INGEDIENTS YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE MANGO POPSICLES

  • Greek yogurt: The thick creamy yogurt has minimal water contents and makes a perfect base for this MANGO LASSI pops.
  • Maple Syrup: I like to use maple syrup in this recipe, but local honey will work wonders too.
  • Water Or Milk: A bit of liquid is needed to help everything blend up.
  • Cardamom Powder: No lassi is complete without a hint of cardamom powder.

EQUIPMENTS YOU WILL NEED

  • Blender: You will need a blender to make the mango lassi. Most blenders should work fine for this recipe. I have used my Vitamix to my Hamilton beach blender grinder to make the mango lassi.
  • Popsicle Molds: Avoid frustration by using a great popsicle mold. If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can always with paper cups to make the mango lassi popsicles.

STEP BY STEP METHOD OF MAKING POPSICLES

IF YOU ARE USING FRESH MANGOES:

Make sure the mangoes are ripe and not very fibrous.

  1. Cut into chunks: Start by peeling and cutting the mango into chunks. If you are new to dealing with fresh mangoes, here is a post that can help you in learning how to cut a mango.
  2. Blend into a puree: Add the mango chunks in your food processor and grind them into a smooth puree.
  3. Add other ingredients into the blender: Now add Greek yogurt, milk, cardamom powder and maple syrup into the food processor.
  4. Blend: Give it a quick pulse to combine everything well.
  5. Fill popsicle mold: Now fill the mixture into the molds, leaving a little room at the top. Place the lid and transfer the mold into the freezer.
  6. Freeze: Now freeze for 6-8 hours. When ready, take it out of the freezer, demold, and enjoy! 

IF YOU ARE USING MANGO PULP:

If you are going to use mango pulp, try to get either the alphonso or Kesari mango pulp from Indian stores. Amazon also carries mango pulp.

  1. Add Ingredients To Blender: Place the milk, yogurt, mango pulp, cardamom powder and maple syrup into a blender.
  2. Blend: Blend until smooth. The blended mixture will look creamy even though it’s just fruit.
  3. Fill Molds: Pour mixture into popsicle molds.
  4. Freeze: Freeze for at least four hours (preferably overnight) and enjoy!

TIPS & TRICKS

I may not be an expert in making homemade popsicles or ice pops at home, but I know my ways around food and I really think there are a few things that make a perfect popsicle.

  • The ice should not crystalize and if you use full-fat Greek yogurt as your base, it will prevent ice crystals from forming and the popsicle consistency will remain silky. 
  • Use fresh, perfectly ripe mangoes to make a puree. This ensures maximum flavor and fruitiness. In case, you don’t have fresh sweet mangoes available, use good quality mango pulp. Its readily available in Indian Grocery stores.
  • No good lassi is complete without cardamom.
  • Use a hint of turmeric to get that gorgeous yellow
  • Mix a spoonful of chopped mangoes into the lassi before pouring the mango lassi into the popsicle molds.
  • If you have a saffron, use some saffron to get a beautiful color.
