Healthy Treats: Mango & Melon Popsicles

The temperatures are soaring and all you want to do is eat ice cream! But, five scoops of belgian dark chocolate a day = a million calories and not exactly, very healthy!

This reminds me of the time, when I was in Delhi and I was telling my mother how long it’s been since I’ve had HäagenDazs ice cream. When I came back home that summer, my parents had bought some HäagenDazs sticks for me. I was so happy that,  I immediately gobbled one down and later, when I checked the pack closely, one serving was around 1000calories! I felt so guilty yet each bite was somehow worth it (not on a daily basis though!).

Anyway, home made popsicles are a great guilt-free way to beat the heat. I decided to make some mango-melon popsicles. It’s really easy and yummy. You can choose any fruit you like. I chose mangoes because they’re in season and they taste delicious, melons because I can never get enough of them!

Mango, watermelon and muskmelon

Messily poured into the holders

Freeze!

Ta-da! Your popsicle is ready!

Ingredients

I used about:

2 Mangoes, peeled and chopped

1/2 a Watermelon (400 grams), chopped and seeds removed

1/2 a Musk Melon/Cantaloupe (400grams), chopped and seeds removed

Directions

1. Chop up all the fruits and make sure you remove the seeds to avoid bitterness.

2. Blend the fruits into a puree.

3. You can add some extras like sugar, chocolate chips or whatever you might like. I kept mine natural and I didn’t even add sugar.

4. Pour into popsicle holders. If you don’t have holders, you can use paper cups and ice cream sticks, which are easily available in grocery stores.

5. Freeze for a few hours.

6. Eat and enjoy!
