Mango Pops

Colleen Sowa


When I lived in Chicago, Illinois... I would buy these at the Flea Market.

This is my version of this wonderful spicy treat!

I usually make these according to these directions, but sometimes if I don't have the sticks/skewers, I just cut the mango away from the seed and cube it and mix it all together in a bowl. It is good either way.. but it is much more fun on a stick!

1 person


10 Min


1 large
ripe mango
1/2 Tbsp
fresh lime, just the juice
1/2 Tbsp
red hot sauce
1/3 tsp
chili powder
light sprinkle cayenne pepper
light sprinkle salt


thick skewer or pointed stick for handle

Directions Step-By-Step

Press the stick in the center of the large end of the mango (try to line up with the seed). Holding the mango vertically, hit the stick end hard on a hard surface to pound the stick into the mango seed.
Peel the skin off the mango. Holding the stick side down, use a sharp knife to make 4 or 5 slices on an angle downward. Then make slices downward in the opposite direction. (Kind of looks like a pineapple). Do this all the way around the mango.
Mix together the hot sauce (optional) with the lime juice. Drizzle this all over the mango from the top - down.
Sprinkle with chili powder on all sides and top. Then with the cayenne pepper and salt (optional).
