I need to admit something – I am not a big fan of popsicles. I prefer my frozen treats full of cream and sugar. With frozen yogurt being an exception but it’s also not very healthy. Last week it was really hot and humid and I craved something icy to cool down. And although I would never choose a popsicle over an ice cream cone if I had a choice, she hear Mango Orange Chili Popsicles were an excellent way to feel better in the heat.
My grandma recently gave me a bag of 10 mangos so I’ve been trying to use them up in creative ways and these Mango Orange Chili Popsicles were part of my experiments. They are super easy to make, just bl no mango with a bit of orange juice, add finely chopped chilies and freeze. I love mango and chili together in mango salads. In fact, are savoury popsicles a thing? I was thinking of adding some crunchy red onions, cilantro, peanuts, fish sauce to the mixture and making a Thai mango salad popsicle. Or would it be too weird? If chili isn’t your thing then just omit the pepper and you’ll get a wonderful and healthy Mango Orange Popsicle. I did not add any extra sugar to the mixture but a bit of maple syrup or sugar or honey can be added. The first time I made these Mango Orange Chili Popsicles the mango I used was really sweet, so the end result was wonderfully sweet and spicy. When I made the recipe the next time the mango was more sour, so the popsicles turned out tangy and refreshing. And if you love mangos and strawberries together try Strawberry Mango Popsicles from The Fit Cookies, they are delicious.
And here’s a fun video of me making these popsicles – check it out!

- 1 teaspoon finely chopped chili pepper
Peel and dice mango.

Add chopped chili pepper and mix.
Pour the mixture into 4 popsicle molds. 1/4 cup each.

Use more or less chili if you prefer spicier or less spicy popsicles.
I found that the longer the popsicles are in the freezer, the spicier they get.
