Passionfruit, Mango and Chia Popsicles

Serves: Makes 10 to 12 popsicles   |     Preparation: 15 minutes     |     Cooking: none

  • Pulp of 6 passionfruit
  • 2 mango, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk (or more until mixture is pourable)


1. Place mango and coconut milk in blender and whizz until smooth. Then add passionfruit and chia seeds and whizz briefly to mix through.

2. Place mixture in Popsicle mould or large ice tray with Popsicle sticks and freeze until solid (approx. two hours, faster if you use a modern popsicle maker).
