Mango Kiwi Popsicles

ย The sweltering heat…sticky, humid afternoons and my loss of appetite ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘ yeah…I do manage to skip meals very easily. Somehow, I never tend to feel all that hungry too… but it’s the thirst and constant craving for something chilled that keeps me running to the refrigerator every few minutes ๐Ÿ˜‚ Chilled, ice cold water and I have a very, very long relationship….more like a love and hate relationship…because I love it and it tends to give me throat issues every now and then…hence the hate bit ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

It doesn’t make any difference to me! Lol! Anyways…it’s the chilled stuff that keeps me going in summers. And, people who follow the blog regularly know that I have been posting a lot of ice creams and Popsicles since the summers have started….I even shared a recipe of a lovely, exotic drink, my Rose and Pineapple Coolerย . It is one of the most refreshing drinks that I have ever put together, obviously after my Tropical ice tea!๐Ÿ˜

Since it’s the summers, mangoes can’t be far away…can they!? Juicy, ripe and so sweet…they are my go to snack these days. A couple or more of chopped Alphonso (always Alphonso) mangoes and that’s my lunch pretty much sorted (I adda couple drops lemon juice and a few torn mint leaves), it’s so refreshing and helps me push through my work for another couple of hours during the long afternoons….sigh!! Yeah, summers do make me lazy and processing picture after picture can take a lot out of me…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

Anyways… talking about tropical stuff always reminds me of Kiwis, they are another of my most favourite tropical fruits…. and I always have a few in my refrigerator…they pair well with almost every other fruit (read making a quick fruit salad thingy) and look too pretty if you need to add them as a quick garnish for drinks or mocktails….which reminds me….you must go take a look at my Kiwi mojito Popsicle ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ You’ll be making it even before logging out of the blog ๐Ÿ˜

So what do I do when I have to clear out my refrigerator over the weekend to make room for fresh produce…I look at all the leftover bits of sliced mangoes and some kiwis sitting at the back of the refrigerator…I think frozen goodies to take me through my misery of the week ahead that is going to need a tad bit of extra efforts….phew! Popsicles….my mind jumps at the prospect of the very thought! Hahha….but a girl needs to make her snacks healthy, doesn’t she!? What more can I add to these beauties to ensure that….well, enough said…check out the recipe below and go make yourself some….call it a Mango Kiwi Popsicle or tropical smoothie Popsicle ๐Ÿ˜

Let’s make some Mango Kiwi Popsicles..

In a blender jar, add coconut water along with mango pulp and give it a whiz.

Now, pour half of this mixture into each Popsicle mould, fill them only about to the 1/4 th capacity. We will use the remaining half for the next step. Place the moulds in the freezerย for setting the pulp, for about 2-3 hours.

Then remove the moulds with the set pulp. I have added kiwi slices in the first 2 mounds and kiwi pulp in the remaining two moulds. Then pour remaining mango-coconut mixture into all 4 moulds (the kiwi and mango pulp blend into each other very naturally and I think it looks pretty too) and add an ice cream stick into each mould. Place them in the freezer to set for another 4-5 hours.

That’s it, once they have frozen completely, to serve them, dip the lower halfs of the moulds into water for 1-2 minutes, gently tug at the ice-cream sticks and pull out each Popsicle. One of the healthiest ways to enjoy frozen treats without added colours or artificial sweetners. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Eggless No Cook No Churn Tutti Frutti Ice Cream

Hey all….yes..I have been a bit out of it lately…blame the summers..! Yes, please do blame the summers…so that you have an excellent excuse to make yourself some creamy….dreamy ice cream ๐Ÿ˜

My No Churn, No Cook and egg free Tutti Frutti Ice Cream ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— should cool you down I guess….it certainly did cool us down…scoop after scoop were polished off this last weekend and I have been ordered by my man to make some more ice cream ASAP! I will indulge him๐Ÿ˜˜ I always do…..

Tutti Frutti ice cream recipe Eggless no cook no Churn Tutti Frutti ice cream Polkapuffs Shreya tiwari photography

I prefer ice creams rarely…more of a Popsicle girl..(see my Fruity Volcano Popsicle hereย …you’ll love it!). But when I do make an ice cream…I make a mean one! It’s always on point! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love ice creams that need no churning machines and fancy equipment….and definitely no fancy ingredients! They need to be simple, easy to put together and they must taste better than the ones at your favourite ice cream place..!

This Tutti Frutti ice cream checks all the right boxes and is big on flavour!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸปIt’s slightly citrusy…..that’s my version. You can go with the classic vanilla flavour or even almond extract would go beautifully. There are infinite options…if you like, add some cardamom flavour or even a bit of saffron (Kesar).

Tutti Frutti ice cream recipe Eggless no cook no Churn Tutti Frutti ice cream Polkapuffs Shreya tiwari photography

Coming to how to get that beautiful texture which is so creamy and yet has a firmness…. we come across many recipes which are no-cook, no-egg and no-churnย but many of these recipes are complicated or call for some preservatives too. I won’t advocate such recipes…I like the idea of making ice cream only because it can be done without any CMC or GMS powders. These are obviously exceptional ingredients to ensure a good textured ice cream, but the challenge lies in making home made ice cream without any of these.

I have used very basic ingredients which are easily available and since it doesn’t need any machine to churn the mixture, a simple wired whisk or an electric whisk can do the magic!

Lets make some ice cream…

Place the the wired whisk or the whisk attachment of the electric whisk along with the stainless steel mixing bowl in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes an hour for them to chill.

In the chilled bowl, take the chilled whipping cream, whisk it for 4-5 minutes using the electric whisk until the cream has soft peaks. It will take about 10-12 minutes manually.

Next add the milk powder and whisk again until it is fully incorporated. Now, pour the condensed milk into the whipped cream and using a rubber spatula, gently fold the condensed milk into the whipped cream. Add the lemon zest next. If you are using the colour, add that colour and the tutti frutti bits. Mix everything gently so the the air incorporated into the cream doesn’t escape.

Pour the the mixture into the tin and cover theย tin with some aluminium foil. Set it in the freezer for about 2 hours, it will be partially set by then. Remove from the freezer after 2 hours, remove the partially set ice cream in another chilled stainless steel bowl and whisk it again for 2-3 minutes. Pour the mixture back into the tin and cover it again with the foil. Freeze the mixture for 6-7 hours.

To serve, keep the ice cream in room temperature for 10 minutes before scooping it into bowls and devouring it๐Ÿ˜‰

Tip: I have used the lemon zest to cut the sweetness, the ice cream does taste very mildly citrusy. You can omit the colour or choose any other colour.

Eggless No Cook No Churn Tutti Frutti Ice Cream

Prep Time: 9 hours, 10 minutes

  • 4-5 drops orange gel color (or even liquid)

Volcano Popsicles | Strawberry and Orange Popsicles

Yes, I am absolutely obsessed with Popsicles of any and every kind…actually anything icy! I loved chilled things, even in the dead of cold, I could never pass a chance of enjoying a Popsicle! Not ice-cream though, although my blog has many recipes for both, I am more of a Popsicle girl๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜

If you ask me why not ice-creams…I don’t really have a reason. I just love the juicy and watery flavours of fruit based Popsicles! Always have….always will! They do give me bad throat infections at times but I think they worth every course of anti-biotics I’ve had over the years ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚

But with this recipe, I will teach you how to make perfect store bought-like texture for these Popsicles. Yes, store bought Popsicles are not full of icicles in them. They are more smooth and have a very even texture, almost like a sorbet but firmer. However, if you wish can follow simple juice and freeze method tooand make Popsicles but they will have icy bits (icicles) in them. I don’t like icicles in my Popsicles and hence this recipe is good for me…I was keen to understand what ingredients goes into the store bought Popsicles, and just on the cover of each popsicle, it is mentioned ‘glucose’….so I’ve done exactly that! Liquid glucose worked so well. Obviously, I adjusted the measurements as the cover never mentioned the proportion and alongside the store bought ones have a fair bit of preservatives too. But I have used just 4 ingredients to make them!

Yield: 4 Popsicles

Equipments: a sauce pan, a juicer (if using homemade juice), measuring cups/ spoons, Popsicle mould, ice cream sticks.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup pulp of fresh strawberries (I did not add sugar, you may if the berries aren’t sweet enough)

200 ml freshly squeezed orange juice (juice of approximately 5-6 oranges)

2 tbsp sugar (I used some for the orange juice as the oranges were a bit tart)

2 tbsp glucose syrup (sweetened, it’s available in any store that stocks all the baking related ingredients) or even corn syrup.

Method:

Keep the mould ready.

In a saucepan, heat orange juice for a few mins. Once it has come to a gentle boil, add the sugar. Mix well using a whisk. Next add the glucose syrup and whisk quickly. Make sure the syrup is mixed very well. Now, turn off the flame and let the orange juice cook down for a few minutes.

Next, fill about 3/4th (approximately 50 ml) of each popsicle mould with the orange juice- glucose mixture. Place the moulds in the freezer and let them set for about 2-3 hours. Remove from the freezer and insert ice-cream sticks in the center of each mould. Freeze again for about 1 hour.

Remove the moulds again from the freezer after an hour, fill each mould to it’s brim with the strawberry pulp. (I didn’t treat the strawberry pulp with the glucose syrup as the pulp doesn’t really have any icicles after freezing).

Freeze the moulds for another 3-4 hours or until the Popsicles are frozen well. To serve, dip the mould in some lukewarm water for 2 mins, gently tug the ice cream sticks and pull out the popsicle from the moulds! Voilร !!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ enjoy!!

(Note- adding glucose syrup is optional, we can omit that as well and make basic Popsicles)

You can follow this recipe for any fruit juice/ pulp in any combination…they are so delicious and absolutely preservative free. They keep well in the freezer for upto a week, but I suggest try to finish them and make fresh batches every few days. It’s so easy ๐Ÿ˜„
