Does this summer’s heat leave you craving for a refreshing snack? How about a tropical twist on a favorite summer staple?
Try this easy recipe for a healthy, sweet, frozen treat.
Makes 6 popsicles
•6 popsicle molds or small paper cups
•6 popsicle sticks
•1 ½ cups of mango puree
(I used fresh mango, peeled, pitted, chopped then pureed, but frozen mango that is thawed, then pureed will work just as well)
•1 ½ cups of pineapple puree
(I used fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, chopped, then pureed, but frozen pineapple that is thawed, then pureed will work just as well)
•1 cup coconut milk, mostly the top cream
•¼ cup sugar
•2 tsp. lemon juice
1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Using a funnel, pour combined ingredients into each popsicle mold or cup.
3a. If using popsicle molds, add top and popsicle sticks, the place in freezer.
3b. If using cups, cover each cup with plastic wrap; make a small slit to insert sticks, then place in freezer.
4. Popsicles should be frozen solid in 4-6 hours.
5. Remove pops by gently tugging on stick. If they don’t come out easily, you can either run water on the outside of the mold or carefully run a dull knife around the inside edge of the mold.
Time to enjoy the tropical fruits of your labor with this refreshing treat.
