Summer is hot in Texas. I mean, it’s hot everywhere, but it’s especially hot in Texas. My diet doesn’t take a break during the hot months, because it’s been a lifestyle change for my husband and me, BUT that doesn’t take away the want for us to cool off with a frozen treat. These Creamsicle Pops hit the spot and as a bonus, they make an excellent Keto Fat Bomb.
These Creamsicle Pops are a low-carb recipe and actually they’re a fat bomb recipe, but you’d never know it by tasting them. These are all you expect and hope from a creamy popsicle and they were a welcome sweet treat after dinner. These would be perfect for the whole family and kids will LOVE them!
Low Carb Keto Creamsicle Pops
So, if you’re unaware of what Creamsicle Pops are, I’ll tell you. Creamsicle Pops are creamy popsicles flavored with orange and vanilla and come together in the best sweet and tangy flavor combo ever.
This particular recipe is low carb and keto, because my husband and I follow a Keto lifestyle. Honestly, even if you’re not on a diet these little Creamsicle Pops rock. The best thing? You only need three ingredients to make these and a few hours in the freezer and that’s it!

One note about popsicle molds. I have tried so many popsicle molds, it’s a little crazy. I now use two models, and this Zoku pop mold is the one I used to make these popsicles. I like that the mold stands up by itself, and it helps release the pops very easily. It’s also a lot easier to clean than some of the others I’ve tried so I would recommend these.
How do these Low Carb Keto Creamsicle Pops Taste?
I will tell you that these popsicles do taste a little bit grainy once they’re frozen. I have tried several different variations–four different ones, but who’s counting? (Me, that’s who). I think once you freeze gelatin, the crystals just become–more crystally I suppose. But you get to love the slight chew in these pops after you get over your first surprise. Or at least, Roger and I did. I hope you welcome that texture too.

Want a summer treat you don't have to feel guilty about? These Creamsicle Pops are so easy you won't even notice they're low carb!
- 1 0.3 oz package orange sugar free gelatin (small package)
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
Put boiling water into a heat-proof bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin on top and let it rest for 10 minutes. Stir and ensure the gelatin is well-incorporated. If it is still grainy, place the bowl in the microwave and cook for 30 seconds. Stir again.
Pour cream into a blender jar. Add the gelatin mixture and beat until the mix is creamy and well blended, stopping to scrape the sides down to get all the gelatin crystals mixed in as needed. Do not over-blend, or you will have jello butter from that whipping cream turning into butter (Ask me how I know this.) About 30 seconds in a high powered blender is all you need.
Pour into 6 popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.
- Use these Zoku Pop Molds for best results
- For a vegetarian version, use a vegetarian/agar-agar based gelatin
