Mango and Yoghurt Ice Pops

This Mango and Yoghurt Ice Pops recipe is a family favourite! Use coconut yoghurt for a dairy-free version.

Eventhough we’ve had an extra day of Summer this year, 2012 being a leap year and all, the weather hasn’t been very kind to us. It’s been rainy and sometimes outright cold… until about last week when it finally warmed up for a day and started to pour again.

Nevertheless, the little rays of sunshine we were blessed with yesterday and a few more peeking through the clouds today have reminded me to make the most of the season’s mangoes. Considering our pot luck with the weather, and the inevitable end to the plentiful supply of ripe, juicy mangoes as the seasons change, mango and yoghurt ice pops sounded like the right idea.

Healthier than their ice cream counterparts they are low in fat and have no added sugar. To spice them up a little, I have added some coconut milk and ground cinnamon.

Delicious! Such a great tasting combination, and it looks gorgeous too. I’ve got a set of ice block moulds that I haven’t taken out of the box yet. You’ve inspired me! :D

Oh, a breath of summer in a pop. Yum. I really wish we didn’t have snow right now, or this would be perfect.

Dear Martyna,

Your ice pops looks refreshingly delicious. Although the lime leaves have beautiful flavours, they are one of the most expensive ingredients around :(

Wholesome Cook March 8, 2012 at 11:47 am

I should have probably mentioned they came from my friend’s kaffir lime tree…

Erika March 8, 2012 at 12:19 pm

I am horribly allergic to coconut but I love love mango. Any suggestions on what could substitute?

Wholesome Cook March 8, 2012 at 2:00 pm

You coud add some honey and pure cream instead, probably 2 tbsp honey plus make up the volume with cream.

filingawaycupcakes March 8, 2012 at 1:12 pm

These are lovely and I LOVE mango!

Maureen March 8, 2012 at 1:17 pm

I want to make these. I’ve got all the ingredients – I made yoghurt yesterday and I have frozen mango cheeks. I love frozen pops! Tough to type while eating one but I manage. :)

sara (Belly Rumbles) March 8, 2012 at 2:12 pm

They sound delicious, love the addition of the coconut milk.

Anna @ the shady pine March 8, 2012 at 7:49 pm

These look gorgeous….I woul love to bring out a platter of them at party on a hot day out on he deck!

Bam's Kitchen March 9, 2012 at 8:23 pm

How refreshing sitting out on the deck with cool wind on your face and a cold lolly. Life is good.

do you recommend a specific ice pop mold?

Martyna @ Wholesome Cook May 11, 2012 at 5:57 am

Hi Katie, no as you can see from the photos they work with many types of moulds. Just go with what you have or your personal preference.
