These Sugar Free Popsicles are as tasty as they are beautiful. They feature 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.
Sugar Free Popsicles Berrylicious Ice Pops
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 grocery store and I saw cases of Pineapple Seltzer. Pineapple! Seltzer! I opened a bottle right there, took a sip, and fell in love. I walked out that day with 25 bottles of Pineapple Seltzer and another case of other flavors.
My kids love seltzer so using it in ice pops was a natural conclusion.
The best parts about seltzer are 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?
Sugar Free Popsicles Ingredients:
