Apparently I’m on a mango kick. Today’s recipe is really yummy. I mean, really. Mango berry frozen yogurt pops? Hello?! Of course, if you don’t have mangoes (or your husband is allergic to them), you can easily switch out the fruit for any combination of yummy frozen yogurt goodness.
Cultured foods like yogurt are really good for you.
Fermented foods have enzymes that aid in digestion, priobiotic goodness, and are high in vitamins and nutrients.
But here’s the thing. I still have a hard time getting a lot of cultured and fermented foods in my diet… I am still trying to get used to the flavor. I don’t really like vinegary tasting things (although I’ve come a looooong way, and am slowly learning to like them.) That’s why I love yogurt. Who doesn’t like tangy yogurt? And who doesn’t love frozen yogurt? Weird people, that’s who!
Now, I’m not talking the sugar-laden (or HFCS laden) yogurts that are full of other ingredients. Ideally yogurt is one of those foods that you can make yourself. But if you are lazy like me, at least choose a high quality yogurt. Raw yogurt is great, but most store bought stuff will be pasteurized. Organic is important to avoid hormones or other yucky stuff. And of course go with a FULL FAT plain yogurt.
These frozen yogurt popsicles are sweet enough to feel like a treat but still full of healthy frozen yogurt goodness. Perfect for these last few weeks of summer. Both my husband and little girl loved them. (And I may have eaten more than either of them. Oh well, it’s a treat with absolutely no guilt.)
- 1 ripe mango (go here to get tips on choosing the best mango!)
- 5 - 7 medium strawberries (definitely organic)
- 2 cups full fat yogurt
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 - 2 Tbs raw honey
- Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor
- Pulse a couple of times (for a chunkier popsicle) or blend (for a smoother popsicle) until well combined. (Note: You could stop here and have some the best tasting yogurt on your hands. I won't judge you if you don't make it to the next step.)
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. The number of popsicles will depend on the size of your molds.
Of course you can also do it old school like me and use little dixie cups and popsicle sticks. They taste just as good.
