Can I make these popsicles dairy-free?

Yes! Simply replace the mascarpone cheese with creamed coconut milk (coconut cream).

What can I use instead of mascarpone cheese?

You can use cream cheese for a cheesecake-like taste.

What else can I use instead of blueberries?

Try strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries for a different twist. You can also add cacao powder to half of the mixture and swirl it in for a marbled effect.

What’s the best sweetener to use?

Allulose is the best option as it behaves and tastes like sugar. Powdered Swerve, Erythritol, or liquid stevia also work well.

Will these popsicles be no-icy?

Yes! The combination of egg yolks and mascarpone cheese will make these popsicles naturally smooth and creamy. Even better, make sure to use Allulose. If you use any alternatives such as cream cheese or coconut milk, add a tablespoon of vegetable glycerine or MCT oil to maintain the same creamy, no-icy texture.

How To Make Keto Vanilla Custard Popsicles

Prepare the Custard Base. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks and powdered sweetener with an electric whisk until the mixture becomes pale in color.

Add Creamy Mascarpone. Add the mascarpone cheese or creamed coconut milk to the egg yolk mixture. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Stir in the sugar-free vanilla extract.

Assemble the Popsicles. Spoon a layer of the custard mixture into the popsicle molds, filling about one-third of each mold. Add a few blueberries to each mold. Add another layer of the custard mixture, followed by more blueberries, and then top with the remaining custard mixture.

Tips for Best Keto Vanilla Custard Popsicles

  • Use the Right Popsicle Molds: Each mold should hold about 3 oz (90 ml) of the mixture to ensure even freezing and perfect portion sizes.
  • Avoid Crystallization if Making Swaps: To keep the popsicles smooth and creamy, add a tablespoon of vegetable glycerine or MCT oil if you’re using ingredients with higher water content, like coconut milk.
  • Freeze Completely: Make sure to freeze the popsicles for at least 3 hours or until fully set to ensure they come out of the molds cleanly.
  • Use Pasteurized Eggs: For peace of mind, use pasteurized eggs or eggs with the British Lion mark to ensure they’re safe to consume raw. You can also pasteurize eggs at home by heating them in water at 140°F (60°C) for about 3 minutes.
  • Swirl for a Marbled Effect: If adding cacao powder for a chocolate swirl, gently stir it into half the mixture before layering it in the molds for a beautiful marbled look.

Storage Instructions

These keto vanilla custard popsicles will last up to 3 months when stored in a freezer-safe bag or container.
