4 Ingredient Mango Popsicles
These popsicles are so simple with just 4 ingredients you can make these plant based Mango Popsicles at home in a few hours. They are a fresh, fruity, deliciously cooling vegan recipe for the summer.
I love mangoes. However it is important for me to say, I love Alphonso mangoes. They are my favourite the of mango. Hence when they are in season I absolutely enjoy devouring them but I also enjoy cooking and baking with them. The flavor is so strong but in the best way possible. This is my simple mango popsicle recipe that I LOVE and has become a tradition in my home every year during the season.
These popsicles happen to dairy free, I didn’t plan on it. The coconut milk here works well with the mango puree. You could use say cream or almond milk as well but you need a little fatty milk/cream to make the popsicles. This ensures they do not become hard like ice crystals once frozen.
What ingredients do you need to make these mango popsicles?
You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this recipe. A little goes a long way. I have used alphonso mangos but you can use any mango you have access to. The recipe calls for coconut milk (full fat) including the cream. Ideally you can stop here and it will be delicious. But I like adding a little squeeze of lime juice and a pinch of salt. Both of these ingredients enhance the mango flavor 10 fold. You could use lemon juice as well. I like drizzling the top with vegan white chocolate but that is optional.
What equipment do you need to make these mango popsicles?
I have used a blender to make this recipe you can use a food processor, smoothie blender to any hand blended to puree the ingredients together. To set the popsicles I have used popsicle moulds with throw away wooden sticks. To pipe the white chocolate I have used the corner of a zip lock bag that is cut at the edge.
How to make these mango popsicles?
In a blender add the mango flesh (pulp and chunks), coconut milk and blend until smooth. Add the lime juice and salt, blend once more. Pour into popsicle moulds and insert the sticks into the moulds. Transfer to the freezer and let it set for 6 hours or overnight. Remove from the freezer and pop out of the moulds.
If they have no set, allow them to freeze longer in the freezer. Depending on the size of your freezer and capacity they might take longer to freeze. Also if they don’t pop out of the mould easily warm the side of the mould with your palms for a minute, the heat will help loosen the popsicle from the mould and it should come out. Alternatively dip half the popsicle mould into hot water – be careful not to burn your hand or to let the water touch the popsicle itself. I love using silicon moulds as they come out easily.
How to serve and store these mango popsicles?
You could dunk them in melted white chocolate or drizzle with white chocolate. I have serve them with freshly grated lime zest on top too. A little paprika powder on top is amazing, a follower from tiktok got me hooked on doing this! I love it! Once they are ready to eat you can leave them in the freezer for up to 1 month. Make sure they are stored in air tight zip lock bags to ensure they hold their flavor and freshness.
