mango & toasted coconut popsicles

Whenever I make popsicles, I feel a bit like a mixologist – there’s no baking science to worry about; instead I layer flavors and taste as I go (as you can imagine, the dishes pile up accordingly!). Flecked with lime zest and toasted coconut, these are the best mango pops I’ve tasted.

A squeeze of lime juice balances the sweet mango and coconut milk adds to the tropical feel; these pops are vacation on a stick!

Mango & Toasted Coconut Popsicles | Tutti Dolci

Mango & Toasted Coconut Popsicles
3 cups mango, pureed
2 cups light coconut milk
6 Tbsp liquid Sugar In The Raw or agave nectar
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 1/2 lime
pinch of salt
2 Tbsp white rum
2/3 cup toasted sweetened flaked coconut, divided

Combine mango puree, coconut milk, Sugar In The Raw, lime zest, lime juice, salt, and rum in a food processor or blender; process until smooth and combined. Fold in 1/3 cup toasted coconut. Fill each mold with 1/3 cup mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch of space at the top of each mold.

Let freeze one hour before inserting popsicle sticks and sprinkling reserved toasted coconut over rim of each popsicle; continue to freeze until completely firm, 4 to 6 hours more. Run molds under hot water 30 to 45 seconds before unmolding, or let stand at room temperature 5 minutes. Wrap popsicles individually in plastic wrap and store in the freezer.

    I reaaally thought that those were potatoes and couldn’t figure out why they weren’t mentioned in the recipe and why none of the other commenters had asked what was up with the potatoes.

    I did not know there are mangoes other than the red and green ones. 😉

    These look awesome! Fun flavors, too.

    I LOVE mangoes and I made mango popsicles this summer too before I got allergic to mango this summer. It’s a sad story as I cannot eat mango anymore… I can almost taste this. Wish I could try eating mango one more time… grrr!
