No Carb Sherbet Pops

These no carb sherbet (er, sherbert as I was raised to call it) pops are proof that going low carb does not mean getting no flavor. Packed with your favorite gelatin flavor (in our case yummy raspberry), it’s the perfect treat for a hot day. Or cool day, as was the case here. I made pops, but you can also just pour the sherbet mixture into single-serve cups and freeze them.

The original recipe for no carb sherbet pops calls for using a small 4-serving box of gelatin, which is perfect. For double the flavor use the bigger 0.6 ounce box.

No Carb Sherbet Pops For an adult version, substitute wine or champagne for the club soda. If you don’t mind a few carbs add in some fruit (frozen fruit that has been slightly thawed is fine) before or after you puree the mixture.

For another no-carb summer treat, try my sno-cones and my cherry Slurpee, which can also be made low-carb. My orange dreamsicle is fantastic, but sadly, not low-carb.

  • Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until set.

Orange Creamsicle

It’s a nice hot day here in Indianapolis. The perfect weather to sit out on the deck and enjoy a super-cold orange creamsicle. Just like you remember from your childhood. Actually, better. Way better.

The really cool thing about this recipe is that you aren’t just restricted to making an orange creamsicle. Grab any juice you like and mix it in. Grape creamsicle? Why not?

Orange CreamsicleOur 4-pop popsicle molds hold just over 2 cups of liquid. Test yours first using water to find out how much they hold, and adjust the recipe if you need to. Another of my summer favorites (and super easy to make) are sno-cones with homemade syrup and no-carb sherbet pops.
