White Chocolate Raspberry Lolly (Popsicle) : Low Carb and Dairy Free


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!

Ingredients:
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
Instructions:

Very interesting, and informative. I LOVE raspberries. And, I love white chocolate too. I have never had them together though. I'll bet this is as delicious as it sounds. Thanks for sharing this COOL idea.

Wishing you a Happy 4th of July, Jan!

A sun hat would be blown off my head if I wore one here today, the beautiful sunshine we had on Saturday has been replaced by black clouds and high winds. That lolly looks delicious.

Does the canned coconut milk have sugar?

Hello Karen, many thanks for your comment and question.
Yes canned coconut milk does contain a small amount of sugar, and you will need to read the nutrients list to get the exact amount.

In the recipe here, each popsicle/lolly has 3g net carbs, more to see here

There is also an in-depth article called
'Is Coconut Milk Good for You? How Many Carbs, Fat, Protein & Sugar in Coconut Milk'
that you may like to read - find it here

Hope this helps.

All the best Jan

While we have a source for a lowcarb ice cream, I was wishing there was a way to have a popsicle or a sherbet. This sound like it could fill the bill.

Well I must say they do look rather appetising even for me as I'm not a lover of white chocolate or dark.

They look so good and tasty. I just wish the sun would appear on the Island so that we could enjoy eating them to cool off.

Maggie said...
