No Cook Mango Popsicle or Mango Bar
With summer right upon us, it’s time to enjoy all our favorite frozen treats! And what could be better than a homemade popsicles that are a perfect treat to beat the summer heat. Popsicle goes by many different names, some call it ice pops, some ice dollies and my cute little niece calls it ice lollies. Well, whatever you call them, ice cream on a stick reminds of endless childhood memories!
With only 6 ingredients and no cooking at all, you can prepare your own homemade popsicles that are so much better than the store bought ones, as you control what exactly goes in them. My family just love them – deliciously creamy and has an incredible melt-in-your-mouth texture.
I love mangoes as they remind me of summers and today’s recipe – “No Cook Mango Popsicle or Mango bar” is inspired from our childhood favorite mango bar or mango dolly. Back then, I could eat these bars/popsicle all day long and one was never enough for me. They were so good and mango flavor makes it all the more refreshing and delicious.
RECIPE DETAIL – Prepare the vanilla ice cream as shown below. Before advancing to the next step, make sure the homemade whipped cream is light and fluffy. Add milk and mix it slowly. DO NOT whisk it. Pour in your favorite ice cream molds and freeze overnight.
One word of advice – use wooden popsicle stick as they hold the ice cream pretty well. Use sweet mangoes for this recipe. The mangoes that I had had a slight sour taste to them so had to opt for a store bought mango puree.
Now this is a secret that I learnt from a chef – add melted white/milk chocolate to the mango pulp. White/milk chocolate adds a rich and special flavor to the mango pulp and it freezes well. These bar needs to be dipped twice in the mango-chocolate mix to attain a dark orange color.
Freeze your popsicles for another 3-4 hours! After the desired freezing time, give it a second dip, and freeze. They are ready!! So, what are you waiting for? Do try this rich and decadent frozen goodies that will cool you and your family off this summer! Taking this recipe to Sonal Gupta’s Semi homemade collective.
