Recipe for Chocolate Dipped Mango Popsicles:
1/2 cup coconut yoghurt (You can use any yoghurt of your choice)
1/4 tsp orange zest
Melted dark chocolate
Peel an entire mango and cut it into thin slices. Put the slices in a blender. To this, add the yoghurt of your choice. Finally, add the orange zest to this mix as well and turn the blender on. Once you get a nice thick puree consistency, pour the thick liquid into the popsicle moulds. Add the popsicle sticks to the mould and freeze these for at least six-seven hours or overnight.
Once you think that the popsicles are ready to be eaten, melt some dark chocolate, you can do this using the double boiler method or simply putting it in the microwave. Dip the popsicles in the dark chocolate and let them freeze for a little more time. People who are not a fan of chocolate can skip this step and simply enjoy the mango popsicles.
