Mango Popsicles

Hannah, never having tasted a mango, told me that she loved them. She saw my single lone fruit in the bowl, and wanted to have it. At the time she was visiting it was not ripe. With the season nearly over I bought some mango slices and made mango popsicles for her to enjoy. For Hannah, these healthy ice lollies are a treat and I think it is such a pleasure to make these for her.

Let’s talk about mangoes

Did you know that there are several hundred varieties of this fruit? This is a tropical stone fruit originating from South Asia and Southeast Asia. And today there are two common strains, namely the Indian mango and the Southeast Asian varietal. The fruit comes in a range of sizes, shapes and skin colours and the level of sweetness differ between each one. Mango flesh can be anything from pale yellow, orange, red, gold, or even green in colour. The eating quality depends on the cultivar and you can expect the long flat pip to be fibrous or hairy on the surface, making the pulp ‘stick’ to it. Mangoes can weigh anything from 140 grams to 2 kilograms! And when ripe, the skin, which can be anything from smooth, to waxy or leather-like, will give off a distinct resinous, sweet smell.

The perfect summer fruit

I love mangoes, and luckily for me, in a house of two, I am the only one! I buy one mango at a time and place it into the fruit bowl until it is nearly ripe. It then goes into the fridge as I like my fruit to be cold. And within a day or two you will find me cutting the cheeks off and turning them into hedgehogs. Once all the flesh is off the pip and my hands are full of juice, I feel like I have had a treat. But what better way to extend this treat than to make mango popsicles?

  1. Hubby and I are oddities here in Queensland, as we are not mango lovers! I can take them in small amounts if they are disguised – like in a smoothie 🙂 And I could probably enjoy these frozen treats too!
