What “says” summer to you? Just-picked garden veggies, sparkling pitchers of freshly brewed iced tea and running barefoot through lush green grass…they all describe summer at our house. And when summer hits, the whole world revolves around our backyard.

That’s where we spend most of our time, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. And of all the things we love about summer, sweet frozen treats are at the very tippy top of the list. Nearly every night, we gather on the back deck for popsicles, and most often, they’re homemade. I like controlling the ingredients, and the kids just like anything fruity and fun – like these Sweet Tea Popsicles, packed with fresh mango and a touch of honey.

Because if we talking about perfect summer combinations, honey and mango go together almost as well as sticky fingers and huge smiles! #TEArifficPairs

We always have the tea on hand because we buy the family-size box of Lipton Tea Bags, specially blended for fresh-brewed iced tea. Each time we shop at Walmart, we buy both the regular and the decaf (for the kids.) I brew pitcher after pitcher all week, so it’s super easy to just brew a little extra for popsicles.

All it takes is some strong-brew tea, 2 pureed mangoes (or chunks, if you want), a little sugar and some honey. All real ingredients, all delicious. It’s a popsicle that appeals just as much to Mom and Dad as it does to the littles!

My kids are serious mango-heads, so their favorite part is the real fruit.  My favorite part is getting to relax outside while they run, play, and enjoy a treat made with ingredients I can pronounce.

And sometimes I even make them in our pop molds that have a hole in the middle so I can fill them with even more mango!

Fresh food, fresh tea, and lots of fresh air. I can’t think of a better way to spend our summer!

*Please note: Honey is not recommended for babies under 2 years old. We like to set aside a bit without honey to make a special pop for our little one.

 Honey Mango Sweet Tea Popsicles

  • 2 Lipton Family Size Iced Tea Bags
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 cup organic sugar (or more or less as desired. You could really leave it out if you want pops that aren’t quite so sweet.)
  • 2 mangoes, pureed (or chunks, if desired)
  • 1/4 cup honey

Pour 4 cups boiling water over 2 tea bags in a heat-proof pitcher. Brew 10 minutes; remove tea bags. Stir in sugar and honey; stir to dissolve. Allow tea to cool until lukewarm; add mango. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. Serve once frozen solid.

(Servings will depend on pop molds used)

 If this recipe makes you think “summer”, pin it for later!

  11. I’ve never been good at cutting a mango so I just decide never to buy them. I know all the “tricks” to how you’re supposed to cut them but then never seem to work for me. LOL Maybe the idea of making something fun would inspire me to battle it.

    • Well, this calls for a puree, so you can butcher it pretty badly and it will still work great! :) Haha I do agree that they are difficult to cut (but we still go through about 8 a week!)

  12. These look so delicious! We will definitely be trying these out this summer :)
