With summer in full swing and the heat beating down upon us over here in Northern Illinois, USA… I find myself wanting a fudge-sicle…But we know those sugar filled sweet treats that the ice cream man sells just aren’t part of my healthy way of eating. So I mixed up a batch of Chocolate Custard, similar to the Vanilla Custard Shake I posted recently… and poured it into my Popsicle molds… TA DAHHH Sugar Free Chocolate Custard Pops.
These came out so smooth and creamy! Add the bonus of NO special ingredients and Winner Winner Sugar Free Chocolate Custard Pops ! …
Simple treats that use ingredients that can be found everyday in the grocery store are a huge bonus and the kids/grand-kids will love these.
I got my Popsicle molds from the dollar store…
(not the best source, but hey we do what we can afford at the time.)
but these would be awesome for my birthday next month…
My vegetable glycerine from walmart (in the pharmacy) and everything else from the grocery store.
This is a clickable link to the NOW vegetable glycerine on Amazon.
I’m going to go into a little detail about vegetable glycerine.
It is not approved as a sweetener on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, but it can be used in moderation with recipes like this.
The main reason that it is not a sweetener of choice is that cup for cup in contains MORE calories than table sugar !! But when using it in smaller amounts it lends creaminess to ice cream and puddings. We just need to be mindful of how much we are using and not overdo it.
I did dip a few of these in 1/4 cup lily’s chips melted with 2 TBS of coconut oil.
