Rich Chocolate Yogurt Pops (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Rich Chocolate Yogurt Pops
1/2 cup whipping cream**
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup powdered erythritol
3.5 oz high % cacao (85% or higher) chocolate, finely chopped
18 oz Greek yogurt
25 drops stevia extract
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine whipping cream, cocoa powder and powdered erythritol, whisking until smooth. Heat through but do not bring to a simmer. Add chopped chocolate and allow to sit 2 minutes, until melted, then whisk until smooth.

**Depending on the chocolate you use, it may seize when added to the hot cream. All you need to do is increase the heat a bit, and add more cream, one tablespoon at a time, whisking vigorously until it smooths out.

In a medium bowl, combine Greek yogurt, stevia and vanilla extracts. Stir in chocolate mixture until well combined. Spoon or pipe into popsicle molds, add sticks and freeze until solid, at least 2 hours.

Alternatively, you can refrigerate the mixture for an hour or two and then churn it in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions.

Makes 12 small-sized popsicles. Each popsicle has 4.9 g of carbs and 1.2 g of fiber. Total NET CARBS = 3.7 g.

For frozen yogurt, it makes about 6 servings. So double the amounts above for total carbs.
