Mango Frozen Yogurt Pops

Mango-frozen-yogurt-pops

I live dangerously close to Yokoyaya , a Japanese shop full of inexpensive and adorable things. It’s hard to go in there and not get swept up in the kawaii. That is how I ended up with these cute paper cups.

Truth be told, I was planning to make a mango frozen yogurt soft-serve and pipe it in to these cups. I wanted it to be perfect and swirly, like the cones at Dairy Queen. Alas, I messed up and it was too runny for the piping bag.

I could have eaten it fresh out of the Vitamix; as you can see in the picture it was thick enough for a spoons to stay upright. Instead, I decided to exercise some patience and stick those little cuties in the freezer. I didn’t have popsicle sticks, so I used some plastic take-out spoons that have been hanging out in my drawer for a few years. It worked just fine.

Here is a terrible iphone photo of the finished popsicle…

I made 2 popsicles from the mixture, but you might want to divide it in to 4 servings…especially if you are planning to feed them to children.
