Low Carb Fruit Ice Lollies
- 4g of carbs
- 4 hours
- Serves 6
- 3 fruit tea bags, I used forest fruits flavour
- 300ml boiling water
- 80-100g raspberries
- 80-100g blueberries
- 2-3 tsp sweetener (optional)
- Add the fruit tea bags to the boiling water. Stir and then gently press down on each tea bag to release more flavouring. Leave to brew and cool.
- In a food processor, juicer, or blender, blend the fruit until liquidised.
- Once the tea has cooled, remove the tea bags and stir. If you would prefer a smooth ice lolly, pour the liquidised fruit through a strainer into the tea. Otherwise, pour the liquidised fruit straight into the tea. Stir until well mixed.
- Pour the liquid into the ice lolly moulds and put them in the freezer. They should be frozen within 4-6 hours and can be kept in the freezer for up to 8 months.
- When serving, you may need to pour slightly warm water on the outside of the mould to release the ice lolly as they can sometimes be difficult to get out.

Whenever I think of summer, I instantly think of cold, refreshing, and thirst-quenching fruit ice lollies. I cannot comprehend a summer without one, so I had to find a low-carb and sugar-free alternative that I enjoyed. What is lovely about these fruit ice lollies is that you’ll most likely have the ingredients sitting in your cupboards or fruit bowl. Using just fruit tea bags, berries and sweetener (which is optional!) these are a healthy alternative to the sugar-packed varieties in the supermarket. They are low in calories, low in carbs/sugar, low in fat and full of essential vitamins. They are great options for adults and kids!
I have even tried making these with flavoured green tea, and they were delicious! You can experiment with a wide variety of tea flavours and fruits. However, do be aware of the carb content of the fruits you choose. The number of carbs could quickly add up if you choose higher carb options. If you would like to know what type of low carb fruits there are, take a look at our ‘What food can diabetics eat’ article, as this includes suggestions for low-carb fruit options.
Another added benefit to these ice lollies is that they have a long shelf-life and can last in the freezer for up to 8 months. Several batches can last all summer. I know I’ll be stocking up on these!
