Mango Coconut Popsicles

Mango Coconut Popsicles healthy easy summer recipe

Now that mangoes are here, every day is a mango day!  While nothing beats eating a mango straight up, they are a wonderful addition to so many foods- sweet and savoury. The soaring mercury levels just beg for frozen treats all the time.  And mangoes just lend themselves beautifully to all these desserts.  They add distinct aroma, sweetness, and creaminess to everything you put them in, like these Mango Coconut Popsicles!  And that gorgeous bright yellow sunshine colour is an instant cheer me up!

I like to keep my freezer stocked with homemade popsicles, frozen yogurts, and occasionally ice creams.  Kids( err…me too!) want an icy popsicle or two every day and so I try to keep healthier options available to them.  How they love these!  It’s so exciting for them to check the freezer every couple of days to check what I’ve got in there.  And popsicle unmolding is such an event in our house!

Come summer and the markets are flooded with fabulous fruit; so sweet and flavorful. Cherries, apricots, peaches, plums, watermelons….I’m already dreaming of all the flavour combinations I want to make. The good part about using fruits in your popsicles is that you can easily cut down on the sugar and let the natural sweetness of the fruit come to fore.  Adding mild subtly sweet coconut milk further enhances the flavours.

These popsicles are slightly sweetened with honey. You could certainly substitute it with sugar or maple syrup and add as much as you like. You can add more mango, use full-fat coconut milk …whatever floats your boat! But do give this a try, it’s a guilt-free frozen pleasure, you could also have for breakfast…just sayin’!!
