These mango pineapple popsicles are the healthy answer to “What’s for dessert?” The cool and refreshing tropical taste is the perfect way to enjoy a sweet summer treat without all the extra sugar that comes along with most other goodies that are this delicious.
I’m in love with my popsicle mold. Not only is it great for making healthy treats, but you can freeze leftover juices and smoothies when you accidentally make too much — which for me is all. the. time! Most of all, I love that you can puree fruit and veggies that are about to go bad and extend their shelf life by turning them into delicious frozen treats.
This recipe was a product of me going overboard buying mangos. I was so excited they were less than a dollar a piece, but I definitely bought to many. It became the perfect opportunity for fresh mango popsicles.
Note: My popsicle mold holds about 3 cups of juice, so you may have to adjust the recipe a bit depending on the capacity of your own mold, but this should get you close.
