Healthy Vegan Mango Pops

This mango popsicle recipe has only three all natural, sweet ingredients: mango, orange juice and coconut water!

 

They have a pretty striped pattern made by freezing each layer individually, which makes for such a cute popsicle with different flavors.

 

Perfect on a hot summer day as a refreshing and healthy treat!

These mango pops don’t need any added sugar – the fruit is super sweet itself, and if you use frozen fruit you can be sure they were picked and frozen just at the peak of ripeness.

 

Mango is such a great fruit for popsicles because it’s sweet, has a strong flavor and is a great consistency when blended.

 

Adding some orange juice makes these popsicles even more delicious and helps enhance the bright orange color!

 

These are great to make in place of store-bought popsicles that almost always have added sugars and other ingredients.

 

I also love trying new flavors, combinations and colors by making my own!

Healthy Popsicles

To make this mango popsicle recipe, you’ll want a simple popsicle mold. These are super cheap and reusable!

 

If you don’t have one, you can always use a cup with a popsicle stick or a spoon! You’ll just want the cup to be very small, no more than an inch and a half to two inches around so that it will be easy to remove once frozen.

How To Make Homemade Popsicles With Fresh Fruit

These popsicles are incredibly easy to make – and great to keep in your freezer for a sweet and healthy dessert when you need it!

 

If you have the patience for it, I loved making the stripes of mango-orange and coconut.

 

If you’re in a pinch for time you could always do less stripes, make them half and half, or simply leave the coconut out and enjoy fruit pops.

 

Most coconut water is clear, but I used the harmless harvest brand of coconut water to get the pretty pink color!

Preparing The Orange Mango Layer

To make your pretty bright orange layer, let your frozen mango chunks thaw in the fridge overnight in a bowl until soft.

 

You can also do this by putting warm water in a large bowl, and placing the mango chunks into a smaller bowl, then placing the mango bowl inside the water bowl. Just make sure the water does not overflow into the mango bowl.

 

Stir this occasionally until the mango has softened (about 10 minutes). Then add the mango and orange juice to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth!

Making The Striped Coconut Layers

If you want to make the stripes like in my popsicles, it will take some patience but it’s totally worth it!

 

Add a tablespoon or two of the mango puree (depending on the size of your molds, I did one tablespoon at a time for mine because they were pretty small) to your molds, then carefully place the stick inside and lightly lay your drip-catcher on top to keep the stick in place. Let them freeze for an hour or two.

 

Once the mango layer is solid enough that it won’t mix with the coconut water, remove the drip-catcher, add equal parts coconut water, replace the drip-catcher and allow to freeze again.

Continue until you reach the max line on the molds, and then allow to freeze for about 8 hours until fully solid.

 

Once you’re ready to take them out of their molds, simply run the mold under warm water for a few seconds and then pull it out!

Feel free to experiment with all your favorite flavors!

 

I loved using the coconut water with the mango and orange, however the coconut freezes much harder than the fruit, so there is a slight difference in texture. The flavors are still great together though!

 

Some other combinations that I love include: mango cherry, mango and sweetened coconut milk, strawberry mango, or watermelon mint!
