Growing up manners were important, in fact they still are in my life.
I specifically remember my mother teaching me to share with my brother, something I didn’t do willingly. The memories of her showing me in her loving manner how to share with him and her patience as I disobeyed her over and over again in my stubborn will and toddler selfishness.
And while I still struggled to show manners throughout my childhood, particularly with the radio we were meant to have for a week each and he always ended up with three days in fourteen because I seemed to let it go so unwillingly, it remained something I did try to upkeep as a habit.
Manners are important, not just because we share this world with 7 billion other people and manners remind us of this fact but also they are an instant sign of respect to someone.
Why do I say this? Because I gave my Roamingtaste Facebook friends the choice of today’s post between the popsicles below or German pancakes and Nancy Piedra said please for the popsicles. Nancy I can’t say no to your please so find the recipe below because of your please and thank you.
Enjoy making these simple popsicles, the mango is smooth and refreshing, and then there’s the yogurt and cream mixture with a dash more mango, summer goodness in this orange fruit without the overload.
Note: For the best mangoes, buy them with a little juice flowing from the stem, this a good sign of a quality mango.
Mango and Yogurt Popsicles
1/2 mango, peeled and pitted
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/4 cup pouring cream
Cube the mango and place in a food processor, blend until smooth. Spoon 2 tablespoons into the Popsicle molds then place in the freezer on an angle for a minimum of an hour.
Combine the yogurt and cream in a bowl, spoon another 3 tablespoons of pureed mango and fold in.
Spoon the mixture into the molds 3/4 the way up.
Allow to freeze overnight.
Remove 10 minutes before eating to allow the edges to defrost enough to remove.
