Mango Coconut Ice Blocks

Deliciously Easy Mango & Coconut Ice Blocks!

These sweet and creamy, healthy, superfood mango & coconut ice blocks have got to be one of my favourite ways to refresh and cool down during Summer. They are a great alternative to those sugar loaded, dairy filled ice creams (think mango Weis bars!) and have some seriously nutrient dense ingredients!

Seeing as my superfood Watermelon Ice Blocks had such a great response, I have played around with another kid friendly ice block recipe!

If you have been part of the Krumbled Family for a while, you would well and truly know just how much I love turmeric. Turmeric comes from a plant called the curcuma longa plant, found primarily in South East Asia and India. Through a process of drying the root, the plan is ground down into a divine rich yellow powder, that we all know and love called Turmeric.

Some of the incredible health benefits that studies have shown for this potent superfood are, permitted that you use the right dose and seek advice from a health care professional. One of my personal favourites is from Natures Way.

  • Curcumin is a natural anti – inflammatory compound
  • Studies have shown curcumin to aid in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Assists in alleviating arthritic pain
  • Helps to regulate insulin and aid to control diabetes
  • Helps to heal wounds as it is antiseptic and an antibacterial agent

Quite possibly one of my favourite Summer snacks – the messier you get, the better it is!

Mangoes in my opinion are a super fruit. They help to alkalize your body, they aid in digestion, they are packed full of vitamin a, vitamin c and have so many carotenoids that help boost your immune system. They are also absolutely delicious, fresh or frozen!!

These healthy mango ice blocks are super easy, with 2 simple steps that make up the coconut tip and the mango bottom. With the sweetness of the mango to cut through the creaminess of the coconut, I am sure you will all be going back for seconds!

The golden milk is so yum! I have that in my coffee most mornings! Never thought about an iceblock though - so smart

Hey Kiera!
My son and I met you at the Superfood truck a while ago!! He loved those smoothies so much that now I give him a green smoothie every morning and he loves it! It was so nice to meet you and you were so good with Eli. We love your recipes so much!! we grabbed a box of mangos on the side of the road yesterday with the request from Eli to make the yummy ice blocks that you had on your instagram!! You have one 8 year old fan! Thank you 100 times over for showing him that his allergies aren't a bad thing but a good thing!!
