Summer is just around the corner and that means it’s time to stock the freezer with some tasty cooling treats, like these berry mango smoothie pops.
These creamy berry mango smoothie pops are a delicious treat that your family will love! Whether it’s a sweet ending to a summer barbecue, a fun snack for the kids, or a mid-afternoon treat for yourself, these popsicles are just the thing.
Not only do they look pretty and taste good, they are also packed with nutrition! Vitamin C, Vitamin A, folate, fiber, and carbohydrates are just some of the nutrients provided by the berries and mango. Add in the protein from the Greek yogurt and the fat from the coconut milk and you have a totally balanced, healthful pop that is sure to satisfy!
I admit, a 2-layered popsicle is about all that I can aspire to master. I don’t have quite enough patience or time to make multiple layers, but I did add some additional berries to the mango section of each popsicle–frozen wild blueberries and blackberries that I had on hand in my freezer.
I made these with mainly strawberries and mangoes–but you could use whatever berries are in season or even a combination of berries. I also tried making them with frozen mangoes, which worked out just as well.
So why not try making your own smoothie pops? And if you need more summer cooking inspiration, I’ve teamed up with 50 + plus bloggers to bring you a complete recipe collection! Check it out:

You could try making a smaller amount of each layer, but I found I needed more volume for my blender to work well.
