Our baby mango pops take 5 minutes to prepare and are best frozen in an ice cube tray

With only two ingredients, it couldn’t be easier to make your baby a delicious, refreshing snack. These mango and yogurt pops are great on a warm day and will also help soothe any sore teething gums. 

We use a silicone ice cube tray but if you have mini popsicle moulds, they are great too. 


  • 500g frozen mango pieces
  • 450g plain yogurt




  1. Put the mango and yogurt in a blender and blitz until smooth. Add up to 100ml water to loosen the mixture if needed.
  2. Divide into an ice cube tray or between small ice lolly moulds. Freeze until solid, best done overnight.

Top tips for making baby mango pops

Try adding other soft fruits to the mix such as banana or some softened pear and apple.

Can I serve the mango pops straight away?

If your little one can’t wait for the pops to freeze, serve a portion as a smoothie instead. You can spoon feed it to them if you like or encourage them to try and use a baby spoon. 

Can I make the mango pops dairy free?

To make these dairy free, swap for a suitable yogurt alternative. Coconut or soya would work well and are good options for babies who are one-year-old or older. If you think your baby has an allergy or intolerance to milk, talk to your health visitor or GP. They will be able to give a suitable alternative. 

What other fruits can I made pops with?

Try using strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, banana or even kiwi.
