Funnyman wasn’t entirely convinced when I broached the subject of doing keto with me. He has a massive sweet tooth and the thought of giving up his after-dinner treats didn’t sit well with him. A client of mine in the US suggested I try Swerve® (a brand that makes confectioner’s / powdered Erythritol) as a sugar replacement in my cooking and baking and I have never looked back. After Funnyman watched the documentary MAGIC PILL in May 2018, he was amped to start. These lollies were actually the first thing I made him. Of course, I then had to become a lolly-making machine because he happily enjoys one of these most nights. He is down almost 12kg / 26.5lb now and counting (read more about our journey here) …
Place the blueberries in a small pan and add a tablespoon of water. Cook them over moderate heat for 5-10 minutes, then use a potato masher to crush them. Continue to cook until you have a thick puree. Set aside to cool.
Combine the yogurt, cream and Swerve® confectioner’s sweetener in a large bowl and mix until full combined. Fold in the blueberry mix and pour the mixture into 6 ice lolly moulds (100ml / 3.4 fl. oz) in capacity. (You will have some mixture leftover, which you can save for breakfast the next day.)
Click the lid/stick in place of each one, and place in the freezer overnight.
Transfer the popsicles to the fridge 30 minutes before eating or simply run hot water on the outside of the mould to make it easier to slide out.

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 5g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
