Mango Lime Pops

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,Β melty 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.

mango lime pops

Serves: makes approx. 8-9 3oz. pops, depending on the size of your mangoes
  • 2 ripe mangoes, chopped
  • 2 limes, juiced (or about ¼ cup fresh lime juice)
  • ¼ cup light coconut milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 9 plastic 3 oz. cups or popsicle molds
  • small wooden craft sticks
  1. In a high speed blender, puree all ingredients. Taste and adjust, adding more lime or a pinch of sugar if you like.
  2. Pour into plastic cups or popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours. After the first 2 hours, place the sticks into the partially frozen pops.

This is recipe #4 of 5 that I created for the Mango Board.

  5. 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.

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

    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!

      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!)
