Fancy a refreshing treat? These 3-ingredient mango lassi popsicles 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 popsicles. 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 lassi popsicles
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 molds, 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!!!)
What are the best mangoes for these popsicles?
Now, l’m no expert in mangoes, but l know there are different varieties out there, with slightly different flavour and texture. In my local supermarkets, l can find throughout the year those mangoes with green and red skin, which are pretty large. They don’t always taste great, not quite sure when they are in season.
However, in summer time, l can find a different variety at a local corner shop that sells fresh fruit and vegetables, these ones are a lot smaller, and the skin is yellow. They are a lot pricier, but also sweeter. They really taste great. l hear people say they are Indian mangoes. They really are the best.
However, if you can’t find these mangos l’m talking about, any variety of mango would do. But as l said, it has to be fully ripen. They are great in any summer dessert, or smoothies. I’ve got this delicious Mango and banana smoothie which you’d also love. Bring on the mangoes!
