~*~*~Low Carb Paletas de Coco ~*~*~
What you'll need:
1 can Media Crema Table Cream (Threw the can out before I got the measurement, pretty standard though)
2/3 Cup Sweetener (I used Swerve which is basically Erythritol but measures cup for cup like sugar)
2 Tb Unflavored Whey Protein powder (I only had vanilla on hand so that's what I used)
1/2 Tb Vanilla
1 can 13.5-15oz can Coconut milk
Unsweetened coconut shreds (optional)
*Optional add ins - Mango, Pineapple, Guava
Combine the first 4 ingredients and simmer over medium heat until it thickens - Takes a few minutes. To this mixture add the can of coconut milk, again simmer until slightly thicker another few minutes (It doesn't get super thick so don't go on thinking you need to cook it for a long time) Remove from heat and allow to cool about 10 minutes. Add as much or as little of the coconut shreds to the mixture as you like. Pour into molds and freeze.
These are very rich and creamy. Next time I will try the "Light" coconut milk from Trader Joes and see how I like them. That will shave off about 10 carbs from the total count.
Approximately 4.75 net carbs per bar
