When it’s the hottest month of the year, there is nothing quite like a delicious, frozen ice pop. But who says the only way to enjoy one is by buying the sugary, artificially-flavored ice pops at the grocery store? Instead, cool down with Cricket Azima and The Creative Kitchen’s Coco-Mango Frozen Ice Pops, featured on Archetypes!
Not only are these pops lighter and more healthful than store-bought versions, they are easy to make with the whole family and pack a serving of fruit into the day’s diet! Between the creamy coconut and the succulent mango, your kids will be begging for more. Trust us, these pops are worth the brain freeze!
Family Friendly Flavor
- Make this treat together. Have the kids help with the mango and the mint! The mango is soft enough that even toddlers can successfully assist in the cutting, using a disposable plastic knife (with supervision, of course). And, the mint can be torn into tiny pieces by even the smallest of hands.
- Cool off the gang by handing these ice pops out as an after-camp snack!
- Freeze the mixture in ice-cube trays and serve in water, pineapple juice, or an adult cocktail.
- Experiment with various fruits and try making the recipe with peaches instead of mango.
