Why this recipe works
Mangoes are a great fruit for homemade popsicles. They’re naturally sweet and have a creamy texture, plus they’re delicious!
So I love to blend fresh or frozen mango (thawed, if frozen) with just a few ingredients to create cool, creamy fruit pops.
I add yogurt for extra creaminess and a bit of tang.
A little bit of lime juice adds a bright, fresh flavor.
And a touch of honey balances the yogurt and lime.
And depending on the yogurt you use, these can be dairy-free, Paleo and/or vegan mango popsicles.
Plus mangoes are naturally healthy, full of vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber and more.
So these creamy mango fruit popsicles are an easy, fun and healthy treat!
What you need
- 1.5 cups cubed fresh or frozen mango (thawed, if frozen)
- 3 tablespoons plain yogurt
- I particularly like Harmless Harvest for a dairy-free/vegan/Paleo option
- 1 tablespoon honey (or pure maple syrup for vegan)
- 1.5 teaspoons lime juice
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- water, if necessary
- popsicle molds
- a blender (<– I like this one because it’s almost as powerful as a Vitamix for half the cost)
- measuring spoons
- measuring cups
How to make Mango Popsicles
Add the mango, yogurt, honey, lime juice and salt to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
If the mixture is too thick, blend in water, about 1 tablespoon at a time, for your desired consistency.
Pour into popsicles molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.
Can I make substitutions?
- You can use plain Greek-style yogurt instead of regular yogurt. Again, use dairy-free, vegan and/or Paleo Greek-style yogurt if necessary.
- You can use pure maple syrup in place of the honey.
- You can use lemon juice in place of the lime juice.
- You can add a pinch of cayenne powder if you want spicy mango popsicles.
How long do popsicles take to freeze?
It depends on the temperature of your freezer, how full it is, the size of your popsicle molds and the ingredients in your popsicles.
On average, allow for at least 4 hours to freeze popsicles. To be safe, make popsicles at least a day in advance and freeze them overnight.
How long do popsicles last in the freezer?
If stored in an airtight container, most popsicles are good for least 6 months in the freezer.
This may change depending on your freezer and the ingredients in your popsicles.
Do popsicles have gluten?
It depends on the flavor. If they’re entirely fruit-based or are basic flavors like chocolate or vanilla, they usually don’t have gluten.
But always check the ingredients, especially if the popsicles have additional ingredients mixed in, such as cookies, or if they have additional ingredients sprinkled on the outside.
