I love mango and miss it when it's off season but thanks to frozen fruit I can make this east mango popsicles recipe anytime I want. They have the perfect sweetness with just a little tartness and with only 3 ingredients you can whip them up in no time.
This mango recipe is a great way to get a daily serving of fruit and curb a sweet snack craving all at the same time. You can use any sugar you prefer combined with mango and a little citrus juice. I bought a Hamilton Beach quick pop maker which is like the Zoku quick pop maker but a third less in price. It freezes my popsicles in 10 minutes so there is no waiting for these mango popsicles to freeze. What can I say patience is not one of my strong suits.
Besides tasting great, here are a few reasons why mango is so good for you:

You can substitute any of your favorite fruits in this recipe like strawberries, pineapple, or any fruit blend. If your favorite fruit is in season and you don't want to use frozen then cut up your fresh fruit into small one inch chunks or slices, place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and freeze for two hours before making your fresh fruit popsicles.
