the first image of every recipe (compact view is best). The reason it's different from other websites is that we don't use templates, our blog is completely custom made. It gives us flexibility but takes time to implement new features 😊

Im curious to what a serving size is . Obviously 1 bar but there are different size popsicle molds . How many ounces is a serving ? I just made these , some I did in ice cube trays for a small treat and others I did in popsicle molds . Can't wait to eat one ! Thanks for the recipe😊

Hi Jada, I just checked the ingredients and one serving should be about 100 grams / 3.5 oz excluding the chocolate coating. Hope you enjoy them! 😊
