Banana Extract is the trick

This is the exact same recipe as my Keto Strawberry Pops, except I swapped out the vanilla for banana extract.

It’s a simple swap and an easy way for me to get my banana fix.

Keto Popsicle Tips

It’s always fun to be handed a perfectly shaped Keto Strawberry Banana Popsicles. A low carb treat straight from the freezer on a hot summer day.  I actually get a skip in my step. It’s extra special when I pull out of the freezer something that looks like store bought.

Professional looking fudgesicle or popsicle molds don’t take up a ton of space in your freezer. Once your pops are frozen solid store your Keto Strawberry Banana Popsicles out of the molds and in a ziploc.

The Popsicle Molds

I have a silicone mold and a metal/plastic fudgesicle or popsicle mold.  
Both versions work well. I prefer the silicone mold (to the plastic mold) as I can peel back the sides of the fudgesicle or popsicle.  

Either version is inexpensive and easily found at Target or on Amazon at this link. They range from ($12-30). You can use them over and over and over again for your Keto Fudgesicles, Creamsicles and Popsicles in any flavor imaginable.

For a small investment in the molds ($12-18) you can wash them and reuse them. So many flavors to be made and stored in your freezer.

Not just Strawberry Banana flavor

2g net carbs-YAY!

However…you don’t need fancy fudgesicle or popsicle molds! Any small paper dixie cup will work just fine. Sometimes I even prefer the small paper cups to the molds as they are smaller serving size and there’s no clean up.

The molds typically come with a cover to hold the stick in place. If you are using paper cups simply wait until your mixture is slightly frozen. Place a fudgesicle or popsicle stick in the center of the slushy cup. If the stick still falls to the side you can wait a little longer for your slush to get a little thicker.

Unmolding…

To unmold your Keto Strawberry Banana Popsicles from the plastic molds simply set the mold out on the counter for 5-7 minutes.  If you can not wait then dip the mold in warm water for 30 seconds to a minute and then slide a fudgesicle or popsicles out.

The silicone molds are slightly easier as you gently peel back the sides and give them a tug every couple seconds to see if they’re loose yet. We don’t want to soften them any more than absolutely necessary.

If the stick comes out before the fudgesicle or popsicle is fully frozen then they just weren’t frozen enough…and that really sucks! You’ll want to freeze your Keto Strawberry Banana Popsicles at least overnight, but preferably a full 24 hours just to be certain they’re hard enough to unmold.

Trust me…there is nothing more sad than having part of your slush still at the bottom of the mold.

The cool thing about using the little paper dixie cups is that there is no unmolding to be done.  Simply remove your cup from the freezer and tear away the paper cup to enjoy. I use a small knife or a pair of scissors to make a small cut in the top of the cup and then tear away. Easy peasy!

If you use the molds there is another step in the process before you can enjoy your Keto Strawberry Banana Popsicles and creamsicles. After I unmold all of the fudgesicles and popsicles and I place them on the tray.

Freezing and Storage

I refreeze them for 10 minutes out of their molds before putting them in a freezer bag. You can also separate them in their freezer bags by placing extra strips of parchment paper in between each pop.

Plastic freezer bags (gallon sized ziploc bags) ensure that your popsicles don’t pick up the flavor or smell of anything else in your freezer.  No one likes the taste of a Keto Strawberry Banana Pops with a hint of enchilada casserole, right?

This extra step ensures that any melting/softening that happens when you unmold them doesn’t mess up their shapes . The parchment paper in between each pop as you place in the freezer bag keeps the fudgesicles and popsicles separated.

I would be remiss…

Keto Strawberry Ice Pops

Keto Strawberry Banana Popsicles

A refreshing fruity combo of strawberries and 'BANANA' in a popsicle, but low carb!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Freezing Time: 1 day
Total Time: 1 day 10 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: easy dessert, keto dessert
Servings: 8 pops
Calories: 115kcal
Author: The Kellie Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup almond milk unsweetened or water
  • 1/3 cup low carb sweetener Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener
  • 1 cup strawberries mashed
  • 2 tsp banana extract
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum

Instructions

  • In a saucepan over a medium heat add cream, low carb sweetener and mashed strawberries. Whisk all together to combine. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a steady simmer for 1-2 minutes or until mixture starts to slightly thicken.
  • Remove saucepan from the heat and stir in almond milk and banana extract. While whisking the strawberry mixture sprinkle in xanthan gum and thoroughly incorporate into the strawberry liquid.
  • *Optional……Use a hand immersion blender or transfer to a blender to blend all together and puree the mixture.
  • Set aside the strawberry banana mixture to cool on counter for a few mins. You will want to have the strawberry banana mixture in a container (like a large measuring cup) to easily pour into your popsicle molds.
  • Pour strawberry banana mixture into each mold (traditional popsicle mold or dixie cups).
  • Cover and place wooden popsicle stick in each pop. (Cover with foil before you place the wooden sticks if your mold doesn’t come with a cover…then stick the sticks through the foil to hold them in place).
  • Freeze Strawberry Banana Cream Popsicles for at least 24 hours or more.
  • Depending on your molds either run mold under warm water to loosen your Strawberry Banana Popsicle. If you use paper cups just pull straight from the freezer and tear paper away from your pop.

Notes

*I like my popsicles with chunky bits of fruit so I do not puree.
*Be sure to keep your pops in a ziploc bag as they tend to pick up the flavors in your freezer.
**Popsicle molds are optional. Before I bought my molds I just used little paper dixie cups and they worked great. Sometimes I prefer the dixie cups, because you just tear away the cup when you’re ready to enjoy your frozen pop.

Sorry, it’s that simple for me…I meal prep and almost always cook at home.
