Mango Frozen Yogurt Push Up Pops

Remember push-up pops? My brother and I used to eat the Flintstone Push-Ups at the pool every summer. This has to be the most brilliant way to eat ice cream, because there are no spoons or bowls required. Just push it up. Now imagine if you could enjoy mango frozen yogurt in push-up pop form. Genius, right?

I found these reusable plastic push up pops at Bed, Bath & Beyond...

You can find the same four-pack online for $4.95. Or if you want to make them for a big party (wedding/graduation/Bar Mitzvah), you can get 100 for $49.95. How awesome would that be?

These are the ingredients (plus sugar). I've had good results with this Seven Stars Farm yogurt from Whole Foods, but any whole yogurt with a creamy consistency will do.

Cut one of the mangos in big chunks.

Blend with yogurt and sugar.

Chop the other mango into small pieces for frozen yogurt chunks.

I experimented making ice pops by pouring some of the yogurt straight into the molds and churning the rest in an ice cream maker. The pops that had not been through the ice cream maker were good, but kind of icy. The rest had a much smoother texture. I have yet to test this with a higher fat ice cream.

Spoon the yogurt into the molds.

Push up in action.

I also made ice pops with these cool molds.

Yum!

Recipe:

1 quart whole yogurt (try to find a creamy brand)
1/2 cup sugar
2 mangos

Peel one mango and cut in large chunks. Add mango, yogurt, and sugar to blender and puree until smooth. Pour yogurt into ice cream maker. (You can pour it directly into the molds instead of churning it in the ice cream maker, but it will be icy.) Peel the second mango and dice it into tiny chunks. When the yogurt reaches a thick consistency, add in the mango chunks and churn for another minute. Spoon the frozen yogurt into ice pop molds or push up pop molds. Make sure to avoid air bubbles. Freeze for at least 12 hours. When you are ready to eat the ice pops, run them under hot water to help get them out of the molds.

  6. Great post - makes me want to run out and look for mangos (and push-up pop holders)on the spot! Am sitting on an island with no ice cream machine for the moment, however, fighting with the eternal problem of iciness in still-frozen ice cream. Not sure how that would work with mango, but I've had at least (some) progress, using honey instead of sugar with yoghurt and different berries.

  15. You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I feel I
    might by no means understand. It seems too complicated and
    very huge for me. I'm looking forward for your next publish, I will attempt to get the cling of it!
