Mango Coconut Cream Popsicles (V, GF, DF): a 3 ingredient recipe for creamy and refreshing popsicles packed with mango and coconut! Paleo, Vegan, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free.
Remember when you were in 1st grade and you were asked the super hard, age-old question: what does ______ mean to you? And told to insert super heavy topic in the blank.
Well, every summer, I think about what summer means to me. I’ve happily removed the heavy topic, and replaced it with a lighter, frothier (or something), more playful alternative.
To me, summer is just like these Mango Coconut Cream Popsicles. They’re easy, enjoyable, fun and carefree. Yep, popsicles can totally be carefree. Don’t you agree? (Apparently, if you don’t, I won’t stop rhyming.)
Anyway, back on point, summer feels like that wonderful opportunity you’ve been waiting for all year—to relax, to slow down, to just let go a bit. Like, the beginning of the year is when you’ve got to get your engines going—you’re in the mood to start new projects and change something you weren’t happy about last year.
Spring is when those new projects have evolved into something permanent, part of your routine… or you’ve chucked those ideas that you realized were crazy (happens to me and Erik every year).
And fall/winter is when you start getting cozy, but you also have to dive into all kinds of social events/social planning/making all the things happen for the holidays.
But summer. Oh, summer…. Can you feel my happy sigh right here?
Summer is that resting point, that hammock swinging lightly between two palm trees, that lazy afternoon picnic paired with an afternoon nap in the sun, that day off from work where you sleep in and treat yourself to a new book plus those shoes you’ve wanted forever… that quiet moment when you’re just soaking it all in.
This summer, I hope you get to turn off your alarms for a bit, set your mind to vacation mode, and indulge in some of the fun, special, sweet things you’ve held off on.
Because you totally deserve it.
I hope you share some of your summer plans with me below. While I wait to hear all about it, let me tell you about my Ode to Summer popsicles… otherwise known as my Mango Coconut Cream Popsicles. They’re:

- 3 cups frozen mangoes
- 1 can full-fat coconut milk (13.66 oz.)
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (optional)
- ½ cup unsweetened coconut, shreds or flakes
- Add mangoes to a blender or food processor. Blend until crumbly.
- Add coconut milk and maple syrup (if using), blending until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Add coconut and pulse a few times, until well mixed.
- Pour this mixture into a popsicle mold. Make sure to leave about ¼” of space at the top of the mold to allow the popsicles to expand in the freezer. Insert popsicle sticks into the mold, or follow instructions for your mold.
- Freeze for 6-8 hours.
- Remove from freezer. If needed, allow to thaw for a few minutes. Run popsicle mold under a bit of lukewarm water to help them loosen.
- Place the popsicle mold on a flat surface and wiggle the popsicles out. Enjoy!
- Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 week. Before serving, allow to thaw for about 5-15 minutes. Scoop and enjoy!
