Summer has hit and is in full swing here at the Tiny Prints offices—a fact that leaves us longing for cool, refreshing and healthy treats each afternoon. If your family is anything like the Tiny Prints family, you’ll love these honey mango DIY popsicles—they are quick, fun to make and far too healthy to taste this delicious!
Check out the original recipe on Sea Salt with Food, or gather the kids in the kitchen and get started whipping up some fruit and honey summer popsicles of your own!
- 2 cups chopped mango
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Blender (we used an immersion blender, which has quickly become one of my favorite kitchen tools of all time!)
- Cutting board and knife (for the parents’ use only)
- Popsicle molds
Step 1: Chop the Mango
This is definitely a job for grownups or teenage children. Small, bite-sized chunks will make blending easier.
Step 2: Add Orange Juice and Honey
The natural sweetness of the honey allows you to sweeten up the popsicles without adding any sugar.
Step 3: Blend and Pour into Molds
Blend the ingredients well to ensure that everything freezes together. Then carefully fill each slot in your popsicle molds to the top and attach the lids. If there’s extra space, the popsicles might not stick to the base!
Step 4: Freeze Overnight and Enjoy!
Because our molds had deep pockets near the base, we froze the popsicles upside down to ensure that the mango mixture would sink down onto the base. We frozen them overnight, but the original recipe at Sea Salt with Food says you can enjoy them after only four hours in the freezer too!
