These Mango Vanilla Popsicles are a delicious and nutritious quick fix to summer snacking.
Hello, everyone. Mangoes are in season, and I really can’t get enough of them. With my every trip to the produce store, mangoes are on the top of my list. My daughter loves them too. We both relish raw green mangoes and the yellow ones. Today I have shared a recipe for a Quick Mango Vanilla Popsicle which can be made in just a few minutes and can be enjoyed on these hot summer days.
In the following recipe, I have made mango puree from a fresh mango, added then added some organic mango juice to it. Just to thin out the mixture. Then whisked whipped cream with vanilla essence and sugar. Finally assembled these in layers in a popsicle mold and froze it till set. A delicious Mango Vanilla Popsicle was ready in just a hours. These are defiantly better than any store bought ice cream popsicles.
Mango is a very delicious and nutritious fruit for us. Especially for kids, it’s a good alternative to preservative laden snacks. They are a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, sodium, zinc, iron, manganese, and copper. Besides these, they are high in fiber. Mangos contain a higher level of carotenoids which reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. They also help in fighting the common cold. Mangoes are rich in anti-oxidants too. This wonderful fruit can be introduced to babies at the age of 8 months. Mangoes can sometimes cause diaper rash or diarrhea due to it high fiber content. So use caution while introducing mangoes to babies younger than 8 months.
Try these Mango popsicles for your family soon, and enjoy the hot summer days.
