Mango popsicles are a delicious summer treat with creamy mango puree and chunks of berries and kiwi. Try my mango popsicle recipe today.
Popsicles are one of my favorite hot-weather treats. They are a great way to cool down. And, they are much healthier for you than a bowl of ice cream. Have you had a chance to try any of my other popsicle recipes? This is my favorite healthy popsicle recipe. You can add almost any fruit to it. Or, these creamy coconut popsicles are low FODMAP and have strawberries and chia seeds.
Mango Popsicle Recipe
These easy homemade ice pops are one of my favorite mango desserts in the summer. My husband is from Houston where they refer to these as mango paletas. Paletas is the Mexican word for popsicle or ice pop. Either way, it’s a delicious treat and it is loaded with Vitamin C so it’s good for you.
I really love that these fruit popsicles are so simple to make. Plus, they are vegan, contain no refined sugar, and have only a few whole food ingredients. Most of the popsicles in the store are basically just frozen sugar water with artificial colors.
One of the worst parts about cooking with mangos is peeling and cutting them. So, you can definitely use frozen mango chunks if you prefer. You should be able to find them in the freezer section of the grocery store. Or, you can start with fresh and then freeze it.
I love the Outshine Mango Popsicles but I just cannot justify the expense for 3 or 4 ice pops. This homemade popsicle recipe is just as good for a lot less money.
You will need a blender to blend the mangos. And, you will need some type of mold to make this mango popsicle recipe. You can use the electric popsicle maker that sits on the counter. Or, you can get the plastic popsicle molds you put in the freezer. You will need a total of 8 slots for this recipe.
If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can freeze these in little paper cups like these homemade pudding pops. Or, I have heard of people making them in ice cube trays.
How to make mango popsicles
These mango popsicles are basically mango, kiwi, berries, and water. If you want to leave out one of the fruits or substitute a different type, you can definitely do that. This would be just as good with raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries. Or, make a combination.
You will blend the mango and the water in your high powered blender. Then, you will add the chopped kiwi and berries to your popsicle molds. And, then pour or spoon the blended mango into the mold. Allow it to freeze and you have delicious mango popsicles.
Frequently asked questions
How long does it take mango popsicles to freeze?
It usually takes about 4 to 6 hours for them to be completely frozen. This will really depend on how large the popsicle molds are that you use.
Do I need to add sugar?
No, you don’t need to add any sugar to this recipe. Mangos are so sweet on their own that you won’t even notice you haven’t added sugar. I will say that fresh mangos are sweeter than frozen so keep that in mind when deciding what to use to make mango popsicles.
Can I add yogurt?
You can use Greek yogurt instead of water in this fruity popsicle recipe if you want them to be creamier. Just replace most or all of the water with your favorite type of Greek yogurt when you make them. Or, you can make this creamy mango popsicle with milk if you prefer. Use your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk in place of the water.
How long can I keep these in the freezer?
These mango popsicles should stay good for 6 to 8 months in the freezer. So, just be sure that you store them toward the center back of the freezer and not on the door. Otherwise, the temperature won’t remain constant.
