There's been piles of delicious mangos on sale at the grocery store lately, so naturally, I've been taking advantage. After enjoying a few fresh mangos, it occurred to me that I could make mango lassis... not to mention mango lassi popsicles. And so. Here we are.
Mango Lassi Popsicles (makes 10 popsicles in this mold)
2 ripe mangos, peeled and chopped (about 2 cups)
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1.5 cups plain yogurt
honey or sugar, as desired
Purée the chopped mango with the cardamom. Set aside. In a separate bowl*, sweeten the yogurt with honey or sugar. (I used 2 tablespoons of honey for a mild amount of sweetness.) Fill the popsicle mold, alternating spoonfuls of the puréed mango and the yogurt mixture. Gently swirl with a popsicle stick, then insert the popsicle sticks and freeze until set.
*of course, if you prefer a well-blended popsicle, just blend everything together in one bowl instead. I like keeping the mango and yogurt separate, so that each bite's a little different, but either way works!
