Simply Obsessed Frozen Coconut Mango Pops




Frozen popsicles made with coconut milk and pureed mango, so good!!

We're having a heat wave here in New York. The kind of heat that you don't want to be outside, unless you're in a pool or sprinkler keeping you cool. I won't dare turn my oven on this week, even grilling is out of the question until things cool down.

But these ice pops... I'm obsessed!! I'm making these all summer long, I can't even begin to tell you how delicious they are. I don't think any of my other ice pops come close. And since so many of you asked about what popsicle mold I use, I linked the popsicle maker from Progressive available on Amazon here.

  • 1 cup canned light coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar (I used raw)

In a medium bowl combine the remaining coconut milk beverage, canned coconut milk and the honey; mix well until combined thoroughly.

  2. Yummy! Coconut and mangos are my favorites right now! Gina, if I wanted to skip the sugar and avoid stevia or any sweeteners what could I use to replace? Could I use maple syrup or additional honey?

  3. These will be on my next grocery list. I made the peaches n' cream ones for a 4th of July BBQ last week, and they were such a hit. That said, I can't imagine how these taste!

  5. I cant wait to try these. What is a coconut milk beverage? Where would I find that in the grocery store?

    1. It's usually refrigerated in the milk section. Also in the cartons. So Delicious, Trader Joe's, Coconut Dream, Silk all carry it, and Almond Breeze carries an almond-coconut milk blend.

  7. How is "coconut milk beverage" different from coconut milk? Can you recommend any brands to look for?

  8. Coconut milk beverage is in the refrigerated section, like Silk Coconut Milk. Coconut milk, or light coconut milk, comes in a can near the ethnic foods.

  18. I don't think it will be easy for me to find coconut milk beverage.. Coconut water drinks, yes, but milk beverage, no. Can that be a substitute instead?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I would not recommend that. Coconut water tastes sour to me. Maybe you can use almond milk?

      Delete
    2. Hmm.. I was thinking that too, but I'll have to make it myself. Not worth buying, it's way too expensive. A litre of Almond milk costs almost $10. I read somewhere a substitute would be getting full cream coconut milk and adding water to it, will most probably try that. Thank you for the suggestion, though! :)

  19. Gina- these look AWESOME! I just got the ingredients and can't wait to try!

    kainaat-They have Silk Coconut Milk in the refrigerated milk section at Walmart.

    1. I'm from Dubai, so things like Coconut milk and Almond milk is not always available everywhere, and if they are, then they're quite expensive, sadly. Which is why I was asking if I can use Coconut water instead.. or maybe something else? I was thinking maybe some mango shake or something.. will probably experiment!

    2. Coconut water would likely work well for these! Just an icey version instead of creamy version. I might try them this way too since I have an open container of coconut water. :-)

    3. I just saw your reply above. I think pineapple and coconut water might work well together. But I would love to hear how your version turns out!

  20. OMG!! Looks stunning..... This will definitely be there with my raw snack week-end plan. Can't wait till Saturday ;p

  22. These look so great! I didn't have a popsicle mold so I made them in cupcake form with some tweaks. Check them out on my blog here: eathardworkhard.blogspot.com

  24. How would the points change on this if I used regular canned coconut vs the light?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Im not a mango fan but a big fan of coconut. Can I skip the mango ingredient so they are just coconut pops? these looks so good :)!

    ReplyDelete
