Have you ever found yourself wanting something sweet right after dinner but you’re dangerously close to your carb limit? These little low carb Popsicles with lemon and buttermilk may just be the thing to help you out. They’re small, delicately flavored, and not overly sweet — a perfect Summertime treat. And at just 60 calories and 1 carb each, you’ll want to keep them with-in reach.
My kids have been crying out for treats lately. It’s not like I don’t have fruit in the house, or 3 test cakes in the freezer as well as good-but-not-great test treats in the fridge for their lunches. I guess they are feeling deprived. Poor babies. As cold as it was last week, I decided to play around with some ingredients I had on hand (read: try to use them up before they spoiled).
Lurking on the top shelf was half a container of buttermilk that I had used (coughing behind hand) last month to make some awesome buttermilk biscuits. Now, I’m not a big buttermilk fan. What I mean is that I can’t just drink a glass of it like my dad can. Nope. Won’t do it. But, I like it in things. And, I super like it in frozen treats like buttermilk ice cream. Mmmm. So, I used it to make these lemon buttermilk popsicles.
Boy am I glad I did. After enjoying a cold week (daytime highs in the 60’s – that’s cold for SoCal) last week, they were a blessing this week as the temperatures hovered near 100 each day. Crazy Southern California weather!
In fact, I enjoyed them in the car on the way to pick-up the kids from school – every day this week. They kept me nice and cool, too. These lemon buttermilk popsicles are great but you need to try the Strawberry Buttermilk Ice Cream, the Blueberry Buttermilk Ice Cream and the Vanilla Buttermilk Cupcakes, too!
These refreshing Low Carb Popsicles With Lemon & Buttermilk are 1 net carb each!
