Come summer time, my oldest son loves popsicles for snacks! There are a few varieties that I will buy occasionally, but it’s not my first choice. Rather than buying popsicles that might be loaded with a ton of added sugar, and other questionable ingredients, we like to make our own.
Making popsicle recipes doesn’t have to be complicated. His favorite variety to this day is frozen apple juice popsicles! Just pour apple juice into popsicle molds and freeze!
But, I like to shake things up a bit more. Since he’s been on a mango-kick lately, I decided to make this easy recipe for Mango Coconut Popsicles.
These popsicles take anywhere from 3-5 ingredients, depending on how ripe the mangos are that you are using. And, there are two different ways to enjoy them! You can layer the flavors, or blend them together!
Mango Coconut Popsicles
Cut the mango into chunks that you can fit into your blender. I can never remember how to properly cut a mango, so I love this mango cutting tool! It makes it so much easier!
Puree the mango in your blender until it’s super smooth. Taste and adjust the flavor, if needed. If the mango is less ripe and more sour, add a little honey and blend to taste. For mango that’s overly ripe and too sweet, you can add lime juice a little at a time to balance the flavor out.
If you are layering the flavors, you’ll want to transfer the mango to a bowl and clean out the blender.
To make layered popsicles, pour some of the mango puree into the popsicles molds, then a little of the coconut, repeat this process, creating as many layers as you can fit.
For blended popsicles, pour the mixture into the popsicles molds.
Freeze until solid. The time it takes to freeze will vary on the size molds you use and the temperature of your freezer. Mine took 1-2 hours.
