Coconut Mango Popsicles
Wednesday, 29 July 2015
Who doesn’t love Popsicles on a hot day? These are my 3 year old’s favorite treat right now. I started making these when I was working with kids at a summer camp. Then I got a Norpro Ice Pop Maker and now I make a batch at home every week. Sometimes I make my daughter Popsicles with yogurt and berries but for something dairy-free, I use coconut milk. Not the lite coconut milk, but the full-fat version (coconut oil is good for you!) makes them creamy and rich. Blend it up with some mango and a banana for a tropical treat.
1 can coconut milk (Native Forest brand, if possible)
2 fresh mangoes or an 8-10 oz bag frozen mango chunks
1 large banana
Remove the flesh from the mangoes* (if using fresh) and blend it up with the banana and coconut milk in your blender until smooth. Pour into your Popsicle mold, add sticks and put it in the freezer for at least 3 hours. A refreshing and satisfying sweet treat with no added sugar (other than the natural fruit sugar) that only has 3 wholesome ingredients. So easy to make, and kids love it. You can’t beat that!
