Before we dive into this super delicious and easy mango popsicle recipe, let’s take a look at the main ingredients, mango, and papaya. These are two of our favorite fruits and they go together perfectly.

Papaya

Papaya is a tropical, super fruit that comes from Central America and southern Mexico. It has a mild, sweet flavor and is packed with rich vitamins and antioxidants.

Mango

Mango is a tropical stone fruit that is also high in antioxidants and vitamin c. Peak mango season runs from May through September. However, you can find them in grocery stores year-round. They are one of the most consumed fruits in the world and have the perfect, juicy soft texture that makes for a creamy mango popsicle. We love using mango in our cocktail recipes too.

How to Make Papaya Mango Popsicles

This is an easy recipe for mango ice pops using fresh mangoes! There is no added sugar to this recipe and they’re made with simple ingredients.

What You’ll Need:

Blender

Popsicle Mold

Wooden Popsicle Sticks

Liquid Measuring Cup with a Spout

Ingredients

Here are the basic ingredients to make this mango popsicle recipe:

Fresh Mango – Make sure you get ripe mangos to make a good mango puree. Also, a ripe mango is a sweet mango!

Ginger – Fresh ginger works. Ginger adds a little spicy kick to the popsicles.

Papaya Juice – If you can’t find pure papaya juice you can use orange juice or pineapple juice.

Vanilla Extract – Pure vanilla extract.

Corn Starch – Helps keep them less icy when frozen. It’s our secret ingredient to a creamy texture when making frozen treats.

Candied Ginger (optional) – You can add this in and it will give them popsicles a chewy texture.

Directions

First, cut a fresh mango into cubes. Here is a video showing the easiest way to cut a mango.

Next, add all of the ingredients into a high powered blender and blend on high until they are fully combined and the texture is like a thick juice. You can also use a food processor to make the popsicle puree.

Pour the mango mixture into a popsicle mold and add the popsicle sticks. 

Freeze overnight until the popsicles are fully frozen.

If you prefer to add in a slice of candied ginger to the popsicles do that before freezing. This adds an even spicier flavor and a chewy texture in the middle.

How to Unmold a Popsicle

This part can be a little tricky and the last thing you want is broken popsicles after you have waited all night for them to freeze! 

The best way to remove the popsicles is to run the bottom of the mold under warm water for about 2 minutes. 

Gently pull on the popsicle stick to remove. If it still feels hard to get out, run the mold underwater again. It will come out pretty easily when it’s ready.

The Best Popsicle Mold

I use these molds often and really like them. Buy extra wooden sticks for it! You can also use a silicone popsicle mold too.
