Whenever I eat Ice Popsicles, I instantly think of my grandpa, who’d use to buy these for us when we use to visit him in summer. A thought of this bring a smile on my face.
Same with mangoes Like when I eat first mangoes of the season, I instantly think of my uncle’s house where in backyard we use to spend whole afternoon eating mangoes one after another. I know I’ve so much memories associated with summer. I love summer besides the fact that it really gets unbearable because of scorching heat.
To me summer without popsicle not happening. I love to eat these pretty ice pops and if its homemade then you can control the quality of ingredients. As with anything homemade,you know what goes into your food and can customize it to suit your liking.
This popsicle recipe is so simple with just 3-4 ingredients and you can enjoy making these with your kids. I love the bright color of these pops and I can guarantee you this, it taste so good and delicious! That you can’t limit yourself to just one. Coming back to the recipe, which is just grind, mix and freeze. Couldn’t get simpler than this!
- 1 big mango, skinned removed and chopped
- 1 1/2 cup pineapple juice, adjust the amount of juice according to your mixture, you need thin consistency..it gets little thicker because of the mango flesh.
- 2 tbsp good quality honey
- 1 teaspoon of lime juice
- a pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
- Combine the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
- Place ½ tablespoon of pomegranate seeds in the bottom of your popsicle molds. Press the seeds lightly and fill to the top with mango-pineapple mixture. Insert sticks and freeze until solid, preferably overnight.
- To remove the popsicle from the mold, just run warm water around the mold and pull on the sticks to remove the pops. OR else Let the mold stand at room temperature for about 2-3 minutes and pull the sticks to unmold.
- If using wooden ice pop sticks, soak sticks for 30 minutes in warm water before inserting into pops, this helps keep them from floating up when inserted into molds.
- Taste for sweetness and add more honey if necessary (it should be too sweet as it will lose sweetness after freezing.)
