Ingredients (makes 8 servings)

Note: You can add 1 tsp xanthan gum or 1 tbsp arrowroot powder (paleo option). This will prevent the pops from getting hard as rock and will make them get smoother. Make sure you add extra carbs (if arrowroot powder is used). When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

Instructions

  1. Dice the watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe melon. Low-Carb Triple Melon Popsicles
  2. Blend each melon in a separate bowl and squeeze 1/2 lime in of them. Add stevia to taste (5-10 drops in each bowl). Low-Carb Triple Melon Popsicles
  3. Start pouring the first layer into the pop molds. Distribute evenly and place in the freezer for about an hour just enough to get a thin layer of ice crust.
    Note: If you pour all the layers on top of each other at once, they will blend together. A hour in the freezer is enough to prevent mixing. Low-Carb Triple Melon Popsicles
  4. Add the second layer and place in the freezer for another hour. Low-Carb Triple Melon Popsicles
    Finally, add the last layer, insert wooden sticks if your molds don't come with sticks or build-in handles and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Remove pops from the molds just before serving and enjoy! :-) Low-Carb Triple Melon Popsicles

Useful tips

If you prefer something easier and ready in half the time, just fill each pop mould with a single melon mixture. Keep in mind this will slightly affect the net carbs content as honeydew melon has slightly more carbs than watermelon or cantaloupe. You can also try popsicles with galia melon which has less carbs. Here is the net carbs content per 100 g / 3.5 oz:

  • watermelon: 7.2 g
  • honeydew: 8.3 g
  • cantaloupe: 7.3 g
  • galia: 5.2 g

These numbers are average and the actual net carbs content also depends on how ripe the melons are.

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.

Could you make ice lollies with berries? If so how would you go about it please? Would that be lower carb? Thanks! ☺️
