Plum & Mango Popsicles
I needed to use up some that we had picked in the first picking and the kids were asking for popsicles, so I figured that they would be perfect! They were a hit. They were gone within the weekend. I'm pretty sure that these boys could live off of popsicles and ice cream. Since the popsicles are pretty healthy, I will let them. It's too hot to eat real food! Seriously. . . these boys devoured them. I guess that's a good thing.

frozen Mango pieces
Slice up some plums, making sure that the pit is out (of course!). I didn't bother taking the skins off, but it's entirely up to your preferences. Puree in a food processor until super juicy and not much is left of the skin. Pour into another bowl and set aside. Rinse the food processor container so you can do the mangoes. You want enough puree to make about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of plum puree.
Pour a cereal bowl full of mango pieces and either defrost them for a few hours before, or zap them in the microwave on the defrost setting for a few minutes. This will make them nice and soft. Pour into the food processor and add a bit of honey. Puree til you get a nice smooth consistency.
Prepare your popsicle molds. Pour a little bit of plum puree into the bottom (it's actually the top upside down) of each mold. Add some of the mango puree, but leave some room at the bottom. Top with remaining plum puree. Add sticks and stick in freezer for at least 6 hours before eating.
This recipe made 5-6 popsicles.
I used this mold for these popsicles.
