Ingredients

  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin 2 1/2 teaspoons
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 3/4 cup heavy cream preferably grass-fed
  • Zest from one orange
  • 3 tablespoons stevia/erythritol mix
  • 2 large pasture raised eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon organic vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic orange extract

Instructions

  1. Pour unflavored gelatin in 1/2 cup water. Allow gelatin to absorb water for about 5 minutes.
  2. In medium saucepan, whisk together heavy cream, orange zest, stevia/erythritol mix, and eggs.
  3. Place thermometer in cream mixture and begin heating over low heat.
  4. Whisk gelatin/water mixture into the cream mixture.
  5. Continue heating over low heat while stirring constantly.
  6. Bring temperature to 140 degrees fahrenheit and hold at that temperature for 3 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat and allow mixture to cool to about 110 degrees fahrenheit.
  8. Stir in vanilla and orange extracts.
  9. Optional step: Pour mixture in blender and blend for a few minutes. This further chops the orange zest and give the popsicles a creamy white layer as shown in the picture.
  10. If desired, strain to remove orange zest. ( I don't do this because I love the little orange bits, but some children can be picky)
  11. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for about 5 hours.
  12. To release popsicles from molds, run hot water over the mold.
