Low-Carb White Chocolate Raspberry Popsicles

Serves 10

Use coconut milk as the base for popsicles, and they’ll come out creamy and full of flavor. And this recipe uses cocoa butter – essentially unsweetened white chocolate – for an even richer dessert.

These low-carb popsicles use raspberries, which works well with the white chocolate flavor, but you could use other fruit too like mangos or blueberries.

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.
