My latest cooking adventure was Low Carb Strawberry Popsicles. The heat is definitely taking over South Carolina. It’s already unbearable and it’s only July. I needed a tasty frozen dessert while I wait for my ice cream maker that I hopefully will be getting for my birthday at the end of July (*hint, hint* to my fiancé). I have tried making popscicles before, but they usually end up hard as a rock and I practically break my teeth eating them because I’m so impatient. Well these popsicles had the perfect consistency!
2 Tbsp sweetener of choice (I used Swerve)
1/4 oz package gelatin
1/4 cup water
Place the strawberries in a bowl and add the sweetener. Stir to combine and allow to sit for 1 hour. After one hour, place the strawberries in a blender and puree until smooth (taste and add more sweetener if needed). Place the water in a bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the water (sit for 1 minute). In a medium saucepan, heat the strawberry puree over medium heat until heated through. Next, whisk in the gelatin until the mixture is smooth. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
