Sometimes I need a guilt-free dessert and these Low Carb Strawberry Almond popsicles are the answer!
Kat and I have mentioned before that we try to eat low carb most of the time. My husband is the one who got us started on our low carb journey. Shortly after I had my second child he started eliminating carbs from his diet and after seeing what a difference it was making for him I jumped on board (Kat was soon to follow). Reducing the amount of carbs in our diet has been a huge change, not just in how we eat but how we feel. Even after almost 2 years I’m still amazed at how much better and more energetic I feel when I’m keep my carbs under control.
Now, that doesn’t mean we don’t still crave for dessert sometimes. Kat and I have gotten pretty good at figuring out ways to fill that sweet tooth without overloading on carbs. My latest find is EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control. It is specifically designed for active, carb-conscious people looking for a lean-protein weight-management solution. I like it all on its own as a way to manage hunger and increase my energy but I have been making a lot of different popsicles for the kids this summer and I wanted a frozen treat that I could eat without feeling guilty.
I mixed the strawberry EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control with crushed almonds, poured the mixture into popsicle molds, and put them in the freezer for 4-5 hours.
Once the popsicles where ready I had a low carb treat that was a great source of protein. It may not seem like much but these little pops have been the perfect answer to my sweet cravings and I love the crunchy almond pieces.
If you want to try EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control you can find them at Walmart in the pharmacy section near the supplements and protein shakes. You can also find it online at Walmart.com.
