I’ve been seeing soooo many popsicle recipes online this past month! And I was so sad because I didn’t own a mould. I wanted to make popsicles so bad and finally could take it no longer. I was going to make some whether or not there were moulds (that’s a sign of desperation, guys). Once I got my hands on some Greek yogurt, I knew it’s time. As you would have known, this Saturday is Malaysia’s national day and I challenged myself to come up with 3 desserts that contain at least 3 of the 4 colours of the Malaysian flag. So for this installment, we have Mango Dragon Fruit Popsicles! Asian flavours aye. Besides the GREEK yogurt of course.
And my purplish/blue! How did I get this colour? Blue pea flowers 🙂
And I have another one stashed away in the freezer somewhere. All for me. 🙂
SCORE: 4 colours of the flag. Clever or not?
“He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.” (Deuteronomy 32:4)
- 2 cups Greek Yogurt
- ½ cup Simple Syrup (melt ¼ cup Sugar in ½ cup water)
- 1 Mango, peeled, pitted & pureed
- ½ Red Dragon Fruit, peeled & cubed
- 2 tbsp dried Blue Pea Flower
- 2 tbsp Warm Water
- 3-4 Glasses
- 3-4 Wooden Chopsticks
- Soak blue pea flowers in warm water & set aside.
- Stir simple syrup into Greek yogurt.
- Divide yogurt into 3 bowls.
- Mix mango puree into 1 of the yogurt bowls.
- Mix the strained blue colouring from the blue pea flowers into another bowl of yogurt.
- In each glass or popsicle mould, drop cubes of dragon fruit.
- Drop 2-3 tbsp of plain white yogurt to create the first yogurt layer.
- Add a few more dragon fruit cubes.
- Spoon on 2-3 tbsps of the mango yogurt layer.
- Add more dragon fruit cubes and top that with the blue yogurt layer.
- Finish with the remaining dragon fruit cubes.
- Stick the chopsticks down the centre of the glass.
- Cover with cling film (if using glasses like I did) and freeze for at least 2 hours.
- To release popsicle from the glasses, just run some tap water on the outside of the glass for 10 secs or so. They will pop right out.
