Ingredients
  • 2 bananas (preferably ultra-ripe with brown spots)
  • 12 strawberries
  • 1 mango
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey (if desired)
Instructions
  1. Peel the bananas and mash with a potato masher. Divide the bananas into two portions.
  2. Peel the mango and remove as much of the flesh as you can from the seed. I usually cut off what I can with a knife and then carefully use a spoon to scrape what I can from the seed. Be careful as you handle the seed as they are usually very slippery and the seed also has a very sharp edge which could cut your skin.
  3. Place mango flesh into a blender or your and blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. Wash the strawberries, remove the stems. Blend until smooth. Add honey, if desired.
  5. Divide the strawberries in half. Mix half of the strawberries with one half of the bananas.
  6. Seat the molds into the holder. Drop in about one inch of strawberries, this is about 2 tablespoons.
  7. The fruit is thick so as you place the fruit into each mold, check for air pockets with each layer. I took the handle of a long spoon to displace any air bubbles.
  8. Next layer in the plain bananas.
  9. Next layer in the mango.
  10. Finally layer in the strawberries and bananas mixture. Fill just below the top of the mold.
  11. Take care that you do not fill all the way to the top as when you place the handle in the fruit it will disperse just enough so that the fruit fills the mold. If you fill it too full it will spill over as you insert the handle and make for a sticky mess.
  12. Just set the handles on top of the molds, do not press down until they click into place. If you do you will have a very hard time removing the popsicle from the mold once frozen.
Notes
The pop molds used in this recipe were the Tovolo Star Pop Molds and they hold 2.5 ounces each so you need 2 cups of fruit to fill all six. Freeze overnight for best results.
