If you or your kids like lemonade and sour candies, these are the popsicles for you! Lemonade, mango and lime create that sweet and sour taste that’s hard to resist. I found a lemonade that is a little more tart because it has real lemon juice in it, but use whatever kind of lemonade you like. Added to the lemonade are a can of mango nectar and a little fresh lime juice, that’s it! These popsicles are easy, refreshing, tart and tasty!
Once I have everything mixed together, I use my favorite popsicle molds. These are the ones that I also use for Watermelon Lime Pops (also delicious!). Make sure to fill the molds as full as possible so there isn’t a big gap between the frozen popsicle and the handle when you unmold it. I use a container with a handle and a spout to make it easier to pour and try not make a mess. A large measuring cup works well for this too.
You can find the cans of fruit nectar in the juice aisle of your grocery store. They are inexpensive and come in a lot of different flavors that include mango, guava, apricot, pear, and the peach flavor I used for the Ginger Peach Grown Up Slushies!
Once your molds are full, you can pop your popsicles in the freezer for at least 4 hours, or overnight, and once they are set, prepare to have a delicious treat! My son is addicted to these. Not addicted to me trying to take his picture while he eats them, but definitely to the sweet and sour flavor!
- 2 cups of lemonade (homemade or store bought), I used a meyer lemon lemonade
- 1 can of mango nectar, about 1½ cups
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice, use less if you don't want the popsicles to be as tart
- Add all ingredients to a large bowl or measuring cup with a pour spout. Stir to combine.
- Carefully pour into your popsicle molds, pouring as close to the top as you can. Insert the tops of the molds and move tray to the freezer. Freeze for at least four hours, preferably overnight.
