White Chocolate Raspberry Low Carb Lolly / Popsicle

Can you believe that today is the 1st September. For me 2016 is flying by so quickly, and for some it's Autumn, whilst for those living in the Southern Hemisphere it's Spring. Hopefully wherever you may be the weather is being kind and you may enjoy a sunny day ... in fact the kind of day when a Popsicle / lolly could be enjoyed.

These low-carb white chocolate raspberry Popsicles / lollies can be a great way to cool off on a hot summer day, or simply just to enjoy on a slightly cooler day.

The creamy rich white chocolate is balanced with a pop of raspberry. It’s hard to believe they are low-carb and dairy free. The recipe uses coconut milk as its base - it adds healthy fats and loads of creaminess to the recipe - but don’t worry if you don’t like the taste of coconut. These treats taste purely of white chocolate and raspberries. No coconut flavour here!

In this recipe the popsicle/lolly mold used makes 10 3-ounce pops/lollies, but you may need to adjust the recipe to fit the mold you use... and please don’t worry if you have any mixture left over after your molds are filled ... just pour it into a dessert dish, cover and refrigerate, and in three or four hours, it turns into a delicious mousse! 

1 envelope un-flavoured gelatin
½ cup unsweetened milk of choice (e.g.almond milk or coconut milk from a carton)
1 can organic coconut milk
4 ounces (organic) cocoa butter, food grade, finely chopped
3 Tablespoons Stevia Erythritol Mix
1 large egg
1 cup (organic) raspberries - frozen work fine
2 teaspoons vanilla

You can see the instructions here

- just a thought -
in a few weeks time the countryside may look like this

In the meantime hope you may enjoy a Popsicle / Lolly soon

All the best Jan

Hi Jan, I never thought I'd hear white chocolate and low carb in the same sentence 😊 these popsicles sound delicious and with summer only three months away will definitely be made! Your autumn image is gorgeous, we are experiencing my two favourite seasons, spring and autumn at the same time.. on opposite sides of the world 😊😊

I heard that eating dark chocolate will reduce our weight. It is nice to hear about white chocolate:)
