Yet again I have (almost) survived a scorching Caribbean summer without buying an ice cream maker.
I think we can all agree that this is a formidable act of willpower on my part.
To reward myself, and make the boiling hot days a little easier, I compromised and got some popiscle molds (or, as I like to call them, ice lolly molds).
They’re silicone, BPA-free and in bright, cheery primary colours. I feel a bit like a school mom when using – which is weird and a teeny bit uncomfortable because I don’t have kids.
Regardless, you don’t have to be a kid – or a parent – to enjoy the wonders of making your own ice lollies.
I started with these easy, healthy mango treats…but I’m working up to something much more decadent, watch this space.
NB: My popiscle molds hold roughly 1/2 cup liquid, if yours are larger you’ll need to adjust the quantities below.
Mango Creamiscles (makes 4 in conventional popsicle trays)
- 1 large, ripe mango, peeled and diced
- 1 small ripe banana
- 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
- Blend everything together until smooth.
- Pour into popiscle moulds and freeze for 6-8 hours until firm.
