Mango popsicle made with 3 simple ingredients. Fresh mango, honey and natural plain yogurt. This is a natural and refreshing summer treat, talk about enjoying what you love without the guilt.
If you love eating fresh mangoes, then this 3 ingredient mango popsicles recipe is for you. It is very easy to make, I would be surprised if you spend more than 10 minutes making it and that includes chopping the mangoes too. The only waiting time in mango popsicle is the freezing time which in a way is unavoidable as there wouldn’t be a popsicle if it is not frozen. This refreshing summer fruit popsicle recipe might just make you change your mind about regular ice creams and the sugar-laden lollies.
I have got sweet tooth (a shameless one at that too) so once in a while I try to sneak in fruits into desserts or make them into smoothies, popsicles or lollies. Confession of a girl with a sweet tooth: SEND HELP!!! I can’t stop. This mango popsicle is healthy, guilt-free, refreshing and delicious. My children absolutely love them and that makes me happy as we can just stay away from ice cream. Think of this mango popsicle as the frozen version of mango lassi.Jump to Recipe
What is in my mango popsicle
Fresh mangoes: no fast or hard rule here, frozen mangoes would do a great job too
Plain natural yoghurt: for that extra oomph. It makes the popsicle so creamy you would think it is an ice cream
Honey: To sweeten but if you think you are sweet enough, then omit it. Substitute honey for stevia or other sweeteners of choice
Vanilla extract: for flavour and this can be substituted with the good old vanilla yogurt. (make sure you read the label for sugar content)

Can I convince you about the health benefits of mangoes?
Eating mango has many health and nutritional benefits. It is high in fibre, vitamins (vitamin A, C and E) and minerals. Mango is great not only in your body system but also on the skin, face and hair, thanks to the good amount of vitamin A and C it contains. 80g of mango counts as your one in five a day fruit. But it is not the same for dried mango as it contains higher sugar content and high in calories than fresh mango.
- It is high in fibre and low in calories. Cholesterol and sodium-free
- It aids digestion and can help with constipation
- Regulates blood sugar and a safe fruit to eat if you are diabetic
- Helps improve eyesight
