These coconut mango popsicles are refreshing, tasty, and perfect for a healthy summer treat. They’re also a fun activity to do in the kitchen with your little ones. They are easy to make. The only downside is waiting for them to freeze to enjoy them:)
The popsicles are dairy-free. They are made with full-fat canned coconut milk. The milk is blended with mangoes, sweetener and pink salt. It’s truly delicious. I really like how they don’t contain any dairy. It’s truly a guilt-free treat. I used local honey as I find it pairs beautifully with mangoes and I love the health properties of honey but if you are vegan, feel free to use coconut nectar or pure maple syrup.
There are many kinds of popsicle molds out there. Just use what you have or find something in your local cooking store or even online on website like amazon.com. Zoku is a great brand if you can find it. You can get regular popsicle shapes or fun shapes which can be fun for kids. There are so many. So obviously the size of your popsicle molds will affect the quantity of popsicles you will get.
Once you fill the molds with the coconut mango filling, leave some space at the top. That space will be filled with coconut yogurt so you end up with somehow two layers of yumminess. If you really want to make them perfect, fill the first part first to get perfect layers or if you’re always in the rush like me, just slowly add the yogurt with a spoon and freeze everything at once. The brand SoDelicious has great, affordable coconut yogurt. Cocoyo is even better and is my favorite but is not easy to find and I prefer to eat that incredible yogurt on its own.
If you like popsicles, you may also check out this strawberry yogurt popsicle. It’s also delicious but does contain regular, plain, full fat, but organic yogurt.
What’s your favorite combination of flavours for popsicles? I hope you enjoy this recipe.
And in case you are wondering, those are thumbs, not toes, haha! I took them for my little thumb sucker boy:)
Coconut Mango Popsicles
These healthy popsicles are made with coconut milk, mango, local honey and coconut yogurt. They are delicious and easy to make. If vegan, replace honey with coconut nectar or maple syrup.
- 1 can full-fat coconut milk
- 2 cups diced mangoes, fresh or frozen
- 2 tablespoons local honey, coconut nectar or maple syrup
- Pinch pink salt
- Coconut yogurt, plain or vanilla
In a high-speed blender, blend coconut milk, mango, honey and salt until smooth.
Divide between popsicle molds, leaving some space at the top to add coconut yogurt.
Slowly add coconut yogurt to fill the space with a spoon. If you want a perfect layer, freeze the first part before adding the yogurt. Otherwise, just slowly add it.
Add the stick to each popsicle and freeze until set.
The amount of popsicles will depend on the size of your popsicle molds.
