I’m going to fess up, I have a slight addiction to frozen treats. Yes, that Banana Pudding Ice Cream was just the start! Now my kids have caught it too! I’ve been making loads of vegan ice pops that are out of this world. These Mango Lime Ice Pops are a delicious frozen treat!
As soon as the temperatures rose above 100 degrees here in Arizona I started making a bunch of different ice pop recipes. We’ve had two strong favorites and I’m sharing one of them today.
This Mango Lime Ice Pop may be one of the most refreshing frozen treats I’ve ever had. It’s made with 4 simple ingredients, mango, lime, coconut water and stevia. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
I love mango but I prefer it with other flavors like my Black Bean Mango Salad. My husband and youngest son will eat mango by itself. I think lime is the perfect addition to mango and once you try this frozen treat you will too.
I used the yellow mangos but you could use the pretty green/red/yellow ones. You could even use frozen mango but I’d let it thaw a little. After cutting up my mango I had about 1 1/2 cups. If you have a little more or a little less it will still work.
Other than the simple ingredients you’ll also need a mold for making frozen treats, unless you are doing the small cups or ice cube method. I have two different molds for making delicious frozen treats but I used this one from Amazon. Don’t forget to buy the sticks unless you are using molds that come with sticks.
This recipe makes four frozen treats with a little left over that we ate right then without freezing it! I will definitely make these again!
I was a little concerned that my kids would think they tasted too “grown up” but they loved them too.
Mango Lime Ice Pops
- 2 yellow mangos
- 1 lime (juice and zest)
- ½ cup coconut water
- 2 Stevia packets
- Peel mangos and remove the flesh.
- Wash the lime then use a microplane to peel the lime zest.
- Squeeze all the juice out of the lime into a measuring cup.
- Pour coconut water in the measuring cup (with the lime juice) until it reaches the ½ cup mark. You will use more or less coconut water depending on how much lime juice you have. Pour in Stevia.
- Blend in a high powered blender then carefully pour into your treat molds and freeze over night.
- To remove the ice pops from the mold, submerge the bottom of the molds in warm water being careful not to get the treats wet.
