How to make Cherry mango Popsicles

Expert Tips

  • To make single color popsicles: Simply blend all of the ingredients together in the blender to make a single color popsicle. This is another option when you are short on time.
  • You can make these without added sugar. If you are concerned with adding sugar, omit and make as normal. They will be tart but still yummy.
  • Guar gum can be used to help stabilize frozen treats if needed. You can use ½ teaspoon for 12 ounces of popsicle mixture or about 6 molds.
  • Citric Acid will give the popsicles extra tartness. Just add a pinch to the mixture depending on how tart you like it.

FAQs

How long do homemade popsicles last?

These homemade frozen treats will last up to 3 months in the freezer.

You can store them in the molds. Another option is to take them out of the mold and place in a freezer bag.

This is the method I prefer so that it is easier for the kids to grab and go. Otherwise, each time someone wants one, they have to take out of the mold.

How to get popsicles out of the molds?

Run warm water over the mold to loosen the popsicles. Be careful that you do not do this too long.

You also do not want to use hot water. This will result in melted popsicles and make it even harder to remove from the mold.
