These super easy Mango Popsicles are crazy simple to make—they have just two ingredients!—and they are completely refreshing. Plus, the Vitamin C, probiotics, and protein make them a nutritious snack for those little bellies!
My girls are totally obsessed with mango and I love how naturally creamy it is. Which means that when you blend it up into homemade popsicles, it has seriously delicious results—with hardly anything else added to the mix!
These are one of my favorite recipes for warmer weather, though we’ve been known to make a batch whenever we just need some brightness in our day.
Ingredients You Need
To make this popsicle recipe you’ll need:
- Fresh or frozen mango cubes
- Kefir or yogurt
TIP: I like using slightly thawed frozen mango in this recipe since then I can avoid having to do any cutting and it still blends easily. Easy!

- Measure out your ingredients. I like to let my frozen mango thaw for a few minutes so it’s a little soft.
- Add to a blender.
- Blend until super smooth.
- Portion into popsicle molds and freeze.
TIP: You can also serve the mixture from the blender as a smoothie!
Frequently Asked Questions
If I have kefir on hand, I use it here since I like the way its flavors mix with mango. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s basically a tangy drinkable yogurt with protein and a lot of probiotics. If you don’t have it, you can simply use yogurt. They work just about the same!
You can try using very ripe banana or check out my Strawberry Popsicles for a way to use berries.
You can use freshly diced mango or frozen mango. If using frozen, measure it out and let it thaw for a few minutes to soften up a bit before blending.
Best Popsicle Molds for Kids
We love the Zoku popsicle molds since I find them consistency easy to use and easy to clean. They have this traditional shape and also these mini pops, which are so perfect for babies and one year olds! The minis pop right out of the molds and are such a cute little size!
TIP: You can also use a small (bathroom-size) cup and a popsicle stick if you prefer.
Best Tips for Homemade Popsicles
- To make this dairy-free, use a nondairy yogurt drink or yogurt.
- You can substitute almost any other frozen fruit, but mango and banana are naturally the creamiest.
- To save space when storing popsicles in the freezer, remove from the base of the mold once frozen and store in a zip top freezer bag for up to 3 months.
- The mixture works as a smoothie straight out of the blender as an alternative.
