All of the flavors of your favorite Indian sweet drink in one refreshing popsicle.

Cupcakes:muffins :: ice cream:popsicles.

That, my friends, is the logic that summer Fridays are made of.

Meaning….popsicles for breakfast?!

Yes, I think so.

And unlike muffins, which are usually bombs of caloric doom and destruction that are hellbent on absolutely ruining your day, these popsicles won’t build you up and then tear you down. Quite the opposite, actually.

You’ll be giggling to yourself because hello you’re eating dessert for breakfast and it has mango in it, which is pretty swoon-worthy in and of itself…and then at the same time you’ll be running around with tons of energy because of all that fiber and protein and good stuff you’ve just consumed.

Let’s face it. These popsicles have all the things. And by that I mean…vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, and pure happiness with hints of cardamom and ginger.

Can your blueberry cranberry bran cardboard muffin say that? Mmmmhmmm. Didn’t think so.

So, possibly the SADDEST NEWS EVER is that today is the last day of #frozentreatweek!! But have no fear, I already have new frozen treats in the queue for the coming weeks. So even though it’s over. It’s never really over.

Also, we are going out with BANG. Today you have the chance to win…a Blendtec Designer Series Blender with a Twister Jar AND a prize pack from Big Kitchen that consists of a Tovolo Easy Prep Quick Hand Mixer and a set of 4 Tovolo ice cream pop molds! All I have to say is…I wish I was eligible. I had to blend up my popsicle mix in a food processor and if I had any words to describe it, neat and tidy would not be among them.

See below for details on how to enter!

    great addition with the spices, taking it from Brazil to India… Taj Mahal… a dream of a place I want to see someday

  21. […] Mango Lassi Popsicles from Eats Well With Others […]

  22. Holy deliciousness! I need to try these. I don’t know why I never put spices in my fruit pops, but I think I’m about to start now. Cardamom is one of my faves!

  23. These look so good! Lassi’s are pretty expensive at my local indian restaurant but I love them. Love being able to make a popsicle version at home!

  24. What a great giveaway and that popsicle is totally breakfast appropriate!

  25. Kate says:

    As much as I like your summer logic, I can’t see myself doing a popsicle for breakfast, even though they are really just frozen smoothies!

  34. Joyce says:

    Do you use whole or ground cardamom? These sound great and I can’t wait to try them.

  35. Susan says:

    I’ve never had a mango lassi but looking at the ingredients I know I would love it! Popsicles for breakfast works for me – especially with mango and greek yogurt.

    I’m loving look at all of the frozen treats you’ve whipped up in this past week! Wow!

  36. I just had Indian last night for dinner and had a pineapple lassi to go with it! Love lassi (s?) and making a popsicle version for breakfast is a great idea!

  37. G’day Joanne! I love this idea, true!
    What a great way to use the mango flesh combining lassi as a frozen dessert too!
    GREAT photo!
    Cheers! Joanne

  38. Heck yes! I love how freaking easy these are!! Yum!

  39. Beth says:

    These look wonderful, but I love my mangoes so much as is, it’s hard to convince myself to turn them into anything else. Popsicles for breakfast might just do it.

  40. Whopee! These will go well with the hot weather you’re having in New York now!

  41. Hotly Spiced says:

    I do like your popsicle moulds. I need to buy some of these. Ahhh, mangoes! I sure do miss them. Four more months to go before we see them again. xx

  42. And this right here…this is why I created a Popsicle board. Pinning!

  43. gloria says:

    Joanne I love mangos and I would be happy to eat these at breakfast!!

  47. Monet says:

    Hi lovely lady. These pops look so very good…and what a great idea to begin the day with something cold and sweet. Thank you for sharing!!

  48. I WANT THESE NOW – and this is said by someone sitting in heating due to wintery weather outside. You have definitely excelled with the ingredient list here!

  49. Tandy says:

    I think I need a popsicle mould!

  50. Laura says:

    I can’t believe how healthy these are! The look so delicious too! Too good to be true :)

    Danielle

  52. Jessie says:

    What a delicious portable breakfast! I can see having these as a mid-afternoon snack and dessert, too. The addition of ginger and cardamom is such a good idea, too.

    I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: I LOVE your new site design! It’s just so … you!

  53. cquek says:

    One word… AaaaMAZING!

  54. My food processor is my new bff after I killed my blender a month or so ago. The food processor makes my smoothies, purees soup, does it all. Hope I don’t kill it too! These popsicles are teh perfect refreshing summer treat! But please no more analogies – I think that’s one of the only things in school I never understood ;)

  55. Karen says:

    Dang, these sound good!

  56. Amy Tong says:

    My favorite blended frozen treat is chocolate milkshake! WHat a great recipe you’ve got. I love your idea of Mango Lassi Popsicles for breakfast. :) And love love love this giveaway!

    amy [at] utry [dot] it

  57. I love mango lassis so much and popsicles look like they would be even better because I can enjoy the flavours for longer instead of drinking it all down in one sip! These would be delicious any time of day!

  58. Lynn says:

    A truly unique popsicle!

  59. ramblingtart says:

    Absolutely scrumptious and healthy popsicles, Joanne. :-) It’s WAY too cold for such things at the moment, but I can feel Spring in the air and just know I’ll be craving popsicles in a couple of months. :-)

  60. Meg says:

    Yum! My fiance just tried mango lassi for the first time last week and, needless to say, he’s a fan. We’ll have to give these a whirl!

  61. Denise says:

    Hi,
    I made these the other day and added some fresh blueberries. Yummy!
    Denise

  62. This is genius, Jo! I love the tart/sweetness of mango lassi and in a popsicle? AH, the best mango lassi experience ever!

  63. I’ve been so into frozen treats for breakfast lately, namely of the watermelon or raspberry variety, but I do love frozen mango, and if it’s in popsicle form it’s automatically at least 15 times more satisfying. What a great idea, Joanne!

  64. Rhonda says:

    I haven’t had mango in forever, these look perfect for the AZ blast furnace we call Summer!

  65. I indeed had pops for the breakfast last two days!! Your mango lassi popsicles look GREAT!
