Keto Strawberry Ice Cream Pops only require a few ingredients and the keto corn syrup is optional.
- Strawberries: fresh strawberries were used for this recipe although frozen would also work.
- Sweetener: use your favorite sweetener for this recipe, we used erythritol but allulose, monk fruit, or stevia will also work, depending on your preference.
- Coconut Cream: we used coconut cream to keep it dairy free, heavy whipping cream will also work if you don't want a dairy free ice cream.
- Coconut Milk: we find the blend of coconut cream and coconut milk enhance the texture without making it too thick.
- Vanilla Extract: to enhance the intense flavors of the strawberries.
- Keto Corn Syrup: an optional ingredient that helps to make the texture of the ice cream less icy.

Steps by step instructions
How to make Keto Strawberry Ice Cream Popsicles?
STEP 1: Trim, cut into quarters and wash the fresh strawberries if using. Add to a small sauce pan with the sweetener, stir and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Stirring often.
STEP 2: After simmering for 10 minutes, mash the strawberries with a potato masher, no need to mash them too much as we will be blending everything together later. Set aside and allow to cool.
STEP 3: In a large bowl whisk together the coconut cream, coconut milk, keto corn syrup (if using), and vanilla extract. Add the cooled strawberry mixture and combine. Transfer to a blender and blend on high for about 1 minute.
- STEP 4: Pour into the ice cream popsicle mold. I used a teapot with a spout to help to pour into the mold a little easier. Your blender may have a spout that would work.
STEP 5: Add the cover and popsicle sticks to the mold, ensuring to leave enough of the stick in order to pull out the popsicles later.
STEP 6: Freeze for 4 to 6 hours and enjoy.
