Ingredients

  • 1 heaping cup of fresh , ripe Mango (approximately 1 large mango)
  • 4 ripe Kiwi fruit+
  • 2 teaspoon fresh Ginger , peeled and finely diced
  • 1 ½ teaspoon fresh Mint , finely chopped
  • 1 cup Limeade , organic or naturally flavored and sweetened*

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until fully combined and smooth.
  2. Pour into popsicle molds. If mold has a cover: cover with accompanying mold top, and insert popsicle sticks. If mold does not have a top: place a piece of foil to cover the top of the mold, make small slits in the foil with a sharp knife in the middle of each individual popsicle well the width of the popsicle stick; insert the popsicle sticks. Place mold in the freezer until fully frozen. To release the popsicles, run hot water over the outside of the popsicle mold for a few seconds until they can be removed (do not run the water too long or they will begin to melt).

Recipe Notes

+A quick Kiwi tip: instead of peeling, cut a kiwi fruit horizontally (across the middle) and scoop the fruit out with a spoon.

*When using prepared limeade or lemonade always choose an organic or naturally flavored and sweetened variety. The taste is natural and any sweetness only compliments the lime or lemon flavor rather than overtaking it with sharp artificial flavors.
