These beautiful popsicles are my SECRET RECIPE CLUB ENTRY. They are made from slices of freshly cut mango, laced with orange blossom extract, blended in a base of rich organic coconut milk and a speckled banana for texture and sweetness. They are exotic popsicles that are highly nutritious, delicious, and of course gluten free.
My mango orange blossom popsicles were inspired by Rhubarb-Coconut-Cinnamon and Raspberry Popsicles at my Secret Recipe Club assignment "Foodiva Kitchen,. It was so much fun to look through her blog.The author features delightfully interesting recipes, stories, and beautiful photos ( like the one below).

Materials needed for Mango Orange Blossom Popsicle
9 ounce paper cups
popsicle sticks ( I couldn't get any, so I inserted plastic spoons)
Bottom Layer of popsicle
1 cup of organic strawberries, cleaned and sliced
1 ripe banana
1 cup of organic coconut milk or any milk ( I used the refrigerated kind)
Top Layer of popsicle
1 cup of mango, sliced
1 Tbsp of orange blossom water ( see information about this product below)
1 ripe banana
1 cup organic coconut milk
1/4 cup water ( add a little at at time if needed)
1. Using a blender, blend ingredients for the bottom layer: strawberries, banana, coconut milk, and agave syrup until completely smooth.
Fill 9 oz. paper cups 1/2 way . Tilt cups and place in the freezer with cups leaning and tilted. Allow to freeze for about an hour or more until frozen.
2. When bottom layer is frozen, blend the top layer : mango, orange blossom water, banana, agave syrup, coconut milk and water ( whatever amount is needed to make it smooth). Fill the cup with the mango mixture and return to freezer with cups standing straight. Allow to freeze for about a 1/2 hour and then place a popsicle stick in center ( or use a plastic spoon like I did). Allow popsicles to freeze for about 2 more hours until completely frozen.
Popsicles can stay in the freezer for up to 2 or 3 days.
When ready to eat, peel paper cup from the popsicle, hold on to the stick and enjoy.
