These probiotic cherry mango popsicles will be your new favorite summer sweet! Loaded with sweet cherry and tart mango flavor, these real fruit popsicles will keep you cool and refreshed on a hot day.

The Best Cherry Mango Popsicles

These are the easiest and best cherry mango popsicles! With five ingredients and ten minutes of hands-on prep, you’ll have the healthiest, cleanest, real-food cherry mango popsicles.

Oh, and did I mention that they’re probiotic too? I add yogurt to the mango layer for a boost of good bacteria. There are many options to add probiotics, though. You can substitute the yogurt for kombucha, kefir, or vegan yogurt.

My favorite Popsicle Mold

If this is your first time making popsicles, you’ll need a popsicle mold. There are so many options for shapes and sizes of popsicle molds! I like the shape pictured here the best, and I love the popsicle mold I bought.

It’s a silicone mold, and it has some downsides. It can get messy when placed in the freezer since it isn’t very sturdy. I suggest you don’t over-fill the compartments and lift the mold from the bottom middle support piece when placing it in the freezer.

The pros outweigh the cons for this type of popsicle mold. I love using this type of mold because it’s so easy to get the popsicles out. Since the silicone is malleable, you can press up on the bottom of the tray, and the popsicles slide right out.

Organic Real Fruit Cherry Mango Popsicles

When I make fruit popsicles, I always use real organic fruit. I think it’s easiest to start with frozen fruit, so it’s already thick when filling the popsicle molds. Our local produce market and whole foods are my favorite places to get lots of frozen fruit for cheap.

If you want to use fresh fruit, freeze it first before blending the layers in your blender.

Popsicles Perfect for Summer

Popsicles are the perfect dessert for any hot summer day. I suggest making these for a sweet treat after your family’s summer BBQ, spring and summer birthday parties, or to enjoy after a walk on a warm day.
