For the past 2 years, I have been stocking up my refrigerator with aam panna concentrate every time I find good raw mangoes. This year, to give a twist to this popular Indian beverage, I decided to make them in the form of popsicles. It turned out to be a fun activity for my kids and they have been relishing these popsicles every single day.
My daughters were super excited to make their own popsicles for the first time and loved how tangy and satisfying these raw mango popsicles tasted.
To add more flavour and colour to the aam panna, I added a few mint leaves to the recipe and it made the popsicles more beautiful and delicious.
These raw mango popsicles are tangy and sweet with a bit of spice. Every bite is a complete burst of flavours. During summer, all you need is one popsicle to keep you refreshed.
