What is a keto fudgesicle made of?
A fudgsicle is a frozen dessert on a stick that is made with chocolate and cream! These can be made with either chocolate that is milk or dark. Most commonly you'll find fudge pops are made with milk chocolate. The summertime is when they are the most popular, but you can enjoy these treats any time of the year.
What is the history of fudgesicles?
In 1905, Frank Epperson invented the first ice pop when he was just 11 years old! He poured soda powder into water and mixed it with a stirring stick, and found that his drink had frozen like an icicle after leaving the mixture outside all night in the cold. It was completely an accident, which is a crazy and cool fun fact. He then went on to make all kinds of flavors and variations: from the double-stick popsicle invented in the Great Depression so you could split off a stick to give a friend to the iconic fudgsicle made with creamy chocolate instead of fruit flavored ice.
What’s the difference between popsicles and fudgesicles?
The difference between popsicles and fudgesicles is pretty simple. Popsicles are ice cream or water ice on a small wooden stick, while fudgesicles are frozen chocolate and cream frozen desserts. That means that while fudgesicles are considered to be a type of popsicle, not all popsicles are fudgesicles–funny, right?
Are there sugar free Fudgesicles?
The Original Fudge Pops made by the Popsicle™ brand have no added sugar, but not zero sugar. They also use artificial sweeteners to reduce the sugar, adding in sugar alcohols and stuff like aspartame which is not keto friendly. That means that while it may be low in sugar, making a keto fudgesicle at home is the only way to truly have a sugar free fudgesicle.
Will sugar free fudgesicles raise blood sugar?
Sugar free fudgesicles do raise blood sugar. That is because they are not truly low glycemic due to the sweeteners added that are artificial. Breyer’s CarbSmart™ Fudge Pops use maltitol and have a high sugar alcohol carb count while no sugar added fudgesicles contain sugar still. This recipe is the best way to not raise blood sugar since it doesn’t contain artificial sweetener. Some artificial sweeteners can cause stomach issues, which can make enjoying them much more difficult.
