The more incredible tropical mango coconut popsicles. These are creamy treats with a nice coconut almond crunch.
My whole family is addicted to mangoes. Mangoes are bought in bulk in our house and there were a few times where we purposely incorporated mango into every meal of the day. Is it a little weird? I guess so. But I really wouldn’t have it any other way!
For this recipe, I used champagne (Ataúlfo) mangoes because that is what I had on-hand, but regular mangoes would work just as well. The flavor of the Ataúlfo is, in my opinion, more delicate, but more sweet than your average mango. It is less fibrous too, which is beneficial for popsicles and even making smoothies. since they are smaller in size, you do end up having to use more than you would with a regular mango.
Please don’t mind the red sparkly nails. I really need to remember to do shots like this when my nails aren’t painted. I had to do a patriotic mani for my other blog.
Back to the mango coconut popsicles… the mango is bright and the coconut yogurt is so creamy, it melts in your mouth. My favorite part is the coconut almond and white chocolate. The almonds are very coconuty (is that word?) and give a really satisfying crunch. (I prefer to mix in large pieces of almond with a more ground almond for added texture) and paired with the white chocolate and mango, you get a super sweet, crunchy, summery moment of bliss. It’s phenomenal.
