Come summer, it’s time to bring those popsicle moulds out. Because popsicles are always on the menu. Ice creams, ice pops, popsicles, milkshakes, summer definitely is the best season of the year.
There are million ways to make a popsicle at home and let’s talk about fruity popsciles here! Million possibilities again! Right? The best part of homemade popsicle is the layering. Choose any fruit of your choice, puree it and pour layers of it into the popsicle moulds. It’s natural for the layers to blend into one another a little bit, but that looks so gorgeous too right! I think it does.
During the weekly vegetable shopping, I saw a packet of unbelievably fresh strawberries. Unbelievable cause, they were really fresh in spite of the end of strawberry season here. I immediately picked the box and I knew I was making strawberry Popsicle that very moment. When I entered home, mangoes on the dining table were all ripped and calling me out with it’s aaaaamazing scent. The smell of ripe mangoes is…..amazingly wonderful. So with 2 best seasonal produce, strawberry mango Popsicle’s got done in a jiffy. Yes in a jiffy, so little prep work. Only thing that takes time is popsicles setting in the freezer.
In India the varieties of mangoes we get are mind blowing. So many of them, yet my heart always goes to Alphonso mangoes, the best quality mangoes that has right amount of sweetness and very very mild sour taste. It’s simply THE BEST MANGO VARIETY. And the meat in these mangoes – oh my god, the best I say! I definitely recommend you to use Alphonso mangoes while making mango Popsicle.
My kids love all frozen treats ice creams, Popsicle, everything. And this delicious 2 ingredients Popsicle has quickly become a favorite of theirs. Not just for the colors, but because it has 2 of their favorite fruits. Thank God they have some fruits that they eat without whining, complaining and making up stories as to why they don’t want to eat the fruits I give them.

Popsicle Mold – Popsicles are fun and you need a popsicle mold, a good one really. The shape of the mold can be anything, but when choosing I’d go for something that makes freezing the popsicles easy. First of all molds should hold it’s place and not shift while shutting the freezer door. And removing the frozen popsicle shouldn’t be hard too. I used this popsicle* mold which is my FAVORITE.
How long to freeze the popsicles?
Change it up
You can switch to another similar fruits in place of strawberries. Raspberries are delicious to use in a popsicle I would think.
Don’t struggle to get those popsicles out
When removing the Popsicles from the molds give them a few minutes to thaw around the edges so they come out easier. Don’t force them by pulling it hard, be gentle to get popsicles out neat.
Dip each mold in luke warm water for 10 seconds or less and then try pulling it gently. Popsicles should come out neat.
