Called the “king of fruits,” mangoes are packed with nutrition.
 


It’s peak mango season – time to stock up on these exotic beauties for when you or you kids are craving a sweet treat. They are high in fiber and antioxidants, including vitamins C and A, and are a healthier alternative to treats with refined and processed sugars. The following recipe is a crowd-pleaser for young and old!

MANGO YOGURT POPS
Adapted from SeriousEats.com
(Makes six 3-oz popsicles)

5 1/2 oz (3/4 cup) cubed, fresh, ripe mango
flesh from 2-3 medium-sized fresh
mangoes or frozen mangoes (see note)
3/4 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
3 oz granulated sugar (1/4 cup plus
1 Tbsp)
2 1/2 oz water (1/4 cup, plus 1 Tbsp)
1/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 tsp fresh lime juice, from one lime
1/2 tsp kosher salt

1. In a blender, combine mango, yogurt, water, cream, lime juice, and salt and process
until very smooth, about 30 seconds.

2. Divide mango mixture evenly between six 3-oz popsicle molds and freeze until solid, at

NOTE: If using frozen fruit, place frozen mango in a bowl and let thaw at room temperature until slightly softened, about 30 minutes. Discard any liquid that has accumulated at bottom of bowl.
