Probiotic Strawberry Mango Popsicles with Chia Seeds

by Kaitlynn Fenley

These creamy strawberry and mango popsicles are going to be your new favorite summer sweet! Loaded with sweet strawberry and tart mango flavor, these creamy popsicles will refresh you all summer.

Mango Popsicles with Strawberry and Chia Pudding

Chia pudding makes these delicious popsicles so creamy! I wanted to balance the sweet strawberry and tart mango flavors with a bit of soft creaminess, and chia pudding is perfect.

The chia pudding layer is made with coconut milk, vanilla, chia seeds, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. The creamy base pairs well with just about any fruit, but I enjoy the tropical flavor combination of the coconut and mango.

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 there are some downsides to using silicone. Mainly, it can get messy when placing it in the freezer since it isn’t very sturdy. I suggest making sure 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 just press up on the bottom of the tray and the popsicles slide right out.

Strawberry Mango Popsicles Are The Perfect Summer Dessert

I love to eat something sweet after dinner! In the summer though it gets so hot here in Louisiana that I don’t want anything decadent or heavy after dinner.

I prefer something refreshing, but still a little creamy and sweet. That’s why I like to make chia pudding and chia pudding popsicles! It satiates my sweet tooth in such a healthy and refreshing way.

These Mango Popsicles are Probiotic too!

This is optional, but I wanted to make these popsicles probiotic. I simply added two tablespoons of greek yogurt to the chia pudding layer. This is such an easy way to give this summer sweet treat and an even healthier boost!
