Happy Popsicle Week! I made these Dulce de Leche Mango Yogurt Pops to celebrate!
What is popsicle week you ask? Only the best blogging event there is! It was started by Billy, of Wit & Vinegar (if you don’t know this blog you need to go check it out because I seriously laugh out loud at every post), in 2013. Basically every year a whole bunch of bloggers make some delicious popsicles and link them all in one place for your summer enjoyment.
I first became aware of popsicle week back in 2015 when Jessica (from How Sweet Eats – one of my favorite blogs) made these late night snacksicles. Ever since then I have drooled over the popsicle recipes from afar. Then earlier this year I thought, you know Taylor, you do have a food blog, and you could definitely join in on this fun. And I did, with these dulce de leche mango yogurt pops!
While I’ve made a few popsicles on the blog before (exhibits A and B) these dulce de leche mango yogurt pops have really made me realize I need to capitalize more on these no-bake, super easy summer treats (bonus points that I can combine dessert and booze in one popsicle). These dulce de leche mango yogurt pops only have 3 ingredients and are so simple yet so delicious!
These dulce de leche mango yogurt pops combine the delicious tang of plain greek yogurt with fruity ripe mango and a sweet swirl of dulce de leche (after a spoonful of this straight from the jar I had some serious nostalgia for my semester abroad in Argentina, where I ate dulce de leche at least once a day).
Dulce de Leche Mango Yogurt Pops
These popsicles combine the delicious tang of plain greek yogurt with fruity ripe mango and a sweet swirl of dulce de leche.
- 1 ripe mango (you probably won't need the entire mango)
- 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt (I use full fat)
- a few tablespoons dulce de leche
Puree ~1/2 cup of mango to blend with the yogurt, dice the reamining mango into small pieces
Swirl the pureed mango and greek yogurt together, don't over mix, you want some streaks, alternativelly you can add spoonfulls of mango puree and greek yogurt to the mold without premixing, but you will have some very tart bites
Fill your popsicle molds ~1/4 of the way with the yogurt/pureed mango mix, drizzle in some dulce de leche and add some mango pieces, repeat this process until your popsicle mold is full
Insert popsicle sticks and freeze the molds until solid (at least 4 hours), to remove the popsicles from the mold let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes or run the molds under hot water for a few seconds
- Total time includes freeze time
- Whie I prefer the tang of plain Greek yogurt you could also use vanilla or honey flavored yogurt
Happy celebrating 🙂
