In case you are craving for a mango based dessert, then look no further as we bring to you a recipe that combines mango and dark chocolate, guaranteed to satiate your taste buds and soul alike. 

To beat the summer heat and please your sweet tooth, Bollywood fitness celebrity trainer Yasmin Karachiwala has shared her favourite recipe that has a mango popsicle dipped in dark chocolate. She recently took to Instagram to share the recipe with her followers and after looking at it, we can safely say that it is easy to make right from the comfort of your home, so grab a popsicle mold and try making your very own popsicle: 

You will require four simple ingredients:
  • 1 mango 
  • 1/2 cup coconut yogurt (you may use any yogurt of your choice)
  • 1/4 Tsp orange zest 
  • melted dark chocolate 
Here’s how you can make your very own popsicle:

Step 1: Start by washing the mango with cold water, pat it dry and peel the outer layer, followed by chop[ing it into thin slices. 

Step 2: Next, put the mango slices into a blender and yogurt and orange zest to it. Blend the ingredients until a smooth and creamy texture appears. 

Step 3: Now, pour the thick blend into the popsicle mold and add the popsicle sticks to the mold.

Step 4: Freeze the popsicles for at least 6-7 hours or overnight and keep a check on them to ensure that they are ready for the next step.

Step 5: As the next step, melt dark chocolate and dip the frozen mango popsicles into the melted chocolate.

Step 6: Let the popsicles freeze for another half hour and then you are ready to serve and enjoy them!

Yasmin advised here that ‘if you’re not a chocolate person, you can have just the mango popsicle’.

Here’s why you should definitely try this mango popsicle:
  1. Mango is low in calories yet high in nutrients. It is loaded with vitamin C which aids immunity, iron absorption and growth and repair of tissues and muscles.
  2. Mangoes are high in antioxidants thereby reducing the risk of heart diseases. This fruit is also beneficial for skin and hair and can combat wrinkles.
  3. It contains a group of digestive enzymes called amylase which helps ease digestion.
  4. Dark chocolates, on the other hand, are loaded with antioxidants and support in lowering inflammation, “bad” LDL cholesterol levels and blood pressure. This nutritious and delicious treat is also helpful in reducing the risk factors for heart disease.

So, beat the heat with this cool and refreshing mango popsicle and enjoy this easy-to-make recipe from the comfort of your home!
