Keto Eggnog Creamsicles

Its that time of year again when we as adults enjoy making a classic rum holiday drink, Eggnog. In making it keto friendly, we are mainly just substituting the sugar from the original recipe. This year why not make your traditional eggnog drink into a dessert, creamsicles! If you’d like to keep it simple, you may use this recipe the same only adding it into a pitcher to consume as a drink vs Popsicle molds. But honestly, who doesn’t like the idea of a boozy pop? Adults only, of course. You can make a second batch with no alcohol for your kids to enjoy as well. If you do choose to make these creamscile treats, you would have to add less alcohol into the recipe. As you know, liquor does not freeze, especially if the alcohol is over 40 proof. In making eggnog to consume as a drink, typically you would add 7.5 ounces of rum. For the dessert version, I wold suggest adding 4.5 ounces. This way the pops hold together. Based on trial and error, I had originally added the 7.5 ounces of rum. As a result, in freezing for a few hours, the texture was soft like ice cream. Not a bad option as well, but it melted pretty fast. I, then, left the remaining pops in the freezer for two days and it held together better. Round two, I added 4.5 ounces to the mix and it held together faster in just a few hours. I would leave them in the freezer for at least half the day.
When it comes to heavy cream, it is optional. I substituted the heavy cream for coconut cream for more of a dessert taste. If you would like to use heavy cream, make sure to alter your macros for this recipe. Staying consistent on keto is when you will see the best results! Whats great about the serving size to this recipe is that you will definitely have some eggnog drink left over after you added some to your Popsicle molds. Molds are usually sold in pairs of 6. Since you would have extra, you may then go back to adding more rum into your drink if you prefer. Just add three more ounces. Its important to note, alcohol and keto can be done. Just be mindful of your consumption, everything in moderation. Alcohol tends to slow down the fat burning process, but once in a while it won’t harm your hard work. Its the holidays, lets kick back and enjoy the many options keto gives us. If you’d like to add more to this treat, I would recommend melting some chocolate and dipping your creamsicle in it! I used Montezuma Dark Chocolate, found in Trader Joe’s and Amazon. Best low carb dark chocolate, in my opinion. The macros to the chocolate are not included in the macros I gave. I will provide a link to the molds I purchased on Amazon. They are three ounce molds and are great to use all year round.
