COCONUT MANGO POPSICLES
These mango coconut popsicles are so refreshing. With the added technique of ombre, you start with a creamy vanilla coconut top and end with sweet mango on the bottom.
• 2 mangos diced
• 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
• 1/2 cup vanilla coconut milk
• 1/3 cup orange juice
Layer 1: In a measuring cup mix 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt with 1/2 cup vanilla coconut milk. We used a six count Popsicle mold to fill our mixture with. Drop two tablespoon full of the yogurt mix into each mold. You should have some yogurt left over. Set aside. Put the popsicle molds in the freezer and let sit for about 35 minutes or until a thick slush forms.
Layer 2: While the molds are in the freezer, blend 2 diced mangos (about 1 cups worth) with 1/3 cup orange juice ( for less of a mess you can find mango already diced in the freezer section, trader joes has a great option!). Take 1/2 of the mango puree and slowly add the remaining yogurt mix until you get a desired light colored orange, this will start to create an ombre effect when frozen in layers. Continue to add the mango yogurt mixture to the popsicle molds. About another 2 tablespoons for each mold. Let freeze for another 35 minutes or until it thickens. Depending on your freezer the freezing times can vary.
Layer 3: Now remove from the freezer and begin to place your popsicle sticks in each mold. With the remaining mango puree fill the molds to the top. Place into freezer and freeze for another 4 hours. Ideally leaving them overnight in the freezer and enjoying as a treat the next day.
