More mangos! It appears that mango season is going really well this year.
Guess what? Mr. RWB ordered me a new toy…a popsicle maker! I’m so excited! Recently when I was shopping Sprouts, they were doing a tasting for a new local Austin popsicle company: local fruit, local coffee and local herbs. They were awesome! My favorites were their watermelon mint flavor and coffee flavor. Knowing Mr. RWB I decided to get the coffee. It was a big hit but in looking at the ingredients, yes I could pronounce them all, it occurred to me that I should be able to make yummy popsicles.
First off, the kit says it takes an hour…it doesn’t. Even after 3 hours neither type were done (made a coffee one, coming soon!)
Second, with quality fruit no additional sugar is needed. These only contain 5 ingredients.
Third, these popsicles contain alcohol (1 ounce for 6 pops).
They were amazing and perfect on a hot day!
Ingredients (makes 6 pops):
1 medium sized mango, peeled and pit removed
1 lime, juiced
5 – 6 mint leaves
1 oz. coconut rum
½ cup of water
- Place mango, mint, lime juice, rum and water into a blender and pulse until smooth.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for several hours, preferably overnight.
