Read our disclosure policy. A boozy twist on mango lassi popsicles. These frozen treats are spiked with dark rum. This mango lassi is super simple and easy to make. Simply throw together frozen mango chunks, some yogurt, a splash of milk and little bit of sugar. Popsicles are frozen and alcohol doesn’t freeze. Technically alcohol DOES freeze, however only a super freezer will ever fall to that temperature. There is a fine balance when it comes to freezing liquids with alcohol. If you strike the right amount, you’ll be rewarded with a tasty treat. If you happen to add a little too much booze, have no fear. The popsicles will not freeze solid. But, you will end with a delicious slushy alcoholic beverage instead! Ingredient Notes Mango : Works with fresh or frozen mango. Any mango variety is fine, but make sure the mangoes are ripe! You may also swap in other fruits as well. Stone fruits like peaches, plums, and apricots are great options. Strawberries and raspberries are another delicious alternative. Yogurt : Use plain low-fat yogurt or vanilla yogurt. For higher protein content, swap in Greek yogurt. Milk : Use any milk of your choice. I recommend whole milk or 2% reduced fat milk. Low fat or skim milk will create an icier textured popsicle. Sugar : Granulated white sugar will result in the bright yellow popsicles. However, you may swap in coconut sugar or light brown sugar as well. Keep in mind, this will alter the final color of the pops. Rum : Adding booze is completely optional. Recommend dark rum, coconut flavored rum, or coconut vodka. Non-Alcohol Version Simply omit the rum to make mango lassi popsicles. Alternatively, try these coconut mango popsicles or raspberry mango coconut pops. Turn this recipe into a frozen smoothie or frozen milkshake by using frozen mango! Other mango based smoothies you may enjoy include: tropical green smoothie and tropical jackfruit smoothie. Recommended Popsicle Molds I personally use this 10 cavity popsicle mold. It is easy to clean and easy to use! However, there are plenty of other options. Here are some ideas: Ice Cube Tray: pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze. Once solid, process the cubes in a blender to make a slushy, frozen smoothie! Paper Cups: pour mixture into the paper cups, cover with foil, and pop a wooden stick in it. Freeze and then peel off the paper and eat. Freezer Safe Containers: use a freezer safe container such a shallow plastic storage container. Fill the container, cover, and freeze. Serve the frozen mixture like a granita, or allow to soften slightly and then scoop like sorbet. Tips For Making Alcohol Spiked Popsicles I recommend using this popsicle mold. These flexible silicone molds are another great option. Don’t be tempted to add more rum than the listed amount in the recipe. Adding too much alcohol will result in a popsicle that will break and fall apart when trying to unmold. I used low-fat yogurt, however, you may use any yogurt fat of your choice. The more fat content, the creamier the pop. Use ripe mangos! Adding more sugar than the listed amount will also affect the texture of the resulting popsicles. Too much sugar will prevent the pops from freezing solid. Freezer Storage Unmold mango lassi popsicles once solid. Serve immediately after unmolding. For longer storage, individually wrap each ice pop in plastic wrap. Store wrapped popsicles in an airtight freezer ziptop bag for up to a month.
