The delicious combination of coconut, mango, and lime has all the feels of sun, sand, and beach vacations.
- 2 cups frozen mango, (see note 1)
- 1 14 oz. can full-fat coconut milk, cream only, (see note 2)
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 Tbsp lime juice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch, optional (see note 3)
- shredded coconut, optional
Blend: Put all ingredients, except shredded coconut, in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Pour and Freeze: Pour the mixture into popsicles molds (see note 4) and insert popsicles sticks. Freeze for at least 6 hours. Store the popsicles in the freezer until ready to eat (see note 5).
Garnish (optional step): Once the popsicles are frozen, take them out of the popsicle molds and briefly run them under cold water just to wet the surface. Then sprinkle with shredded coconut and return them to the freezer to ensure the shredded coconut sticks to the popsicles. Keep in the freezer until ready to enjoy!
Note 1 - Mango: Fresh or frozen mango can be used in this recipe.
Note 2 - Coconut Milk, Cream Only: Canned coconut milk generally separates into two distinct layers. The top layer is a thick white cream and the bottom layer is a liquid. Only add the top layer of white cream to the blender. Discard the bottom liquid layer. HOWEVER, your popsicles will not be ruined if you also add the liquid layer to the blender. In this case omit the almond milk.
Note 3 - Cornstarch (optional ingredient): Cornstarch makes the texture of the popsicles creamier. So, if your prefer a creamier popsicle, mix 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 Tablespoon of water (this is called a slurry). Then add the mixture to the blender with the rest of the ingredients before blending.
Note 4 - Popsicle Molds: Any popsicle mold will work just fine. However, I recommend silicone popsicle molds because they make it very easy to remove the popsicles from the molds without breaking them.
Note 5 - Popsicle Storage: The popsicles can be stored directly in your popsicle molds. You can also remove the popsicles from the molds and store the popsicles in individual baggies or all of them in one big baggie.
