Mango Coconut Cream Popsicles

I was on a homemade popsicle kick last week, I got excited with all the good bargains on the fruits and produce aisle . I made about 3 different kinds of homemade and easy popsicles ( that of course I will be sharing to all of you). The inspiration to "mass produce" these homemade popsicles was inspired by our tiny taste testers at home -- our popsicle obsessed little girls.

These Mango Coconut Cream popsicles are just perfect for this summer heat. The tropical taste is a nice break from the usual chocolate popsicles. You can use fresh mangoes or frozen .Our youngest daughter loves mangoes! We tried a jar of preserved mangoes that we bought at Costco, she fell in love with it. I told her that she will love the fresh fruit . Fresh is always better anyway. Sure enough, it is her favorite desert. Luckily, they are on sale lately..5 for $2.00 ?!! I will take that!







Ingredients:

2 1/2 cup of diced mangoes ( fresh or frozen) - about 3 mangoes if using fresh.
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp sugar ( can use honey)
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp low fat yogurt


Directions:

If using fresh mangoes, diced about 3 mangoes.


Blend the pineapple juice and the mango, until smooth.



It will be smooth and thick. Set aside.



Meanwhile , prepare all your ingredients for the coconut cream.  Blend it all together, just a quick pulse.



Pour your mango puree into your popsicle molds and freeze for about 10 to 15 minutes. When it is somewhat solid, pour your second puree , which is the coconut cream. Freeze again for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat the process .



Creamy and sweet!

  1. Mmmmm, these look great! I love making homemade popsicles, too. Isn't it so fun?? I'll have to tweak this recipe a little (allergic to mango & pineapple), but I bet peaches would be yummy! :)

  11. Yes, this recipe is simple and tasty especially for children but I cannot cook it because my child has a mango allergy. I thought that it's a huge problem but after reading http://stopallergyguide.com/mango-allergy/ I understood that it's not :)
