Fancy a refreshing treat? These 3-ingredient Mango Ice Lollies are not only so very yummy, but also healthy. With silky Greek yogurt, milk and delicious mango pulp with no refined sugar added, they surely will become your guilt-free new favourite ice lollies. Baby and toddler friendly too.
If you like the classic mango lassi drink, you will love these popsicles, even more because, unlike the aforementioned drink, these ice lollies do not have any refined sugar added. Sounds too good to be true? Well, it's not.
You only need 3 simple ingredients: mango, yogurt and milk, and you get a superbly refreshing dessert that will be a big hit not only with the little ones (very little ones included), but also with the grown-ups.
The secret to making the best, sweetest, tastiest, etc mango popsicles is using ripe mangoes. Yes, they might be around all year round, but if they are not in season, chances are they taste like rubbish. So I do not recommend those.
But come summer, and we have a different story, juicy, sweet mangoes that are a real treat every single time. The amount of sweet or savoury recipes you can make using mangoes is pretty much endless, so their price is well worth it.
How to make mango ice lollies
Homemade, yummy scrummy, easy to make, and even easier to demolish. Totally kid-friendly popsicles, by the way. Another bonus point.
No need for sugar, you just need to make sure the mangoes are perfectly ripen and juicy. Or if you happen to find canned mango pulp, that's good too.
All you need to do is combine all the ingredients together, pour the mixture onto the popsicle moulds, and job done! The Greek yogurt is creamy and perfectly silky, I prefer using this, but if you have normal plain yogurt, that should do too.
If you make these popsicles for babies and toddlers, make sure you use full-fat dairy products! Little ones need the good kind of fat (plus it tastes better!!!)
Homemade ice lollies are absolutely delicious, not to mention a lot healthier too. No need to buy the shop-bought ones that are full of dodgy ingredients.
While I am not unreasonable, I like to feed my girls food that is healthy without compromising on taste. And if you make something yourself, and better, why not do it?
Mango is absolutely delicious, but you can use any other fruit that you have around: berries of any kind, peaches, apricots, papaya, you name it! Love mangoes? How about my Mango Ice Cream Recipe that has a deliciously creamy texture and amazing taste?
