The sweltering heat…sticky, humid afternoons and my loss of appetite 😑😑 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 😂 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 😂😂😜😜😜
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 Cooler . It is one of the most refreshing drinks that I have ever put together, obviously after my Tropical ice tea!😍
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…😂😂🤣
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 👌🏼 You’ll be making it even before logging out of the blog 😁
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 😍
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 freezer 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. 😊
Mango Kiwi Popsicles are dairy-free, gluten-free, artificial sweetener-free frozen treats! Summers call for these and you must make some today!
