Made with just 5 simple ingredients, these delicious Low Carb Mocha Popsicles will be a hit all summer long! These are not only delicious, but also sugar free, gluten free and Keto friendly.
Let's face it, it's been way too hot and humid lately and it's only the middle of July. We have a long way to go before the cooler temperatures come back.
I love to make homemade popsicles with clean, healthy ingredients so I know I can enjoy these babies guilt-free. Simple to make, healthy, sugar free and delicious. What's not to love here?
Chocolate and coffee are a match made in heaven. But you knew that already.
Why You Should Make These Popsicles
Making your own popsicles is so ridiculously easy and the best part is you can control the ingredients. That's so important to me because there are so many ones in the grocery stores with unnecessary junky ingredients and added sugar.
Not only are these mocha popsicles healthy and sugar free, but they take minutes to prepare. I use these silicone popsicle molds because they lay flat in the freezer and don't take up much space, but I also use these popsicle molds and they are simple to use as well.
- Coconut milk- I use the full fat coconut milk in a can. It is thicker than coconut milk in cartons (less water content) and is pure coconut milk with no additives .
- Almond butter- I use natural almond butter where the ingredients are only almonds and salt, nothing else. Please read your labels because many of the almond butters in the grocery store contain unnecessary sugar and additives.
- Monk fruit- this is my sugar free sweetener of choice, but you can also use Erythritol or even powdered Monk fruit as well
- Granulated coffee- you can use whatever you have in the house! I've made these with French Vanilla, regular coffee and decaf and they were all delicious.
- Sugar free chocolate- be careful when you choose your sugar free chocolate, many of them contain sugar alcohols that may cause intestinal discomfort. Some of the common ones include mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol, lactitol, and maltitol. Always read your ingredient labels! I love Lily's chocolate and ChocZero chocolate.
How To Make These Popsicles
These are so insanely simple to prepare, I make them almost weekly.
You throw all of the ingredients in your blender, blend them and pour in the popsicle molds. Yup, that's it.
And these popsicles use just a few easy, healthy ingredients that you most likely have in your house already. It's also a great way to use up leftover coffee (if that even is a thing!)
Recipe FAQ's and Expert Tips
I like to run the mold under warm water for about 20 seconds and then they come out really easily.
If you keep these for longer then a week, I recommend placing them in an airtight plastic bag, making sure to place parchment paper or wax paper in between the popsicles to prevent them from sticking together.
If this continues to happen, I recommend placing them in the freezer for 20-30 minutes so they are slightly harder and then place the stick in the middle. They won't slip, I promise!
- 1 can coconut milk
- ¼ cup natural almond butter
- 3 tablespoons Monk fruit, granular more to taste
- 2 tablespoons granulated coffee, diluted in ¼ cup hot water
- ½ cup sugar free dark chocolate, optional
- Place all the ingredients, except the dark chocolate, in a blender. Blend until combined.
- Pour the liquid into the popsicle molds. Don’t forget to add the popsicle sticks to the molds.
- Freeze them for at least 4 hours or until completely hardened.
- Keep them in the freezer for up to 2 months.
- Optional: before serving, coat them with melted chocolate; it will immediately harden and give an extra crunchy bite.
- Adjust sweetness to your taste. When using coffee and dark cacao powder, bitterness can differ from one brand to another and from my taste to others’ as well.
- For storing them, I recommend placing these popsicles in an airtight plastic bag, making sure to place parchment paper or wax paper in between the popsicles to prevent them from sticking together.
