What You Will Need

To make these mango popsicles, you will need four simple ingredients…

  • Mango: Sweet, juicy mango chunks
  • Lime Juice: Freshly squeezed lime juice complements the mango
  • Honey: I like to use local honey but you can also find quality raw or pure honey at the grocery store.
  • Water Or Coconut Water: A bit of liquid is needed to help everything blend up.

Detailed ingredient list and directions located in the recipe card below.

Should I use fresh or frozen mango?

You can use either – whatever is easier and more accessible! If using frozen mango chunks, let them thaw first. This is important so that they blend up easily into a smooth mixture.

Special Equipment

You will need the following equipment to make this popsicle recipe…

  • Blender: Needed to blend up the popsicle mixture. Most blenders should work fine for this recipe but a high powered blender like a Vitamix does this with ease. This is the specific Vitamix model that I have used and loved for a few years now (but they are all great).
  • Popsicle Molds: Avoid frustration by using a great popsicle mold. Here are some of my top picks for the best popsicle molds. My absolute favorite is this stainless steel mold.

  1. Add Ingredients To Blender: Place the water, fresh lime juice, mango chunks and honey into a blender.
  2. Blend: Blend until smooth. The blended mixture will look creamy even though it’s just fruit.
  3. Fill Molds: Pour mixture into popsicle molds. This is the popsicle mold that I used. Note: This recipe makes 6 popsicles using this mold but quantity will vary depending on the size of mold used.
  4. Freeze: Freeze for at least four hours (preferably overnight) and enjoy!

Storage Tips

How long does it take for the popsicles to freeze?

It usually takes between 4-8 hours for the popsicles to freeze solid. The timing will depend on your freezer and the size of your popsicles. I usually just freeze them overnight and enjoy the next day.

How long do homemade popsicles keep in the freezer?

They tend to disappear very quickly around here! However, you can store them in the freezer for 1-2 months. They won’t go bad if stored for longer but the texture may change and develop frost.

How do you store homemade popsicles?

You can simply keep them stored in the popsicle mold. If you prefer to unmold them, just wrap each popsicle up in plastic wrap or reusable beeswax food wrap first and then store in a freezer bag or airtight container.

Possible Variations

Feel free to customize your popsicles. Here are a few options…

  • Make it creamy: Substitute the water for some coconut milk for a creamy version.
  • Switch the sweetener: Although I think the honey complements the mango really well, you could also substitute it for maple syrup, cane sugar, etc. Or just leave it out altogether if your mango is super sweet!
  • Add some texture: You can add in some diced mango if you enjoy chunks of fruit in your popsicles.

    Hi there- I made these yesterday and they didn’t firm up enough to stay on the stick. Ended up eating it like sorbet. Any idea what May have gone wrong? Maybe they’ll be frozen solid today…?

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      Hmmmm, they have always hardened up for me and some family and friends that have made them. The temperature of your freezer, size and type of popsicle mold that you are using and length of time in freezer could all be factors. I tend to let homemade popsicles freeze overnight so perhaps they just didn’t have enough time yet when you tried?

  2. Patricia says:

    Can I use lemon juice instead of lime juice for. these mango pops?

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:


  3. Billy says:

    Do you have to use molds when freezing the popsicle mixture?? Like is the a substitute?

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      Using a popsicle mold is definitely the easiest way to make popsicles! However, there are alternatives like using small paper or plastic cups and placing a piece of aluminum foil or plastic wrap on top to poke a popsicle stick through to hold in place while it freezes. Silicone muffin pans or those really large ice cube trays could also be used.

    Very easy and tasty recipe. My granddaughter wanted mango popsicles for her birthday and not a cake. So I did a search for mango popsicles and came across this recipe so I made it. My 6 year old granddaughter gave this recipe 40 stars she loved the popsicles. I did use coconut milk not water so they did come out creamy.

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      I am so happy that your granddaughter loved them! Thanks for coming back to leave a comment (it makes my day to hear these stories!). Using coconut milk is a great substitute for the water or coconut water to turn these into a creamy mango popsicle.

  5. Elena says:

    The mango popsicles look delicious ❤ where did you buy the molds please?? 🙏

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      Hi! These are the popsicle molds that I use: Onyx Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold. I have had them for about 5 years now, still like new and the ones I constantly reach for since the popsicles slide out so easily after just a couple seconds under water. No more broken popsicles or frustration!

  6. Jus says:

    I’m so excited to try these that I didn’t even scroll all the way down for the measurements I just started throwing everything in the vitamix, eyeballing it. Taste testing after every blend and adding a little here and there. They just so happened to fit into all 6 popsicle molds perfectly. I also have fresh jarred mango from Wegmans that comes in its own juice and I used half of the juice and half water to blend up. I can’t wait to try these. I’ll sprinkle some tajin on them when I’m ready to eat. Thanks for the recipe!!

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      The best part about popsicles is that they usually aren’t too picky so I bet it turned out great! Love the idea to sprinkle on some tajin! It pairs so well with mango.

  7. amena tabani says:

    for lime juice should it be just squeezed limes of squeezed lime mixed with water and honey

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      Sorry, I’m not quite sure that I understand the question. All of the ingredients listed including the lime juice are simply added to the blender and blended together at the same time. 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice is roughly the juice of half a lime (but this will depend on the size of your limes and how juicy they are). Hope that helps!

  8. Terri Gilson says:

    This is the perfect thing to do with mango and I love it’s so simple my teenagers could make it on their own!

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      I’m sure they could – super easy!

  9. Kristen says:

    Mango popsicles are the best and these look delish! We like to add chili flakes and a little salt for a spicy twist!

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      That’s a fun twist for the adults!

  10. Bernice Hill says:

    The only thing better than a popsicle on a hot day is a tropical mango popsicle. I love this straightforward recipe and I bet it’s tasty too.

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      It’s so good – you really don’t need to mess around too much with sweet mango:)
