Mango-Lime Popsicles

While the Summer Solstice does not arrive until next month… it sure feels like official summer is already here.

I don’t know what it’s like in your neck of the woods but in my area the mercury is high and the air is steamy.

I’ll be honest with you, this is not my favorite time of year.

It often feels like we have only about 4 days of lovely Spring weather before we dive right into the heat of the summer.

With that in mind, it’s time to break out the frozen treats with Mango-Lime Popsicles.

If you’re starting to feel like you’re in the tropics, you’ll love this tropical-inspired treat on a stick.

My kids love fresh mangoes and this is an easy recipe that combines that delicious fruit with a few other simple ingredients.

It doesn’t get much easier than this.

When my kids were really young, I used to buy Popsicles just like the ones I used to eat as a child.

I have some similar Rocket-pop molds and I’ve been playing around with ingredients to make red-white-and-blue pops for the upcoming 4th of July holiday.

They had a unique lemon flavor. Anyone, remember those?

Anyone, as for these Mango-lime pops, just drop all the ingredients into a blender and that’s basically it.

The few drops of fresh lime juice added to the mixture will give you the tiniest hint of tartness which combines nicely with the sweet mango flavor.

I also think the lime peeking through all that yellow frozen mango mixture, adds a nice pop of color contrast too.

You know I like to add a little handcrafted whimsy to many of the things I make.

Add lettering to the Popsicle sticks using rubber alphabet stamps.

Be sure to add lettering to the very end of the stick so that it does not come in contact with the mango mixture.

If serving kids, you may also want to add their names to the other side of the stick for fun.

    These look refreshing and I love the color. Stamping the ends of the sticks was a great way to dress up this delicious treat. We are craving hot weather around here. Mother Nature thinks we still need to wear jackets!

    Oh la la. It’s mango season where I am and the most beautiful one plopped in my yard the other day. It’s was all gold and florescent orange. So delicious. These popsicles look so refreshing. – I have a question for you though. I’ve always had a hard time getting popsicles out of their mold, do you have any tricks? As always, thanks for your post, it’s wonderful!

  • jennifer

    These look so beautiful!

    I probably shouldn’t tell you this but I scarcely need popsicles where I live on the Maine coast. Summers are pretty cool-even with climate change.

    I love, love, love the platter!

  • Marisa Franca @ All Our Way

    To tell you the truth I don’t do well in heat either. Right now on Saint Simons Island, it’s really muggy!! By the water, there is a nice breeze and that’s where I head. Your popsicles look so good and refreshing. I’ve been meaning to get some forms and make some for the grandkids (and me 😉). I’m pinning your recipe to make once we get home. Stay cool!!! Hugs!
