Second Helping: Mango Lassi Popsicles

A local market was offering mangoes for just a quarter each, so I bought bags full. Few things are better than perfectly ripe mangoes, and lassi is one of my favorite ways to enjoy them.

If you've never tried lassi, get yourself to the nearest Indian restaurant and try one or three. Or get some mangoes, make some yogurt, and enjoy these popsicles.

This makes about 2 cups, just enough to fill my 6 Tovolo rocket pop molds. You can find rosewater at well-stocked supermarkets and Indian and Middle Eastern markets. You can go without it, but I find it makes a big difference in the flavor.

flesh from one mango, chopped (about 1 cup), or mango puree
1 cup yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons rosewater
pinch of cardamom

Combine all ingredients in a blender and whir until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until firm.
