Who else craves ice cream all summer long? I most certainly do but know I shouldn’t be having it daily. So, I enjoy taking my favourite sweet treats and making them healthier.

This mango lassi popsicle is as delicious as it is nutritious. They are loaded with vitamin C, fibre and protein.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe mango
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (use vanilla if you want something sweeter)
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds

Directions:

  1. Cut mango into small pieces and blend together in blender or food processor. You want a pureed consistency.
  2. In a bowl mix together mango puree and chia seeds.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla extract. Pour into popsicle mold and pour mango mixture over top.
  4. Freeze for 4-5 hours and enjoy!

Option: Substitute Greek yogurt for plain kefir (to give your gut some extra love) OR coconut milk (the full fat, canned kind if you can’t have dairy).

Until next time,
