These are the most refreshing, tastiest popsicles I’ve made and they’re so simple to make!
1 c frozen organic mango
1 c coconut water
Chia seeds (optional)–see picture on right.
(You can add more/less mangos + coconut water depending on the consistency you want)
Defrost the mangos just a tad, add both ingredients to blender (I used my food processor). Mix and pour into popsicle molds. Place in freezer for about 6 hours or overnight. Kids love them!

What are mangos good for? According to Dr. Mercola, “besides having more than 20 different vitamins and minerals, mangos contain flavonoids like betacarotene, alphacarotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin, which help vitamin A to impart antioxidant strength and vision-protecting properties, maintaining healthy mucous membranes and skin.” (Source: http://foodfacts.mercola.com/mango.html)
