MANGO ICY POLES

Nothing says summer more than a Mango.  I buy trays  and trays of them over summer and if they aren’t eaten outside leaning over the chair, then they are pureed and turned into lots and lots of mango icy poles.

My Mother in Law lives in the United States and every summer she reminds me of how much she loves them.  These I made for the boys yesterday, we enjoyed them tonight after we had a swim.  The cayenne salt adds a spicy salty and sweet kick to the cooling mango.  Give it a try if you love a little heat.

RECIPE MAKES 8 ICY POLES ( KEEPS IN THE FREEZER FOR 1 MONTH)

2 – 3 ripe mangoes

1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

CAYENNE SALT ( Great sprinkled on popcorn 🍿)

2 teaspoons sea salt flakes

2 teaspoons caster sugar

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

STEP ONE

Cut the cheeks of the mangoes away from the stone and scoop the flesh out into a food processor.  Cut as much of the flesh off around the stone as you can manage and place into the food processor.  Blend until combined.  Add in the lime juice and blitz again.

STEP TWO

These can be made into any icy pole mould you have.  I use a Donna Hay popsicle mould I have had for a few years.  Pour the mixture into the moulds and freeze for around 1 hour until half frozen,  then insert the sticks and freeze until frozen solid.  Preferably overnight is best.

STEP THREE

For the cayenne salt, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.  To serve take the icy poles out of the moulds, sprinkle with the salt if you like some heat and enjoy in the sunshine.
