These homemade mango pineapple popsicles are creamy (yet dairy free), easy to make, and the best way to cool down on a hot day.
Last week while we had visitors in town we stumbled upon the cutest popsicle shop. They had everything from (non-dairy & dairy) ice cream-based popsicles to fruit-based flavors. Not only were they aesthetically pleasing, but the popsicles were delicious.
It reminded me that it's that time of the year to start making them at home again, like my strawberry grapefruit popsicles and now these mango pineapple beauties.
- Mango chunks. You can use frozen or fresh. If using frozen, just thaw them first.
- Pineapple chunks. Just like the mango, you can use fresh or frozen, they should just be thawed.
- Dairy-free yogurt. This just adds a nice subtle creaminess. I used plain and unsweetened.
- Lime juice (optional). The lime adds a nice balance of flavors, but would still be delicious without it.
- Raw honey. Mango and pineapple are already sweet on their own, but adding a little sweetener helps to intensify their flavors even more.
How to Make Mango Pineapple Popsicles
Add all of the ingredients to the base of a blender and blend until completely smooth. If your blender isn't very powerful, you may need to add a little water to get things moving.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds.
If using wooden sticks, freeze for an hour first before you insert the sticks and place them back in the freezer until completely frozen - at least 6 hours in total.
Make It Your Way: Ingredient Substitutions
Please remember that recipes are just a starting point.
How can you make these mango pineapple popsicles using what you already have? Here are some ideas…
- Make them vegan ➝ use maple syrup or granulated sugar in place of the honey.
- No yogurt? ➝ you can use dairy-free milk instead, but you'll only need ¼ cup
- Out of pineapple? ➝ you can use all mango to make them just mango popsicles or vice versa
A blender and popsicle molds make this recipe a breeze.
Frequently Asked Questions
You can also use small paper cups or a silicone muffin tin.
Depending on how thick your popsicles are and how cold your freezer is, it can take anywhere from 6 to 8 hours to freeze solid.
There are a couple of ways to do this.
One way is to place the popsicle mold in a bowl filled with warm (not hot) for about 15-20 seconds to help loosen them. Another way is to pour warm running water over the molds until you can release the popsicles.
Whichever method you choose, make sure the water is only on the popsicle mold as you don't want it to seep inside.
Store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.

I was so excited to make these that I forgot to thaw the fruit so…I let the partially blended ingredients sit in the blender at room temp. I also used strawberries with the mango and pineapple but these were absolutely delicious!
