It’s just about summertime! It seems to have already arrived in Chicagoland! Definitely time for popsicles. These are just one variation. There are obviously endless options.
- 1 cup coconut milk either canned or fresh
- 1 1/2 cups fresh sliced mango
- 1 to 2 tbs honey
- up to 1/3 cup water
You will need a good blender and popsicle molds. I found my molds at Bed Bath and Beyond
Add coconut milk and mango to the blender and blend on high for a couple of minutes. Check for taste. If it is sweet enough for you then leave out the honey. My kids tasted and want it a little sweeter. I ended up adding a heaping tbs of honey. The mixture will be pretty thick so you may want to add just enough water to make it easier to pour out of the blender but not enough to dilute the taste. Once you add the honey or other paleo sweetener and water blend on high again to incorporate well. Check again for consistency and taste. It will be thick but as long as you can pour it out, it should be just fine and freeze up nice and creamy.
Carefully pour the mixture into your molds and insert handles. If you don’t have molds try ice cube trays. If you are using ice cube trays fill each tray, then cover tightly with plastic wrap and poke a toothpick into each cube.
Place in the freezer and freeze for several hours. I froze mine overnight. In order to remove the pop from the mold, I had to run the mold under a bit of warm water to wiggle the pop out of the mold. It was a bit of a struggle but well worth it. Mia says, “Yum!” Like a mango version of a dreamsicle. The perfect treat after a soccer game in the heat.
