These super healthy Mango Orange Ice Pops made with fresh mango puree, orange juice, and vanilla yogurt are a great kid-friendly summer snack any time of day!
Summer is here and I’m so ready to just relax and kick back with the kiddos. It is the perfect time to send the kids to play and not worry about getting dirty – that’s part of the fun of summer! And let’s face it, there’s nothing more quintessentially summer than ice pops! These are so easy to make, and super fun to make with the kids. The creaminess of the yogurt with the sweet mango and orange is just divine!
These Mango Orange Ice Pops are a play on the Orange Mango Smoothie recipe I made recently. With Ethan’s food sensory issues, getting him to drink a smoothie is painful. But an ice pop goes down no problem! You’re going to love how delicious and simple these are!
But the best part, honestly, is how healthy they are. Like the smoothies, they’re packed with fresh fruit, juice and yogurt. It’s a nice healthy treat for my kids, and they think they’re being spoiled! Full of vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants, I’ve even let my kids eat these at breakfast time in the summer (Shhhh! Don’t tell my mom!)
Mango Orange Ice Pops
- 2 bananas sliced
- 2 oranges peeled and divided into segments
- 2 whole mangos cut into pieces
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt optional
- Add all of the ingredients to a blender and process until smooth.
- To make pops, pour the mixture into a mold and freeze until solid.
Don’t these just look divine? Of course you could play around with the flavors if you like. Mango and pineapple would be delicious also, or add some strawberries to the mixture – whatever your family enjoys. What’s your favorite fruit combinations?
