Mango Flower Popsicle
Mangos are delicious and sweet but as I learned recently they are also packed with fiber, pectin, potassium, and vitamins A + C. Potassium as most athletes know is an electrolyte which helps reduce muscle cramps and promote muscle growth, but what you may not know is that it is also alkalizing (reduces the PH of your body). This alkalizing effect combined with a great dose of vitamins A + C provides your immune system with a killer boost.
But none of that compares to the creamy sweet taste of a cold mango on a hot day... even better than a bowl of ice in my opinion.
- 1 fine tipped thick chop stick or thick skewer
- 1 ripe mango
- Insert the sharp end of the skewer/chopstick into the stem of the mango, until you feel it hit the seed
- With a firm grip on the mango, push the stick into the seed an additional inch. Some gentle tapping on the stick sometimes helps the initial seed penetration.
- Freeze the mango for no less than 3 hours. Mango will last in fridge up to a week.
- To serve, peel mango with a potato peeler and cut slats into the mango in such a way that the mango resembles a flower. This makes the mango easier to eat as well as producing a more ascetically pleasing result.
- Wait 2-5 minutes for the mango to soften before eating.
