Whether you prefer to call them ice lollies, ice pops or popsicles, these frozen treats are the perfect dessert for summer. I love to make popsicles, and have previously shared my favorite Lime Popsicles and Orange Popsicles.

Mango juice: Use your favorite store bought mango juice, or make your own by blending or pureeing diced mango chunks in a food processor. You can also use frozen mango!
Lime juice: Freshly squeezed lime or store bought lime juice is a great source of acidity in the popsicles. This helps to balance out the sweetness from the added honey. You can also use lemon instead.

Combine lime juice, mango juice and honey in a mixing bowl or measuring jug. Pour the liquid into popsicle molds, and transfer them to a freezer.
Freeze the mango popsicles until they are solid, at least 4 hours or ideally overnight. Remove them from the molds, and serve immediately while they are frozen.
- Silicone popsicle molds are really easy to use. Frozen ice pops slide right out of these, much more effortlessly than if you were to use metal or plastic molds.
- If you're using wooden popsicle sticks, you should freeze the popsicles for about 30 minutes to allow them to partially freeze before you insert the sticks. The sticks will then stay in the middle of the ice lollies.
Mango ice pops are best served as a snack, treat or dessert in the summer. If you're looking for other refreshing food or drink items, here are some of my favorites:
- Cold food: Strawberry and Rhubarb Sorbet, Lime Popsicles, Chilled Swedish Blueberry Soup
- Cold drinks: Iced Caramel Latte, Mint Iced Tea
Mango + chili: Add the mango juice, lime juice and honey to a blender with some diced chili. Blend until you have a smooth puree, and freeze this to make popsicles. The chili will add a kick of spice to the popsicles, making them an excellent adult option.
Mixed fruits: Feel free to combine the mango juice with other juices, such as orange juice, tropical juice or pineapple juice.
You can store the popsicles in a freezer for up to 8 months. Make sure that your ice pop molds are sealed, or the popsicles might develop freezer burn.
Popsicles are really convenient to keep on hand. I love to have some available in the freezer, and you can easily make another batch as soon as you've eaten them all.
Keep in mind that your mango popsicles will melt easily when they are removed from the freezer, and that they should be served immediately.
Frequently asked questions
Fruity popsicles are the most popular flavors. You can make these from any fruit juice, such as orange juice, mango juice, cranberry juice or apple juice.
Popsicles filled with fruit juice are hydrating and a great way to enjoy fruit. These refined sugar free popsicles are healthy compared to many store bought ice pops, but as with anything, they should only be eaten in moderation.
Adding sugar to ice pops will greatly improve their texture, by making them almost softer and less ice cube-like. You can use refined sugar, or a sweetener like honey, agave nectar or even maple syrup for the same effect.
