A Frozen Treat To Make Your Taste Buds Pop!

Nothing refreshes in the summer better than a tasty frozen treat on a stick! Here's a delicious ice pop that's not only great tasting, but also a healthy alternative to those boxes of artificially colored sugary water pops you find at the grocery store!

These Mango-Lassi pops combine the summery taste of fresh mango, with yogurt, buttermilk and a small amount of fresh honey!

In the bowl of a food processor or blender, blend 2 cups of ripe mango chunks (can be fresh or frozen) until it becomes a very fine paste.

To that, add 1/2 cup of plain yogurt, 1/2 cup of buttermilk, 1 tablespoon of honey and a pinch of salt. Blend until pale orange and very smooth.

Fill popsicle molds to about 1/4" from the top.

Cover and freeze for about an hour. Then insert the popsicle sticks and freeze for another 8 hours.

Dip the mold in warm water for a few seconds to help dislodge the pops! Enjoy!!


  1. Yum! I love your ice pop mold! Where did you get it?! The recipe sounds so refreshing!

  2. Hi Kenn! I got that mold a few years back at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I believe they still carry it. I remember Martha using one years ago on her show and I think it was once carried by Martha By Mail, not sure though!

  3. Mmmm! I am going to try these. They would be perfect in this 100 degree weather we have been having!

  4. Did you seriously meet Martha! Wow! I came over from the Friends of Martha Blog :) You have some really really good recipes on your site. I'm a new follower and look forward to more.

    Where did you get your molds?

  5. Looks yummy, I think I need to try these, TFS
