It’s been ridiculously hot and dry here in Florida. We’ve barely gotten any rain and there is a pretty serious drought right now which makes it even more unbearable to live here! These strawberry mango pops are the perfect snack for escaping the heat! My husband has been on a popsicle kick lately and I’ve always wanted to try making our own, healthy popsicles using real fruit.  I used Splenda to sweeten these so they could be sugar-free, but you can always use regular sugar if you wanted to.

These popsicles came out perfectly! I can’t wait to create more using different fruits and flavors! Stay tuned for more popsicle recipes this summer! :)

Strawberry Mango Pops

Makes 6 large popsicles


– 1 heaping cup diced mango, fresh or frozen

– 1 heaping cup whole strawberries, fresh or frozen

– 1 cup skim milk

– 1/2 cup water* (you may not need as much water if you use fresh fruit)

– 1 tbs. Splenda or regular sugar

– Juice 1 lime


1. Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 6 hours.

– I used frozen fruit for this recipe, so I needed more liquid to get the mixture smooth enough. I added water to do this, but you may find that if you use fresh fruit, just the milk will suffice. If you want to use fresh fruit, I recommend just using milk, check to see if the mixture is smooth enough and then only add the water if you need it.

– Don’t own popsicle molds? No fear! You can also make these using small Dixie cups and popsicle sticks. You can find both of these items at your grocery store!

– This recipe made 6 large popsicles using these popiscle molds that I purchased on Amazon.
