Mango coconut popsicles

Frozen popsicles was something that I use to have often while growing up. My friends and I used to collect what ever little allowance money we could and go to the local store and purchase several popsicle flavors and share them all. I remember this time as being really fun and care free while growing up. Such simple things I remember as a child that used to make me most happy back then.

Ever since going away to college I have been making frozen pospsicles. Because they don’t require any baking and they are so easy and versatile I tend to make frozen popsicles even in winter time. These mango and coconut popsicles are fabulous. Creamy, tasty and healthier for you. My kids will eat any type of flavor but these have turned out to be a favorite of theirs. Each time I make popsicles it takes me back to my childhood days. Such fun times.

I have teamed up with Wayfair to share one of my favorite recipes during childhood. This is one of my favorite treats to make that takes me back to those times. If you like to see more childhood recipes from other bloggers click here. Some of the recipes are really the bomb!

Rather than using heavy cream I always make my popsicles using coconut cream. I love this ingredient plus it keeps the popsicles vegan for those following such diet. All in all I think is better than using heavy cream but if you don’t mind heavy cream go for it.

I get my coconut cream from Trader Joes but you can get it from any other stores as well as Amazon.

I hope you like these mango and coconut popsicles. It is summer time so be sure I will be posting more popsicle recipes in the near future.

Enjoy!
