With only six ingredients these Creamy Dreamy Strawberry Whipped Keto Pops are the perfect summertime frozen treat for sticking to your keto diet plan and for indulging in something deliciously sweet.
Here at my house, we’re trying hard to lose weight by sticking to our new keto lifestyle eating plan. If you’re unfamiliar with the keto diet plan, it’s basically avoiding unhealthy carbohydrates and incorporating healthy fats into your daily eating, which is why I developed this recipe for Creamy Dreamy Frozen Strawberry Whipped Keto Pops.
While it may seem counterintuitive to indulge in dishes made with heavy whipping cream, bacon, cheese, avocados, and eggs, after researching the keto eating plan you’ll find that these are the foods that feed the brain and encourage fat loss in the human body. Contrary to what we were taught in the past, fat (good fats) don’t cause body fat. Sugar does.
If you’re interested in learning more about the keto eating plan, there is TONS of information on the web about it. Naturally, you’ll read good things, and not so good things about the keto eating plan, but that’s basically true about anything and everything under the sun.
What I do know is that we’ve been having success with the plan after the first month, and hardly ever feel hungry. In addition, I’ve basically never once craved high starch foods like potatoes or bread since starting. I call that success right there!
**I’ll make sure to leave a few informative links about the keto eating plan at the end of this post if you’re interested in finding out more.
But now, back to our recipe of Creamy Dreamy Frozen Strawberry Whipped Keto Pops which are NOT only for those of you on a keto eating plan! EVERYONE will love them…even the kids!

Making Creamy Dreamy Frozen Strawberry Whipped Keto Pops take about 5 minutes to make before popping them in the freezer. Let me walk you through how easy they are to make;
Rough chop approximately ½ pint of fresh strawberries. In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form and then add the protein powder and swerve sweetener.
Fold the almond extract, chopped strawberries and a drop or two of red gel food color (optional) into the whipped cream mixture.
Add fresh lime juice to the strawberry whip and spoon the mixture into the pop maker.
Freeze the pops for 60 minutes then add the sticks to the pops. Freeze until fully frozen. To remove the pops from the form, run the individual plastic pop under hot water or dip into a bowl of hot water. Gently pull the stick to release the Creamy Dreamy Frozen Strawberry Whipped Keto Pop from the form. Enjoy!!
