We were trying to recreate the awesome mango shakes we'd gotten from an Indian restaurant -- these perfectly creamy, cold, and mango-y lassis. And they're incredible. You're kids will love them, because one bite of this luscious, tropically fragrant pop is like a mouthful of summer. Not to mention they're packed with nutrition from the fruit and yogurt for a double-superfood whammy: vitamins a and c, phytonutrients, probiotics, protein, calcium.
You can follow this exact recipe substituting other fruit: strawberries, say, or nectarines. Just think to yourself first about whether lime is the right flavor complement, or whether you might do better with lemon. Also, other fruits may need a bit more sugar.
Whir all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
Taste the mixture for sweetness: it should taste sweeter than you want the finished popsicle to taste, since freezing will dull the sweetness a bit. Add more sugar if it needs it, or a bit more limejuice or zest if the flavors aren't smacking you in the head with their vibrant excellence.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 4 hours.
When ready to eat, run the molds briefly under hot water to dislodge the frozen pops before you try yanking them out.
