These ice pops are as tasty as they are beautiful. They feature Vintage Seltzer‘s new blueberry seltzer which I sweetened naturally with a blend of erythritol, xylitol, and stevia and mixed berries. Since they are low calorie, low fat, and low carb you can eat almost as many as you want. These are so light and refreshing. The seltzer keeps them from getting too hard and the berries add bursts of flavor all the way through.
Every night at dinner at least one of my kids asks, “Mom, can we have seltzer?” About a year ago our seltzer obsession started. I had given up soda a few years before and then my husband followed suit. I didn’t like giving my kids juice or soda or chocolate milk but drinking water all day long can get a little boring. I began buying unsweetened flavored seltzer and it wasn’t long before all of us loved it. We drink at least a quart a day at dinner, sometimes two.
About a month ago I was in my local Shoprite and I saw cases of Vintage Pineapple Seltzer. Pineapple! Seltzer! I opened a bottle right there, took a sip, and fell in love. I walked out of Shoprite that day with 25 bottles of Vintage Pineapple Seltzer and another case of other flavors. This is a seasonal flavor so you better believe I will be stocking up before Pineapple Seltzer season is over. Vintage also has Limited Edition Blueberry and Peach-Mango flavors this summer. Vintage Seltzer’s new summer flavors are available until July 31st at Shoprite, Wegmans, and Stop N Shop New York. For locations nearest you visit Find Vintage.
The best parts about Vintage Seltzer is it is made with natural flavors, has zero calories, is sugar/fat/gluten free, has no artificial sweeteners, HFCS or FDC color. As a mom I feel good about letting my kids drink this every day. Did you know that adding seltzer your favorite homemade baked goods will give them a fluffier texture?
A little history lesson about this great brand: Started in 1978, in the Northeast, Vintage Seltzer is the #1 seltzer in the New York Metro area. Original is their best seller but they have many popular flavors to chose from like Lemon-Lime, Wild Cherry and Mandarin Orange. There’s a flavor for everyone.
2 cups Vintage Blueberry Seltzer
2 cups frozen mixed berries
1/4 cup sugar free sweetner, to taste, finely ground – I use my blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia – if you use another sweetener you may need to alter the amount. Mine is twice as sweet as sugar.
Mix the seltzer and sweetener in a 4 cup measure cup. It will bubble up. While the bubbles dissipate divide the berries between the pop molds. Pour the sweetened seltzer over the berries. If you have a little extra just drink it. It’s delicious! Insert sticks and freeze until firm, at least 6-8 hours.

This makes 10 ice pops. You will have to adjust the amount of berries, seltzer, and sweetener to make a lesser amount.
