Recipe ReDux: Mango Coconut Pops!

This month’s Recipe Redux theme was Frozen Desserts and I immediately thought of fruity creamsicles. Popsicles are one of those foods that I rarely eat but always enjoy. They are just so fun! I looked everywhere for popsicle molds and finally found these at Bed Bath and Beyond. They have a little straw at the bottom so when the juice melts, you don’t miss a drop!

Mangoes are one of my favorite summer fruits and these tropical pops are really refreshing and simple to make. Plus, I got them for $0.25 each a few weeks ago at Raleys. Such a steal! Enjoy this while they are still in ‘season.’

Mango Coconut Popsicles


2 mangoes, cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups light coconut milk
2 tbsp. liquid sweetner, like light agave syrup
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine all the ingredients in a blender. If it’s too thick, add a bit more coconut milk. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.

Now check out what my other creative colleagues came up with!
