Summer is right around the corner and it is getting hot. You know the kind of hot, where you don’t want to turn on the stove and the only thing that feels good is being outside with refreshing cool treats. Well these creamy mango popsicles with chili and lime are perfect for that kind of heat. Plus, they are seriously delicious and addictive.
And since these pops are made with a2 Milk, you don’t have to worry if lactose normally causes you tummy troubles. No more skipping out on creamy desserts. If you haven’t heard of a2 Milk® yet, it’s a lactose intolerance friendly milk that is made from real cow’s milk.
Here’s how they do it. The folks behind a2 Milk® realized that originally all milk only contained only the A2 protein. Then over time a genetic mutation occurred in cows and a new type of protein developed called A1. This A1 protein is the one that causes digestive discomfort and is in all cows’ milk in-stores today. So the team at a2 Milk® makes milk that only contains the A2 protein, thus eliminating digestive discomfort for those who have trouble digesting lactose.
Now back to these amazing sweet and spicy popsicles. Mango and chili is a classic Mexican combination, and for good reason. However they can be a bit intense if you aren’t used to chili in your desserts. That’s where the yogurt and milk come in. Adding milk and yogurt balances out the chili making these popsicles rich, healthy, and delicious. They will quickly become a favorite for hot weather.
