If you want a refreshing snack that brings on the sweet and the heat, try these mango popsicles! These dairy-free mango ice pops are made with coconut milk and curry powder. It's a surprising combination for dessert that provides a cooldown with a spicy kick. You don't have to wait until dinner to enjoy the wonderful flavor of curry. With these mango pops, you can enjoy curry at any time of the day!
It has been said that necessity is the mother of invention. When Misfits Market added some seriously overripe (mushy!) fresh mangoes to my delivery box, I needed to figure out how to use them. That is how the idea for these frozen mango popsicles was born.
You want the ripest mangoes possible for this recipe. Since there is no added sugar in these pops, the mango is providing all of the sweetness. The more ripe your mangoes are, the better.
Are your fresh mangoes mushy and a bit past the point where your family will willingly eat them? Use those babies in this recipe; they'll be perfect.
I wanted to go in an unexpected direction with these ice lollies, so I added some curry. If you don't like curry, it is ok to omit this ingredient. However, I'd otherwise encourage you to keep the curry as it adds a surprisingly tasty twist to this simple snack.
Mango is one of my favorite fruits. However, having to peel and chop one each time I want a snack can be a bit of a pain. (Berries and stone fruits are so much easier, eh?)
Luckily, once I make these mango pops with coconut and curry, I can have some immediate mango goodness whenever I want it. I'm thinking I might go grab one right now!
