One of our earlier memories of summer while returning from school involves relishing on mango popsicles bought from stalls posted outside the school gate. With friends, we would beat the heat while walking back home with mango popsicles. Chef Shivesh Bhatia tapped on our nostalgia of summer evenings with an easy recipe of mango yoghurt popsicles that can be made at home. "I love when you can whip up a refreshing dessert by just spending 5 minutes in the kitchen and these yogurt popsicles are my summer dreams come true," he wrote. Take a look at the recipe here.
½ cup yogurt/ homemade dahi

Mangoes come with multiple health benefits for the body. They are loaded with magnesium and potassium, which helps in regulating the pulse and the blood pressure. Mangoes – a source of mangiferin – helps in reducing the inflammation of the heart. They also help in stabilising the digestive system of the body.
