I’m ultra pleased to have an icy, sweet treat for you tonight – mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, popsicles!  They’re so good that Morris, our trusty messenger horse, put his hoof up to endorse them.  So thanks to you Morris – here we go with the recipe for mango-orange-lime-coconut popsicles – they are a flavour sensation!

Thanks to Morris for endorsing these sweet treats!

Ingredients

1 lime
1 orange
2 small mangoes or one large mango
200 ml of coconut milk
1.5 tablespoons caster sugar (granulated sugar)

Makes four popsicles

Mmmmmm... fruity goodness

Method

Get your popsicle moulds ready.  If you don’t have popsicle moulds, you could use little plastic cups and paddlepop sticks.  If using the latter, set your cups out on the bench, ready to be filled later.

Zest about 1 teaspoon of rind from the lime and 1 teaspoon of rind from the orange and put both straight into your food processor bowl.  Squeeze the juice from 1/2 the lime and 1/2 the orange into the food processor over the top.

Skin your mangoes, then chop as much of the flesh off them as you can.   Whack that into the bowl of your food processor with the other ingredients.  Whiz away till you’ve got puree.

Add 200 ml of coconut milk into the food processor and whiz to combine all the ingredients.

Then add in one tablespoon of the sugar and whiz again to ensure everything is mixed very well.

Popsicle mixture

Taste the mixture.  If it’s not sweet enough, add more of the sugar to sweeten it to your liking.  Once you’re satisfied with the flavour, pour the mixture into your popsicle moulds and leave about 1 cm of space free at the top – as your popsicles will expand when they freeze.  If you’re using plastic cups, fill the cups and then stand a paddle pop stick up in each cup.

Whack them in the freezer and try your very best to forget about them for at least four hours, but overnight is better.

If you’re anything like me, wake up in the morning and bounce straight out of bed, over to the fridge to check on them…  Mr L had to stop me from breaking into them at 7:30 this morning!

To extract your popsicles, run them under warm water for a couple of seconds, then ease them out of the mould.

Eat em while they’re cold!  These citrusy numbers are lovely and refreshing on a hot summer day.

Enjoy! 🙂

Popsicle magic!

    Many thanks to Lynne for pointing out the errors in the post – somehow, a lemon turned up in the method as a mystery ingredient! All fixed as at 19 January 2011. 🙂
