The kids are insane about mangos. I like them, sort of. I have a bit of a strained relationship with them I suppose. I don't know, I just think they're a little weird. But mangos, plus yogurt in a freezy pop that tastes like a mango lassi? Um, yum! Plus, mangos are so incredibly good for you. They're packed with 75% of your daily vitamin C 25% of vitamin A and even a bit of iron and calcium to boot in just 1 cup of mango. Plus, they make a really pretty popsicle. 🙂 Enjoy!
This recipe is part of this week's VEGGISICLES freezer plan. So get these ingredients together if you're following along for this weekend's weekly cooking day!
Mango Lassi Pops
1 mango, peeled, chopped and pureed
2 cups yogurt or coconut milk
1/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon
1/2 cup pistachios or walnuts (optional)
Mix all ingredients except nuts and pour into popsicle molds. When partially set, sprinkle nuts on top and continue to freeze.
I got one taste of the two I froze and the kids greedily gobbled down the rest. That taste was delicious! I'll definitely be buying more popsicle molds so I can actually make 12 at a time!
