I think this is going to be the summer of popsicles for me. It might have something to do with the Florida humidity, or at least that’s my excuse. The latest batch I made are these Coconut Mango Lime Popsicles and I just can’t get enough of them!
We ate up all the Fruit Smoothie Popsicles and it was time for a new batch of popsicles to keep in the freezer. You know what I love about popsicles? They have built in portion control. For a girl like me that loves ALL frozen treats (especially ice cream), that’s a good thing. I could seriously eat several of these coconut mango lime popsicles throughout the day if I wasn’t careful. They’re sweet, coconut-y, a little tart with a hint of mango.
The thing to remember about making popsicles is you need to make them sweeter than you think. Once the mixture is frozen it doesn’t taste as sweet as it does right out of the blender. I used frozen mango chunks this time around and they weren’t as sweet as I would have liked so I used more cream of coconut (the sweetened coconut stuff used in Pina Coladas). If you have really sweet mangos you could probably cut back on the amount of cream of coconut.
These Coconut Mango Lime Popsicles are such a delicious, creamy, yummy treat! (P.S. I bet they’d be good with a little rum added in the mix…just sayin’…)Print
Coconut Mango Lime Popsicles
- Yield: 10 popsicles 1x
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1/2 – 3/4 C. cream of coconut* (sweetened coconut cream, comes in a can and is what is typically used for Pina Coladas)
- 1 lime, juiced and zested
- 1 1/2 C. mango chunks (I used frozen mango cubes)
- Put all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into popsicles molds and freeze several hours until frozen*
* If you use fresh mangos and they’re really sweet try adding just a 1/2 cup of the cream of coconut and taste to make sure it’s sweet enough.
I put a few diced pieces of mango in the bottom of a couple popsicle molds prior to filling them, you can do that too if you want but it’s not necessary.
I use this type of popsicle mold but you can use any type you like.
