Homemade Mango Popsicles

Finding ripe mangos in the supermarket is such a lovely treat. You can enjoy them raw as a healthy snack, blend them into smoothies, add them as a topping to chia pudding, or incorporate them into healthy desserts. Mangos are incredibly versatile and go great with a variety of flavors. They provide a tropical sweetness that can refresh you on a hot day, making them a great fruit for summer.

Summertime is the best time to make homemade popsicles. Just make sure that you enjoy them quickly before all of that deliciously frozen mango starts melting onto your hands. Unlike traditional popsicles that you buy in the store, these mango popsicles don’t freeze in the same way. That is because of the sugar! Natural sugars don’t necessarily freeze the same way as high fructose corn syrup and other processed sugars, which are typically in store bought popsicles. This recipe calls for maple syrup, but you can use raw agave nectar as a direct swap if you have it on hand.

For this recipes, you will need six cups of mango chunks. If fresh mangos are not readily available for you, you can use frozen mangos, provided they do not have added sugars or preservatives. That is a great cleansing hack for smoothies or other recipes that require frozen fruit! Lastly, if you have silicone popsicle molds, use them because the popsicles come out much more easily than they do from plastic molds.
