Mango Lassi Popsicles

Mango Lassi Popsicles // shutterbean

Dust off your popsicle molds! Make space in your freezer (hides head in shame) because popsicle season has begun! I know, I know you can totally eat popsicles year round, but in my brain I feel like it’s only OK to do it when it’s hot outside.

Cooper’s favorite thing to get when we’re out for Indian food is a mango lassi. He also likes “chicka-ma-tikka-man-sala.”  Don’t fight him on this. I want him to say it like that forever.  So here’s my attempt to win his heart with a Mango Lassi in popsicle form!

These pops are super creamy thanks to the Greek yogurt and oh so refreshing/healthy!  Now…I’m thinking my next popsicle I make should be boozy cuz I want one geared around my adult beverage tastes. What are we thinking? I’ve already done Boozy Peach Pops and Pina Coladas. How about Mojitos? Jack & Cokes? Moscow Mules? Let’s brainstorm!

And we’re off!

Gather your ingredients. I added a little bit of lime & some kosher salt to give it a flavor boost!

They’re not pictures, but they’re important!

Mix it up in a blender.

Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds.

Chill!! Insert popsicle sticks after about an hour. Chill more! DONE.

Unmold.

EAT (with your swim goggles on, naturally).

and….ENJOY. I think we could totally eat these for breakfast this summer. I think we will.

Mango Lassi Popsicles

makes 10

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped mango (about 2 large mangoes)
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup water

Process all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Transfer mixture to popsicle molds, freeze for 1 hour and then put the popsicle sticks in place. Transfer popsicles back into the freezer and freeze until firm, 4-5 hours.

  • Mango lassi is THE BEST drink. At the local Indian when I was at university I’d drink so much lassi I wouldn’t have space for food…now, my local supermarket sells it in huge bottle. Amazing.

    I LOVE mango! Totally my fave fruit to use for smoothies and anything frozen like mango-banana ‘ice cream’ and I love that you used it with honey and lime and cardamom. Delish, Tracey!

    These look amazing! Unfortunately I’m with you on the only-eating-popsicles-when-it’s-hot-out thing so I’ll have to bookmark these for a few months. My suggestion for a boozy pop – maybe an Irish cream/ Baileys combo or some kind of brandy alexander popsicle – something creamy & boozy.

    Tracy, I just wanted to tell you that the lassi we drink here in India is SOO different to what you drink in the states. Ours is way more watered down and more often than not, blended with spices and salt to beat the summer heat :)

      I’m sure it is! So much gets lost in translation. Hope to make it to India one day!

        Oh that would be wonderful! Please do get in touch in case you do decide. I would love to help you plan or show you around New Delhi :)

    Now that’s what I call fun and tasty! I think I would like peach/orange and rum in my grown-up popsicle. Or maybe strawberry puree with chunks of peach and rum of course.

  • What a delicious looking treat! I agree that a mojito popsicle would be amazing.

  • Daaaang! LOVE this idea! And the pic of Cooper hiding behind the popsicle is so cute.

  • June 5, 2013

    LOVE mangos and I LOVE these pop! The yogurt and honey sound so good and healthy too! Make me want to go somewhere tropical!

  • June 5, 2013

    That’s it?! That seems so easy and delicious!

  • June 5, 2013

    Cooper is too adorable! <3
    Now I want mango popsicles. And googles. And it's almost winter here, but I don't care. :D

  • June 5, 2013

    Yes! These sound delicious! And, PLEASE make a Moscow Mulesicle. That sounds filthy but it’s bound to be amazing.

    “chicka-ma-tikka-man-sala”
    OMG. That is the best.

  • Cooper is adorable! I have been eating mango alot lately, need to turn them into lassi ASAP.

  • June 5, 2013

    My oh my! My life has just been forever altered by eating my first mango last week. Will give these pops a try asap!

  • June 5, 2013

    Muddled Raspberry Moscow Mules. This was my favourite cocktail served in a gold goblet at my favourite bar in London Circus. While they still have so many awesome cocktails on the menu, as well as fire eaters, acrobats and burlesque dancers, I was heartbroken when they took this one off the menu. I think it wold make a fantastic frozen treat.

  • June 5, 2013

    What a great idea! I totally need to buy some popsicle molds because these look awesome. I love Indian food, especially chika ma tikka mansala!

    They look tasty but I must admit I am not a fan of mango, I think it taste like dirt ;)

    I think a grayhound would be tasty, grapefruit vodka YUM!!!!

  • June 5, 2013

    Looks amazing! I had to head to the store right after reading this and now I’m waiting for my freezer to do it’s magic. Cant wait to taste it!

    Looks so yummy! I will have to make them. How about Watermelon Mojito? My pregnant brain is craving watermelon like nobody’s business. Then I will have a boozy popsicle to look forward to for next summer.

  • Love this with the cardamom, lime and MANGO. Such a sweet treat to beat the heat (I’m a poet and all that…). Lovely paletas, Tracy!

  • June 5, 2013

    I might have to get a popsicle mold just so I can make these!

    Tracey! When I was in El Salvador a few months ago, there was a super awesome popsicle store (for real..that is all they sold) that had all kinds of boozy popsicles! I LOVED the mojito ones and the tequila sunrise were also fantastic. I heard that the baliey’s (and milk i assume) was good as well. This store seemed to have almost any classic drink in popsicle form. But basically, everything was delish. How can you really go wrong with boozy popsicles???

  • June 5, 2013

    You should record Cooper and play it on the next podcast.
    I think a Mojito pop would be delicious. Maybe blackberry Mojito.

  • June 5, 2013

    Cooper is just the cutest. I want to squeeze him.

    • Tracy
      June 5, 2013

      I squeeze him. OFTEN.

    Mango Lassis are so delicious as is anything in popsicle form. Yum yum yum! I’m going popsicle crazy over here too, popsicles are the bomb.com!

  • My favorite popsicles are the ones that are kind of creamy/fruity, not so much icy, so these look PERFECT!!

  • June 5, 2013

    I just saw an awesome recipe on mango pudding and now this! We love popsicles here. And the heat is tremendous these days. Maybe it’s time I get myself a good popsicle mould.

  • June 6, 2013

    I hate Indian food. Alas, it is my British husband’s favorite. I do love a mango lassi though. I usually just end up drinking one with my cheesy naan. It’s good enough for me. I wish they came spiked, though.

  • June 6, 2013

    Yum yum yum!

    My favorite sorbet to make is Campari Grapefruit – I imagine it would make a fantastic popsicle. Recipe from David Lebovitz.

    I’ve been wanting to get a popsicle mold for a long time, but now you’ve convinced me. I can’t wait to try these! So delicious!

  • Ashley

    Yes and yes to a moscow mule popsicle, that sounds so refreshing. :)

  • June 6, 2013

    Oh these look delicious, it’s so hot at the moment I could do with one of these right now!

  • June 6, 2013

    These popiscles look sooo refreshing!! :) And healthy at the same time! What a great idea :)

  • June 6, 2013

    these look fabulous! totally trying this tonight.

    for your boozy popsicle, maybe a play on an Aviation cocktail?

  • June 6, 2013

    Love the way he says chicken tikka masala lol! So looking forward to making popsicles this summer…this one looks great

    Perfect timing on this – kids are almost out of school and we’re going sugar free for the summer. I skipped the cardamom (ick!) and the honey and they turned out super yum!

    Have you seen People’s Pops book? They have several boozy recipes, 2 with moonshine!

  • June 10, 2013

    I just got my wisdom teeth out and am soooo sick of soup. These are going to make tomorrow so much better! Perfect timing-thanks :)

  • Anne Marie

    Brilliant! Thanks for the nice recipe… Only had 1 mango, but it was just about enough to make 6 big popsicles (with me having a little taste of the non-freezed “smoothie” too). UHM… Can’t wait till they’re frozen!
