Dare we say that summer is here? I don’t know if we should, but I do know you should make these Mangoes and Cream Popsicles right away! This is one of the simplest recipes on the blog, and so creamy, delectable and perfect for scorching hot days. Just two simple ingredients, a blender, and popsicle molds are all you need for this refreshing treat.
Mangoes are my favorite fruit. I’m honestly surprised they don’t make more appearances here, but that’s probably because we usually just gobble them up plain as quick as we get them!
Mangoes are incredibly sweet all on their own, and using them in these popsicles means we don’t need any additional sweeteners. Score! Mangoes are also a good source of fiber, and high in vitamins A and C.
Lite Coconut Milk
Coconut milk is perfect for this recipe. It’s light, creamy, coconuty flavor complements mango exactly the way you love!
Now don’t get me wrong, coconut milk isn’t something you often see here. And that’s because it contains quite high amounts of saturated fat (which is known to contribute to high cholesterol). However, in small amounts, like these popsicles, it’s no problem. Each popsicle contains only 3 grams of saturated fat. On a 2000 calorie diet, most people can safely consume up to 22 grams of saturated fat a day (that’s about 10% of calories) without running the risk of raising cholesterol. Divine!
How to Make Mangoes and Cream Popsicles
Use a high speed blender, regular blender, or food processor. Add the ingredients to it. Puree on high until the mixture is smooth. If you over-blend, it may start to become thick and lumpy. It’s okay if it does; just know that may happen. It will still be yummy!
Taste the mixture. If you think it needs more sweetness, it’s okay to add a sweetener. If your mango isn’t that ripe, you may find it needs a little boost! Whatever you like – honey, maple syrup or table sugar. A liquid sweetener would be best. It will blend into the mixture easier and won’t be gritty.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, and insert the sticks. This made 8 popsicles using the molds I have. Pop them in the freezer for an hour or two, and enjoy!
