Mango Lassi Pops, simple and sweet frozen treat (recipe)

This treat is awesome — it’s been warm here and I have had ice pops on my mind.

I have been working on a frozen dessert story for a wonderful client, though the recipes contain no cannabis. But it struck me that I could not let this moment of me surrounded by pop molds pass before I tried my hand at medicating them. And yes, we have a winner.

This creamy pop is my medicated version of the creamy and wonderful Mango Lassi beverage, served in Indian restaurants. And hopefully India, though I have never been.

The strain I used for this oil is Chernobyl, a hybrid that is sativa dominant. I found this weed to be relaxing but left me with lots of creative energy, and I wrote three chapters of my latest book. Sometimes a hybrid is the perfect thing for a medible: the best of both worlds. Oh, and this mango pop would be delish dipped in canna-chocolate. Just saying.

Mango Lassi Pops

Makes 6 servings

2 mangos, peeled and flesh cut in chunks

2 cups vanilla yogurt

4 tablespoons cream of coconut

2-3 tablespoons canna-coconut oil

3 tablespoons coconut sugar

2 teaspoons coconut extract


1. Place all ingredients in the blender. Puree until smooth. Pour into the popsicle molds and freeze.

2. When the pops are frozen remove from the molds according to the package directions.

Post-freezing P.S.: So, the pops are frozen and came easily out of their molds. I love that coconut oil, which always seems to give the cannabis an extra boost. My next medicated pop is going to be chocolate banana rolled in walnuts. Enjoy
