Mango Ginger Yogurt Popsicles

Mango Ginger Yogurt Popsicles

I don’t know about anyone else in New York, but I was really into last week’s heat wave.  I’m a warm weather gal.  I’ll take 90 degrees, over 20 degrees any day of the week!  I cranked up the air conditioner, and broke out my flip flops and sandals, some of my favorite summer dresses, and best of all, my new popsicle mold.

Last week officially marked the start of popsicle season!!  I’m calling it now, this is going to be the summer of the popsicle.  I’m in love with my popsicle mold, the same way I’m in love with my doughnut pan.  Maybe even more!  I just stocked up on 500 popsicle sticks and can’t stop thinking about all the delicious frozen treats coming my way!

Last weekend also marked my first long bike ride in a reeeeeally long time.  Despite heading out early in the morning, it was blazing hot and the sun felt relentless.  On more than one occasion I was sure my skin was melting off….I also thought my quads were going to explode and that I could eat an entire watermelon.  That gives you  a little idea of where my head was at.  I didn’t spend my entire ride in crazytown though.  I also spent a good chunk of that ride thinking about popsicles flavor combinations.

Determining how to kick off popsicle season was a no-brainer.  Last month I received a set of super handy summer fruit tools from Oxo, and have been dying to try out the mango cutter!  This little gadget splits mangoes in half like a dream.  I love mangoes, I really hate cutting them….but thanks to the smart folks at Oxo, that job just got a lot easier!

These popsicles!  They’re cool, creamy and absolutely refreshing!  The combination of sweet mango, tangy Greek yogurt ginger play together oh so well.  And, just like your favorite flip flops, these popsicles are a summertime must-have!

Mango Ginger Yogurt Popsicles

Yield: Makes 10 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 3 medium mangoes, chopped
  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1-3 teaspoons ground ginger, depending on your taste

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a blender (or food processor) and process until smooth.

Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds. If you used a food processor, you'll find it easiest to transfer the mixture to a large measuring cup, or bowl, with a spout, and then pour into the molds.

Freeze at least 3-4 hours. To remove the popsicles, run the molds under hot water for a few seconds.

These look so refreshing. I recently made mango cream pops for my kids but I love the addition of ginger!

The ginger was a subtle, but fun addition! Definitely a keeper for summer :)

I like them, but I would go a little lighter on the ginger for next time. But it is a good combo. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Is there something else you can use to make popsicles besides yogurt. It gives me a terrible migraine.. in all its forms.

Sorry to hear yogurt doesn’t agree with you :( Try using coconut milk instead. It should work consistency-wise and the flavor will work great with the mango. Enjoy!

I just made these and everyone agreed that 2 TABLESPOONS of ground ginger was excessive and ruined the popsicles. If I tried these again, I would add maybe ONE TEASPOON of ginger to start with (since the rest tasted good as far as we could tell). Now I wasted a whole lot of expensive fruit and yogurt. :(

Sorry to hear you didn’t like the popsicles :( Thanks for your suggestion on the ginger…editing the recipe to include a range for the ginger.
