When the weather warms up, frozen desserts are the best way to cool down. Skip the artificially flavored, store-bought treats and make your own healthy, whole-food ice pops at home. These island-inspired pops turn ripe mango chunks, juicy orange slices, and refreshing coconut water into a tropically flavored, plant-based dessert.


Ice pops are easy to make and even easier to customize. This recipe uses a simple marbling trick for a refreshing treat that looks as good as it tastes. Get creative — use leftover fruits (and veggies!) for fun flavor combos like rhubarb and strawberry, or mango and basil, or add kombucha for a fizzy kick


Get the Recipe



  • 1½ cups (360 ml) coconut water [or Passionfruit Kombucha]

  • 1 orange, peeled

  • ½ lime, peeled

  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) honey, optional

  • 1 (300 g) mango, peeled, pitted and chunked

  • 1 can (400 ml) coconut milk, mixed well


Step 1: Position Ice Pop Sticks

Place sticks in ice pop mold. 



Step 2: Load Ingredients

Place coconut water, orange, lime, honey, and mango into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.



Step 3: Blend Ingredients

Run the Smoothie Program or start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend for 40–50 seconds, using the tamper to push ingredients toward the blades.



Step 4: Pour Coconut Milk and Blended Ingredients

Pour the coconut milk evenly into the ice-pop molds until they’re 1/4 to 1/3 full. Pour the blended mixture on top of the coconut milk.



Step 5: Swirl & Freeze

Use a skewer to swirl the two mixtures together to create a marbling effect. Freeze for 4 – 6 hours.
