This mango pops recipe is made with plain yogurt and pineapple. It is very easy to make, gluten free, low calorie, creamy and delicious.
Try and find mangoes that are fleshy and not with too much fiber. If you notice fibers in the blended cream go ahead and pass it through a sieve before freezing them.
The sugar in this recipe is optional but please keep in mind that things lose their sweetness when they are freezing.
Although I used molds for these you can make these in disposable cups without a problem. Simply make sure that you let the cream freeze for at least 30 minutes before you add the sticks. This will ensure that they are straight and not crooked.
Here are some fun pop molds that you can buy directly from Amazon:
