Sarah's Kitchen Creations: Mango Lassi Popsicles

by: Sarah Buckman

These are hands-down my favorite popsicles! Only three ingredients, frozen mango, yogurt, and a little maple syrup and it will change your life for the better. It's so good, you'll wish you doubled the batch.

What you'll need for Mango Lassi Popsicles:

2 cups Wyman's frozen mango

1 cup Seven Stars Farm organic original plain yogurt

2 T. Field Day maple syrup

popsicle molds / empty ice cube tray with toothpicks & saran wrap

blender / food processor 

Directions:

1) Measure 2 cups of frozen mango, 1 cup yogurt, and two tablespoons of maple syrup into blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. TIP: Try doubling the batch to have as a smoothie when you clean up.

2) Fill up your popsicle molds or ice cube trays with the blended mixture.

3) Once your popsicle mold is filled completely, place your popsicle sticks into mixture, cover and freeze for 12-24 hours. If you are using ice cube trays, place saran wrap over the entire tray and then stick toothpicks through saran wrap into mixture and place in freezer for 8-12 hours. TIP: The saran wrap is great for the ice cube tray popsicles because it keeps the toothpick in place so it doesn't topple during freezing. Once you're ready to eat the popsicle, just remove the saran wrap covering the individual popsicle, keeping the others covered for later.

4) Pop out of mold or tray and enjoy!

Mango Lassi

You can't go wrong with mango and yogurt. This recipe is adapted and named after the traditional Indian mango lassi drink that is a sweetened fruit yogurt milkshake often incorporates spices. Local Indian restaurants like KoohinoorHimalayan Chimney, and Sitara feature their own delicious mango lassi. It's a delicious accompaniment after spicy meals to help soothe your stomach.

Seven Stars Farm Yogurt

Seven Stars Farm plain yogurt is my all-time favorite yogurt, it is silky smooth and creamy. It is such a staple in my fridge, if I don't have it stocked, there is something wrong.The plain yogurt full fat yogurt works perfectly in this recipe and complements the tart mango flavor. I used to not be a huge plain yogurt fan but this yogurt converted me. If you are planning to use vanilla yogurt or other sweetened yogurt for this recipe, just leave out the maple syrup because it will become too sweet. Don't have maple syrup, don't even worry! You could leave the added sugar out of the recipe, use honey, or any other sweetener you have in your pantry.

All in all, you have to try this beautiful recipe!
