Pumpkin Spice Popsicles
All that pumpkin pie flavor in a creamy popsicle....and low carb!
Servings 9 pops
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup almond milk unsweetened
- 1/3 cup low carb sweetener Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie extract or vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
In a saucepan over a medium heat add cream, low carb sweetener, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice mix. 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 pumpkin pie extract. While whisking the pumpkin mixture sprinkle in xanthan gum and thoroughly incorporate into the pumpkin liquid.
Set aside the pumpkin spice popsicle mixture to cool on counter for a few mins. You will want to have the mixture in a container (like a large measuring cup) to easily pour into your popsicle molds.
Pour pumpkin spice popsicle 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 Pumpkin Spice 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.
*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.
