Tropical Mango Dreamsicle

With their tart, sorbet-like outside and smooth center, I love classic orange creamsicles. As I continue my popsicle obsession, I decided to experiment with my own variation. Using mangoes and lime, I made creamsicles with a tropical twist!

The tartness of the lime zest perfectly complements the sweetness of the mango and the creaminess of the vanilla ice cream. Replicating the ice cream center of a creamsicle proved extremely difficult (believe me I tried!) so instead, I opted for a swirl effect by alternating layers of mango-lime puree and ice cream.

If you love the flavor of fresh tropical fruit and want to learn how to make these exotic creamsicles,

Mango-Lime Creamsicle

Ingredients

2 large mangoes
2 limes
1 1/2 cups of store-bought ice cream
1/4 cup sugar

Directions

  1. Zest and juice the limes, reserving the zest and juice in a bowl.
  2. Dice the mangoes into small pieces: Cut the mango in half lengthwise. With a small sharp knife cut, score the flesh both horizontally and vertically. Pushing on the skin of mango, flip it inside out and cut off the flesh. Add sugar and mangoes to the bowl with lime zest and juice. Stir to combine.
  3. Place the mixture in a blender and puree until smooth.
  4. Fill the popsicle molds alternating layers of the mango puree with layers of the store bought ice cream.
  5. Place in freezer and wait patiently.

Makes 6 popsicles.

What if you used two different molds? Freeze the ice cream (extra cold so it doesn't melt when being transferred!) on a pop stick in small mold, then pull it out and put it in a bigger mold partially filled with the fruit blend? I have no idea if molds even come in different sizes or if this is something you already tried, but it was the first idea that popped in my head.Other than that the recipe looks delish - i LOVE mangoes!
