Mango pops. These two words just feel happy together… and even happier between a couple of cute little fat asterisks. To be honest, I’ve been in a slight bit of a funk lately, but as I sit here to write this post, I’m realizing that there are so many things to be happy about. I don’t want to turn this into a big “be grateful for your life” post (although, be grateful for your life, it’s a good thing). But maybe take a second to think about the tiny things that make your world go ’round. For example mine, right at this moment are: the color yellow, words with o’s in them, asterisks, things that are mini,┬ámelty foods on hot summer days… raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens… you get the idea.

And now onto the food. It’s happy food. I mean, how can you talk about mangoes and not be happy? These pops are super simple with just mango, lime juice and a touch of coconut milk. I had a few pinches of sugar ready, but mangoes are so sweet just as they are that I didn’t end up adding it.

  6. I am allergic to mango but these look gorgeous! Where did you get those cute mini popsicle sticks?

    • jeanine from loveandlemons.com on said:

      oh so sad :). I got them on amazon (had to get a box of 100, so I guess we’ll be eating a lot of popsicles this summer!)

    Made these for a dinner party last night, they turned out really great! I added diced pineapple mint leaves, they made a great addition.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    This is the third ice cream/frozen treat I’ve read in a row this morning, they’re killing me! Love the mango-lime combo, definitely something that makes me happy :)

    • jeanine from loveandlemons.com on said:

      ha, thanks Gina :)

  11. These are gorgeous! And love that they don’t require any fancy equipment or “molds”, other than small little cups. These would be perfect for a big get together or dinner party outside.

    • jeanine from loveandlemons.com on said:

      Thanks Laura, I figure everyone doesn’t have extra cabinet space for the oh-so-necessary popsicle molds :)

  13. I would be hard pressed to be sad too if I had some of those to eat. So vibrant and cheerful and delicious, I bet!
