These cool Mango Key Lime Coconut Popsicles have tropical flavors that are sure to please! No special equipment needed!
Here in Tucson popsicles are a much deserved treat to beat the heat. It is supposed to get up to 112° today. I cannot complain though because I would much rather put up with 100° temps than below zero any day.
I should also note that it is a dry heat. I personally can handle a dry heat over humidity any day. It’s like going into a sauna vs. a steam room. Tucson is like a sauna.
No Special Equipment Needed
The reason you aren’t going to need any special equipment for these popsicles is because I foolishly got rid of my popsicle molds years ago. I bought them at a thrift store and never used them. They took up space for years before I cleaned out my cupboards.
Instead of buying more molds, I thought I would first create a popsicle recipe and see how much I would use popsicle molds. I am not a big dessert person, and gravitate more towards dark chocolate to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Not to mention, I can always make vegan ice cream, which is just as easy. I actually let these melt a bit and I added dark rum. Now that is my kind of treat!
For these easy three ingredient popsicles I decided to use bath cups and popsicle sticks. You just blend the ingredients and pour the mixture into bath cups. Put a popsicle stick in the center and freeze. Easy, right! Since the mixture is so thick the popsicle sticks stand up on their own.
If for some reason your popsicle sticks don’t stand up on their own, you can always prop them up with the roof of the freezer. Just put them on a shelf or container so that they hit the roof of the freezer, and voilà, they stand up!
Then, to release the popsicles, you put them in a shallow container with hot water. They release easily. That way you aren’t picking off little bits of paper that drive you crazy!
I got the idea for these Mango Key Lime Coconut Popsicles from the way we eat fruit here in Tucson. We squeeze key lime juice on many different kinds of fruit; like pineapple, watermelon, and mango.
Key lime adds a sweet citrus flavor. It is sweeter than other limes. It is used in Mexican Fruit Salad, which is one of my favorite ways to eat fruit.
Other Easy Desserts:
- Banana, Chocolate and Peanut Butter Dessert Pizza
- Mango Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl Pizza – this I actually have in the breakfast category, but thought I’d include it here since it is a cold treat!
- Vegan White Russian Ice Cream
