It’s the end of popsicle week aaand I’m also away in Amsterdam so this’ll be a super quick post!
First of all just gotta vent my Brexit anger for a short moment and say that I’m extremely shocked at the turnout and that I was firmly in the remain camp…. Now that’s done we can talk about popsicles cos that will distract me
These sweet, sour and spicy guys are probably my favourite out of all the ones I’ve made over the past few years. The mango is bringing some fibre to the game as well as the natural sweetness so these are decidedly better for you than any kind of popsicle you’ll ever find in a supermarket. I’m also really into spicy lemonade and gingerale, hence the other ingredients.
Now the trendy thing to do here would be to add turmeric but I prefer turmeric in curry/soup instead of in drink-type things. If you want to add some though, go for it – probably about ½ a tsp would be a good starting place then taste and add more if needed!
- 300g mango flesh (this was about 2 small mangoes for me)
- ½ a thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled + grated
- juice of 1 to 2 lemons (to taste)
- ¼ to ½ tsp cayenne
- Add the ginger and mango to a blender with the juice of 1 lemon and ¼ tsp of lemon. Blend until smooth. Taste and add more lemon juice or cayenne to your liking. Blend again then pour into popsicle moulds and freeze for at least 4 hours.
