I have to say I’m so glad you enjoyed the post yesterday! I really enjoyed doing it and can’t wait to do more If you missed it, check it out and let me know what you think!
The post for today… More popsicles!
OK, I know popsicles are getting old, but I make so many different varieties! I’m sure my kids would be fine with the same kinds over and over again, but I’m the one that gets bored. I am so glad I keep experimenting though, these are so good! I wish I had more in the freezer, but I’m moving onto another flavor today. I’m thinking of making blueberry froyo popsicles later today
But for now I need to get busy and clean out my reader that’s been piling up all weekend and all day today Anyone else drowning in reading? I love reading so many blogs, but it’s amazing how much time it takes!
These popsicles are so creamy - like a mango creamsicle! I’m sure it’s partially due to the fact that I use full fat yogurt, but I’m sure it’s also because mangos aren’t a particularly watery fruit, if you understand what I mean.
As for the cardamom, I’m sure not everyone has this in their spice cupboard, but if you have it, add it! It’s such a cooling spice that makes these even more refreshing. I love the flavor of cardamom but I love using it in summer desserts because of it’s cooling effect too. I especially like it in warm desserts, like fruit crisps and cobblers
Mango Lassi Popsicles
Makes about 10 -1/2 C popsicles
- 3 C mango pulp from 2-3 mangos
- 1 1/2 C plain yogurt
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp cardamom
- 2 tsp vanilla
To make the mango pulp, remove the skin from the mangos and slice the flesh of the fruit off the pit. Place in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Add the yogurt, honey, cardamom and vanilla and blend until completely combined. Pour or spoon into popsicle moulds and freeze until completely solid, at least 4 hours. Run warm water over the popsicles to remove them from the moulds.
To make mango lassis to serve two, use the above recipe and reduce the yogurt slightly, thin the drink with a little milk and omit the honey if desired and serve cold.
