Ingredients needed to make Homemade Mango Popsicles

  • Mangoes: Ripe, juicy mangoes are the star of the show in this recipe. They add a sweet, tropical flavor and a beautiful orange color. If you can’t find fresh mangoes, you can use frozen mango chunks or canned mango puree as a substitute.
  • Sugar: The sugar syrup adds sweetness to the popsicles and helps to create a smoother texture. If you prefer, you can use honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar instead of sugar.
  • Water: The water is used to dissolve the sugar and create the sugar syrup. You can use coconut water or any other type of liquid in place of water if you like.
  • Lime juice: Freshly squeezed lime juice adds a tangy, citrus flavor to the popsicles. If you don’t have lime juice, you can use lemon juice or any other type of citrus juice instead.
  • Tajin powder: Tajin powder is a Mexican spice blend made with chili powder, lime juice, and salt. It adds a slightly spicy and tangy flavor to the popsicles. If you don’t have tajin powder, you can substitute it with chili powder or paprika or skip it.
  • Tajin sauce: Tajin sauce is a thinner version of tajin powder, which can be used to drizzle over the popsicles for an extra burst of flavor. If you don’t have tajin sauce, you can substitute it with lime juice mixed with a little bit of honey or skip it.
  • Some other optional ingredients you could add to this recipe include:
  • Coconut milk: This would add a creamy texture and a tropical flavor to the popsicles.
  • Ginger: Fresh grated ginger would add a spicy kick to the popsicles and help to balance the sweetness.
  • Mint: Fresh mint leaves would add a refreshing and cooling element to the popsicles.
  • Vanilla extract: A small amount of vanilla extract would add a subtle sweetness and aroma to the popsicles.

Overall, the great thing about making homemade popsicles is that you can experiment with different flavors and ingredients to find your perfect combination. Have fun and get creative!
