Mango Raspberry Pops + OXO / ZOKU GiveawayPosted by Katie on Jul 22, 2013 in Frozen Treat, Katie Original | 22 comments
Frozen Treat Week has been a few months in the making, and its finally here! Last year, you might remember I hosted a virtual ice cream social. My friend Brandy from Nutmeg Nanny hosted a similar event last year. This year, we decided to team up and co-host together for a week long event filled with not only ice cream but frozen treats in general!
To start things off, I’m sharing this simple 3 ingredient recipe for Mango Raspberry Pops! Yes, just three ingredients and is ready to eat in less than 15 minutes. Nothing like a sweet refreshing treat on a hot summer day. I will be the first to admit that I didn’t enjoy mango’s until our honeymoon 5 years ago. We were in St. Luica for a week, a beautiful island where the fruit is bountiful. Especially the mangos. Upon arriving to our room in a little boutique hotel perched on top of the mountain that over looked the beautiful Caribbean waters, sat a beautiful fruit plate. Of course on this fruit plate there were a few pieces of sweet sliced mango. My husband dug right in. I ate the fruit that I knew I would enjoy. I of course skipped the mango. After he ate the first slice of mango he couldn’t stop raving about how sweet it was. After his persuasion I took a bite. I was amazed how delicious it was.
On the next day of our trip, we were out in town and I made our driver stop at a road side stand so I could buy mangos. I bought 6 mangos. My husband thought I was crazy. That afternoon as we settled into our cottage we sat in rocking chairs on the front porch and both dug into freshly grown mangos. The picture above was of our fresh fruit plate on our porch. We ordered a fruit plate each day, and also ate a mango each typically during our afternoon snack.
So now that you know my back story about how I fell in love with mangoes on my honeymoon now I can tell you a little bit about this recipe. I’m always looking for easy summer ice pop recipes. One way I can create them is easily and quickly is with my ZOKU pop maker! If you don’t have one and love ice pops you should definitely go invest in one (or enter the giveaway below). This 3-ingredient recipe is super easy to make and quite refreshing on a hot day.
