Orange-Mango Popsicles: Sweet Summer Treat With a Veggie Twist

Written by Sheila Emery Murphy on .

Popsicles are the quintessential summer treat. However, many major brands sweeten their pops with high fructose corn syrup and mix in artificial colors & flavors – no need for that! Delicious mangoes, oranges, carrots and ginger naturally sweeten these flavorful pops and provide a vibrant color courtesy of Mother Nature herself. These pops – with a hidden veggie twist – are made with real food. A treat moms and kids both love.

 

What you need…

1 mango, peeled & chopped

Juice of one orange

1 cup carrots, shredded *

1 inch piece of ginger, peeled & chopped *

12oz water

6 ice cubes

 

What to do…

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. Enjoy!

*If using a standard blender -- in lieu of a high power blender -- it is helpful to chop ginger and use shredded carrots to allow for a smoother blend.
