Author Notes: The challenge: My husband, pseudonym Mr. Radar, had an early summer cold, rendering him grumpy and down-right incorrigible.

The Solution: Vitamin C disguised in popsicle form. Valencia oranges, mangoes, pineapple, coconut, ginger and a kiss of honey. A sure fire combination to cure the grumpies.

Makes 16 small popsicles, 6-8 large popsicles depending on mold size

  • 2 Valencia (or other juicing oranges) juiced
  • 2 tablespoons Raw Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Hot Water
  • 3/4 cups Coconut Milk (light or regular, whatever you prefer)
  • 3 Extra ripe mangos, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup Pineapple chunks (about 1/3 a fresh pineapple)
  • 1/2 cup Unsweeted Coconut Flakes
  • 1 teaspoon fresh Ginger, grated
  • pinches cayenne
  1. Mix the honey and hot water, until the honey has dissolved. Combine he honey water, orange juice, coconut milk, mangoes, pineapple and ginger in a blender. Pulse 4 or 5 times, until the mixture is incorporated, but there are still chunks of fruit. Add the coconut flakes and pulse once more.
  2. Pour into popsicle molds and place in the freezer. It takes about 6 hours to freeze completely in my freezer. Dip the mold in hot water to loosen the popsicles for easier removal.
