Is that a popsicle in your hand or are you just happy to see me?
I know, that is not how the saying goes, like at all, but as a female that whole popsicle in pants would 100 percent not work and the latter is just so much more realistic. Okay maybe it wouldn’t work for the opposite sex either because the frozen treat-on-a-stick would probably melt. Therefore, you would need to replace the phrase ‘popsicle in your pants’ with ‘puddle in yo pants’ and now we’re talking. A little more gender neutral.
Anyways…. Tomato, Potato (thanks p)
But alas, who wouldn’t be happy if they were holding a popsicle? Especially this Mango Avacado Lassi Breakfast Pop…… dizzurt before 9AM (unless you’re a sloth and wake up in the afternoon) Um, yes & definitely yes.
Also. My A/C unit is being a total turd-nugget while I type this and I’ve already gone through three of these popsicles. #nailedit #butnotreally #becauseimsweatyandgross #andthereisyogurtallovermykeyboard #butiguessthatiswhyGodgaveustongues #tolickthekeyboard #duetoovereating #becauseitshot ##pwnedlikean00b
A hack if you aren’t the proud owner of popsicle molds. Use a plastic cup and a stick! That is usually my go to frozen treat mold but I decided to fancify these babies up just for you.
you can’t totally taste the avocado so don’t bug. it’s just super pretty, and makes the mango mix extra creamy. and people always say it’s a “good fat” whatever that actually means. i’ll take it.
i found the easiest way to fill these molds was to fill a ziplock bag (or pastry bag) and cut a dime sized hole at the bottom corner and just pipe each layer in. mostly because I wanted distinct layers, no gloopy mix-y mess. though it doesn’t really matter which way you do it. i just happen to take pictures of my food (i’m one of those…… obviously……) and so wanted even(ish) layers.
have no avocado on hand? you’re screwed!
jokes, you aren’t. just add an extra 1/2 cup of mango OR perhaps some frozen/thawed berries? the texture works. it won’t be as creamy as the avocado (actually it definitely won’t be) but don’t let that deter you from making these.
- 4 cups non fat greek yogurt
- 5 tbsp honey
- ¼ tsp ground tumeric
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1½ - 2 cups fresh or frozen and thawed mango (about 2 mangoes), cut into ½" pieces
- ½ cup avocado(or about 1 avocado) cut into smaller chunks
- First in a food processor add 4 cups greek yogurt, 4 tbsp honey, turmeric, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
- Blend together until everything is mixed. Place into a piping bag or a bowl to spoon into popsicle molds.
- Next, using the same food processor (you don't need to clean it out if you don't want to) add your mango and avocado pieces. Add your honey.
- Process until fruit is completely smooth. Place into a different piping bag.
- Next very carefully pipe layers of yogurt onto bottom of your popsicle mold, followed by a layer of mango/avocado and then another layer of yogurt. repeat this process until molds are filled to the top.
- Cover molds with plastic wrap (or if they have a cover) and place into freezer for 4-6 hours.
- In order to remove popsicle out of molds once frozen, place mold under warm water for about 30-45 seconds or until your popsicle is easily able to slide out (but not like so easy where it becomes just yogurt .....)
