Homemade Mango Popsicles are easy to make with just three ingredients. They’re made with yogurt for a healthier twist and you can use fresh mango or frozen mango. They’re a creamy sweet treat for a hot day.
I had all these baking ideas planned for this weekend. They basically went out the window with the heat wave we had. I spent most of the weekend trying to stay cool, eating lots of fruit, ice pops, ice cream, and making ice pops.
I enjoy making homemade popsicles because I know what’s in them and they’re usually very easy to make. Plus, you can make any flavor you like.
These mango ice pops came out great. I originally wanted to make them with heavy cream or milk, so it would be similar to a mango ice cream, but at the last minute I decided to use yogurt instead, making these both delicious and healthy but with a creamy texture.
- Mango chunks
- Plain Greek yogurt
- Sugar (optional)
I used fresh champagne mangoes because they tend to be sweeter and have less fiber. All you do is cut them up into chunks. You can use the same amount of frozen mango, too.
I like to use nonfat yogurt to make these, but you can use whole milk yogurt. Greek yogurt works best because it’s thicker and creamier.
The sugar is optional and really depends on your tastes. It depends on the sweetness of your mango – you may not need to add any additional sweetener.
How to Make Mango Popsicles
You can use a food processor or blender. Just blend all of the ingredients until smooth and then pour the mixture into a popsicle mold.
Secure the popsicle sticks and place the molds in the freezer. Freeze the ice pops for at least several hours or overnight.
Mr. K and I both enjoyed this mango popsicle recipe and finished off most of them in one afternoon.
