Summers or no summers …I can’t resist a Popsicle!! I enjoy my Popsicles even in the winters… So how could I ever miss out them in these hot days 😉 LoL!
I like all kinds of Popsicles..except the milky/yogurt based ones…don’t know why, but I don’t really care for those much. Kulfis are a different story altogether …I adore them☺️…but we’ll discuss that some other time!
Now…Mangoes! It’s raining mangoes everywhere! And I love my Alphonso so much…no summer’s ever complete without it… There are many variants out there when it comes to mangoes…but I usually don’t like any other variant 😬 Anyways, that’s me! I am sure there are many Alphonso lovers out there..!
Like each year, I made aam-ras to go with Puris and Parathas. Wow! Had so much fun devouring that!
Then came the good, old mango milkshake…yup enjoyed too many glasses..have lost count! 😉 But Popsicles! Ya..now that I wanted to do! Wanted to do a twist on the classic Mango Popsicles ! And twist I did..it’s easy, quick and oh so yummy!
It’s a mildly Spiced Mango Popsicle! I have used some exciting flavours to give it that bit of warmth will take you by surprise between icy cool licks! 😛😛😛 the Mr. & I ..we both liked it and I am gonna be making another batch soon! Are you ready to get yours started?! Well, here’s the easy – peasy recipe..
Yield: 6 popsicles
Equipment: a mixing bowl, Popsicle moulds.
Pulp of 3 large mangoes
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 pinches nutmeg pwd
1/2 tsp chilly flakes
1 tbsp basil seeds ( Sabjaa seeds) pre-soaked in some water
6 ice cream sticks
Stir together all the above mentioned ingredients except the soaked basil seeds in the mixing bowl well. Pour it into the moulds. Then layer some of the soaked basil seeds onto each pulp filled mould and cover the moulds with aluminium foil and place in the freezer for about an hour. Next, get the moulds out, the Popsicle would have set somewhat by now but would still be slushy. Insert the sticks into each mould right in the centre. Cover & pop the moulds back into the freezer for a minimum of 5-6 hours. To unmould the popsicles , dip each mould in a bowl of water for about a minute or so, and gently pull the stick out.. And voilà! There you have your popsicles! Ice pops! Whatever you call them😀
Tip: You could leave them in overnight too…but I don’t think they’d last that long! 😜
Enjoy your summers! It’s just the beginning 😆
