More about following a keto diet plan:
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) doesn't cause body fat. Sugar does.
If you're interested in learning more about the keto eating plan, there is a wealth of information on the internet.
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.
You can learn much more about the keto diet lifestyle by checking out articles at Keto Watt.
My experience with eating a keto diet plan:
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!

How to make strawberry keto popsicles using heavy cream;
- Roughly 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 (optional) 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 running hot water or dip into a bowl of hot water.
- Gently pull the stick to release the strawberry cream popsicle from the form, and enjoy!!
Why add lime to the recipe? Can I leave it out?
- You can leave it out, but I wouldn't suggest it!
- Because of the high-fat content of these strawberry whipped cream pops, the added lime juice cuts through that heaviness and gives brightness and lightness to these pop that really makes them, well, POP with flavor!
Can I make this recipe if I don't have a stand mixer?
- A stand mixer will make it easier to whip the heavy cream, but it's not necessary.
- A good hand mixer or some good old-fashioned hand-whipping will also work. It will only take a little longer.
- For any of these methods, start with a bowl and beaters that have been well chilled for optimal whipping.
