It's pretty much gone straight from winter to summer here, been running
the AC for a week already. Time to stock up on popsicles, right?

My granddaughter was diagnosed with diabetes recently and we've been
having fun trying new recipes and new foods. Her mom has made her some
peanut butter popsicles that she likes. But I was thinking we need some
other flavors - like fruit!

So I googled Jello popsicles and found one that used sugar-free Jello and
yogurt. We didn't have any strawberry jello to go with the key lime yogurt,
so I used raspberry jello. Used the quick set method with ice, stirred in the
yogurt and poured it into the molds. I'm anxious for it to freeze up now so
I can see if it tastes as good as I think it will. :D

that sounds delicious! let me know how they turn out.

I've heard jello popsicles, not with yogurt in them, are good for teething kids too as they don't melt or something? Don't remember what I read, lol, but it was something like that.

Yeah I read that too, that they don't melt. It will be interesting to find out.

Try Pinterest, if you do that sort of thing. I refused to join for a while, and now that I have, I'm addicted. They have sooo many recipes for stuff.

I finally got to try one, while riding in the car, it's hot here today, and
there were no drips! It was really yummy. Now I wanna try other flavors,
both mixing it with flavored yogurt and without any yogurt.

Recipe for Peanut Butter Popsicles

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener or erythritol
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp stevia extract
3/4 cup heavy cream


In large bowl, beat all ingredients together until combined and smooth.
Spoon into 8-12 popsicle molds (depending on size) and tap molds firmly on counter to release as many air bubbles as possible.
Place popsicle sticks in center of each.
Freeze 4 hours until firm.
Remove from molds by running under hot water or placing in bowl of hot water for 30 seconds, then gently twisting sticks until they release.


Can be coated in chocolate.
Melt 4 oz of chocolate or cacao in double boiler or microwave.
Dip popsicle into chocolate about halfway, then let excess drip back into bowl - or hold upright and let chocolate drip down the sides of the popsicle.
When chocolate is firm, place on parchment or waxed paper lined baking pan and place in freezer.

I googled and found this one ...

Peanut Butter Yogurt Popsicles

2 cups plain yogurt
1 cup milk
1 1/4 cups smooth peanut butter (I used what I had: crunchy natural peanut butter)
1/2 cup honey

Add all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Fill in popsicle molds, or little cups with a popsicle stick in the middle. Freeze until solid. They come out of the cups easily by running them under hot water for a few seconds.

You can slice and freeze some bananas (in a single layers w/ wax paper in between) then toss 'em in a blender with some peanut butter, or fruit, or chocolate, or other yummy options of your choice.

If you don't have popsicle mold thingies, you can use recycled yogurt cups and popsicle sticks. :)

Others can do that - bananas aren't a good choice for diabetics apparently.

I didn't follow the recipe exactly - I rarely do. :lol: Here's how I did it.

Jello Yogurt Popsicles

Boil 3/4 cup of water in the microwave and stir in the jello until completely dissolved.

Add about 8 large ice cubes and stir until ice is mostly melted, then scoop them out with a fork.

Stir in one serving cup of yogurt - can be flavored or unflavored - until no clumps are left.

Pour into popsicle molds or small plastic cups. Insert popsicle sticks or plastic spoons.
The jello should be semi-set enough to hold the sticks upright.

Freeze for about 2 hours, or longer.

Saw a package of butterscotch instant sugar-free pudding in the cupboard,
so yep ... I mixed it up and poured it into the molds. Bet that's gonna be
yummy too.

Making homemade pizza for supper tonight - using lavash flatbread lo-carb
for the crust. Thin and crispy, just the way I like it. White sauce, chicken
and peppers on one. Pizza sauce and pepperoni on the other. Lots of ooey
gooey cheese. It bakes really quick so it shouldn't heat up the house too
much I hope.

Lunacie .....have you tried the pizza crusts that are in the fridge section, the one with crescent rolls and biscuits ? ....they have it in both thin and reg. crust and an artisan crust ( which of course has the most calories,...weird )

....I have used a reg sized cookie sheet and really stretched the dough out ....and makes a darned good pizza.....

oh drat, now I want a pizza.....

Salleh, I love those refrigerated pizza doughs, especially to make what we
call a calzone. Unfortunately they are not lo-carb though.

I'm going to try making a calzone with these lavosh breads next week. Our
favorite so far was crumbled browned sausage, lots of onions, spinach, and
lots of cheese - just jumbled down the center and then each side folded
over and the ends sealed.
