I initially ordered these popsicle molds in order to “trick” my toddler into eating more fruit because she was obsesses with popsicles. It didn’t help that big brother always eats popsicles in front of her. So I started making popsicles with fresh fruit and it totally worked! I highly recommend this method for adults and kids to consume more fruit!
Luckily the mangoes were in season and fresh. That’s why I decided to use them to make these juicy frozen fruit pops. I adore the flavor combination of coconut and mango. It reminds me of mango sticky rice which I absolutely love as well.
Today my kids and I took our popsicles in the backyard and played hide and seek! I’m the only one who can hide well! These two kiddos can’t hide to save their lives!
Another reason I love these mango popsicles is because they are so easy to make. You only need 3 simple ingredients to make them. All you need is 2 large mangoes, 1/4 cup canned coconut milk, and 1 tbsp stevia or sweetener of your choice.
Make sure your mangoes are juicy and ripe for optimum flavor! Also mangoes are super hard to remove from the peel and seed if they are not ripe yet. Another important tip for these mango coconut popsicles is to use full fat coconut milk from the can.
It makes a big difference when it comes to creaminess, texture and flavor. Yes lite coconut milk has half the calories however you only need 1/4 cup so it’s not a drastic amount of calories.
The directions for mango coconut popsicles are super simple also! Cut 2 large mangoes into slices or chunks Combine all the ingredients in a large food processor or blender. Blend until thoroughly combined.
Pour the blended mango purée into your popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. I love tricking my kids into eating fresh healthy fruit when they think it’s a just a regular popsicle!
