Low-Carb Popsicles

I made mine with a small pkt of sugar free Lemon Jello, a cup of store-brand diet ginger ale, (because it was leftover from last night and I probably wouldn't drink it in time to keep the bubbles), 2 cups of diet V-8 Fruit (Berry) Punch and 2 pkts of Splenda.

I chose to heat the ginger ale because it was already room temp. You can heat a cup of fruit punch if your soda is cold.  I poured this into a bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir very well, add 2 cups fruit punch and stir some more.  I tasted the liquid to make sure it was sweet enough.  Yes, it was.

This 3 cup mixture fills 6 big rectangular 4-oz popsicle molds.  Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.

Splenda, Jello and Diet Ginger Ale all contain zero carbs. Diet V-8 Fruit Punch (Berry) is 2 carbs per 8 oz, I used 16 oz, which is 4 carbs, Each popsicle contains .66 carb.

I have Tavoli rectangular popsicle molds, 4 oz each.  Below is a picture from the Tavoli website. My popsicles will be paler than the center picture, which is probably straight Welch's Grape Juice, which would be a billion carbs, don't even consider that!
