Strawberry Mango Chia Popsicles

Man, it’s hot outside! Instead of eating ice cream all the time, I decided to turn to popsicles to be a little healthier. It’s pretty similar to making frozen yogurt (see my Strawberry Scones & Strawberry Frozen Yogurt recipe), just in a popsicle mold.


Popsicles

I don’t add additional sugar to these mixtures, so they’re not very sweet, but I like them that way and it keeps them a little healthier. I basically mixed two separate mixtures: one with strawberries and one with mangoes. I blended one of the fruit mixtures in a food processor until everything was liquid-y, cleaned it up, then blended the other fruit mixture.

My husband doesn’t like mango very much, so I made a few that were just strawberry too. I kept extra mixtures in the refrigerator for about a day or so and refilled the molds as we ate popsicles. I froze the rest and ate them like frozen yogurt!


Voilà!
