Are your kids like mine, always rummaging through the refrigerator, especially after school? They love an ice cream treat any time, any where? You feel disappointed if after dinner you suddenly crave for a nice cold dessert and there’s none left as you hadn’t done your grocery shopping this week? Or just those parents who don’t like filling the kids’ tummies with too much store bought food as we really can’t understand half of what’s written on the label even if it was just the regular ice cream tub with an unbelievably long expiry date? Well, with homemade ice creams you can be assured the expiry dates are way shorter.
Whichever the case may be, its actually very easy to make your own popsicles aka ice cream pops from scratch even if you only had a few ingredients, including yogurt, fresh fruits and some honey (optional).
Since its mango season here, and we are lucky to get lots of mango varieties locally, from Thailand, India and even Australia, there’s no reason why we can’t try this at home. Takes less than 10 mins to have everything done. Okay, maybe if you work slowly, give yourself an extra 10 minutes and you have a nice batch of frozen pops for the family.
If you own a Thermomix, you can even try making your own plain yogurt and use that as a culture for your next batch. Save time, save money.
So, do try this out, as these work great as bribes in my home, where the kids happily do a chore, or quickly finish up a meal so there’s time for an extra treat after dinner. And when they come home from school, I’m sure they will dive straight for an ice pop, which I know for sure, what went into each and every one of it other than with lots of love.
Please leave me a comment if you have tried it so I know if you did enjoy it too!

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe If you love baking sourdough breads you will probably have a lot of discards from feeding and maintaining the starter. This is a really delicious way to use up all those discards. Believe me, I’ve tried making all kinds of discard recipes. From waffles, pancakes, biscuits, crumpets to bao zi...
