These delicious sweet mango lollies are simple to make and such an easy way to boost your intake of healthy bacteria. I use coconut kefir to keep them dairy free. You would also use water kefir or kombucha instead. Ideal for adults and children alike.
Difficulty – Easy
Time – 10 minutes preparation, 3-4 hours freezing time
Serves – 4-6 lollies
What’s good about it?
One cup of mangos has 100 calories and provides 100% of your daily vitamin C recommendation for promoting healthy immune function and collagen formation, and 35% of your vitamin A, important for vision, bone growth, and maintaining healthy mucous membranes and skin – plus, it’s shown by clinical studies to help protect your body from lung and mouth cancers. Buy bags of frozen mango chunks for ease and use them in a whole range of drinks and dishes.

- Peel the mango and cut the flesh into chunks.

- Pour the mixture into lolly moulds and place in the freezer until set, around 3-4 hours or overnight.
