What Makes These Jello Popsicles So Great?

  • Fast. Sure, you have to wait for them to freeze, but the prep time is next to nothing.
  • Easy. Make jello solution, add liquid jello to a blender with cream, and freeze. That’s it.
  • Low Carb. Only one single carb per serving.
  • Inexpensive. Make this whole recipe for under $2. You would never find a keto popsicle at the grocery store for that price.
  • Kid-Friendly. What kid doesn’t like jello? Pick your favorite flavor (or flavors) and let the kids help make them.

Sugar Free Popsicles | Keto Popsicle Recipe

Summer is hot in Texas. I mean, it’s hot everywhere, but it’s especially hot in Texas. My way of eating doesn’t take a break during the hot months, because it’s been a lifestyle change for my husband and me, BUT that doesn’t take away the want for us to cool off with a frozen treat.

These Jello Ice Pops hit the spot and as a bonus, they’re only three ingredients make an excellent Keto Fat Bomb.

Creamsicle Popsicles are a low-carb recipe and actually they’re a fat bomb recipe, but you’d never know it by tasting them. These are all you expect and hope from a creamy popsicle and they were a welcome sweet treat after dinner.

These would be perfect for the whole family and kids will LOVE them!

What Are Creamsicles?

So, if you’re unaware of what Creamsicle Popsicles are, I’ll tell you. They’re creamy jello popsicles flavored with orange and vanilla and come together in the best sweet and tangy flavor combo ever.

This may be an American thing. I would actually love to know what these types of popsicles are called in whatever part of the world you live in.

What Do These Sugar Free Popsicles Taste Like?

I will tell you that these jello freezer pops do taste a little bit grainy once they’re frozen. I have tried several different variations–four different ones, but who’s counting? (Me, that’s who).

I think once you freeze gelatin, the crystals just become–more crystally I suppose. But you get to love the slight chew in these jello ice pops after you get over your first surprise. Or at least, Roger and I did. I hope you welcome that texture too.

The key is to make absolutely sure the gelatin is well dissolved before you freeze them. Hot/warm water helps a lot with this process, but nothing beats good old fashioned elbow grease for stirring.

How To Make Keto Popsicles

  1. Put boiling water into a heat-proof bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin on top and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir and ensure the gelatin is well-incorporated. If it is still grainy, place the bowl in the microwave and cook for 30 seconds. Stir again. 
  3. Pour cream into a blender jar. Add the gelatin mixture and beat until the mix is creamy and well blended, stopping to scrape the sides down to get all the gelatin crystals mixed in as needed. About 30 seconds in a high powered blender is all you need.
  4. Pour into 6 popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.

Tips and Tricks for Making Creamsicle Popsicles

  • One note about the jello popsicle molds. I have tried so many popsicle molds, it’s a little crazy. Now I use two models, and this Zoku pop mold is the one I used to make these popsicles. I like that the mold stands up by itself, and it helps release the pops very easily. It’s also a lot easier to clean than some of the others I’ve tried so I would recommend these.
  • Do not over blend the gelatin mixture! If you over blend the mixture it will end up turning into jello butter, which is certainly not what we’re going for here. About 30 seconds in a high powered blender is all you need.
  • If you’re in need of a good, solid blender, check out this Vitamix Blender. They’re wonderful blenders and they’re what I use in my own kitchen. A more affordable and great blender is the Ace Instant Pot Blender.
  • Make absolutely sure the gelatin is well dissolved before you freeze them. Hot/warm water helps a lot with this process, but nothing beats good old fashioned elbow grease for stirring.
  • For a vegan version, use a vegetarian/agar-agar based gelatin, such as this Simply Delish Dessert Jel.
  • If you are dairy-free, try these with canned, full-fat coconut milk instead of the heavy whipping cream.
  • Plan to freeze for at least 4 hours before they harden. Do not leave these in the freezer for too long as the jello seems to get grainier over time. Plan to eat them within a day or two.

  • Pour cream into a blender jar. Add the gelatin mixture and beat until the mix is creamy and well blended, stopping to scrape the sides down to get all the gelatin crystals mixed in as needed. Do not over-blend, or you will have jello butter from that whipping cream turning into butter (Ask me how I know this.) About 30 seconds in a high powered blender is all you need.   

  • Pour into 6 popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.
