Grown-up ice lollies with gently bitter spices in a sweet fruit and yoghurt puree

Recipe Meta


5-10 mins (plus 8 hours freeze time)








  • 1 large mango (350-400g flesh)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 15g caster sugar
  • 1 heaped tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 heaped tsp ground ginger
  • 250g coconut yoghurt


  • 6-8 ice lolly containers and sticks


Cut the flesh from the mango stone and scrape away from the skin, reserving any juice. Weigh the flesh and juice you have to ensure it’s around 350-400g, then place this in a blender or food processor.

Add the lime juice, sugar, turmeric and ginger and blitz until totally smooth. Decant this into a mixing bowl and stir the coconut yoghurt through it. Taste and consider adding a little more sugar or lime if you think it needs sweetening or sharpening.

Carefully transfer the fruity purée into your iced lolly holders. You may find a funnel helps. Add the sticks and freeze for at least 8 hours.
