Talk about a whirlwind week! Last week I flew from Los Angeles to Lisbon, with the primary goal (initially) to attend a food photography workshop in Porto Covo with the fabulous Marta and Sanda. Two amazing photographers with very distinct styles…which of course, was all part of the allure (I’d have twice as much to learn!).

But before I even got to Porto Covo I fell head over heels in love with Lisbon. It was love at first sight. I had one day in the city before heading south for the workshop and it was just enough to wet my appetite for more of, well, everything. Sights, food, history, architecture and adventures. So here I am, back in Lisbon (for two whole weeks!)…in my happy, roaming free travel place.

Surrounding yourself with like-minded people is something I’ve talked about before, but it’s adventures like these that really emphasize the level of importance it must have in your life. As in, definite non-negotiatable. People who support your goals and dreams…even if you yourself aren’t quite sure what they are just yet. And believe me when I say, my dreams and aspirations seem to change weekly (well, probably even daily).

What I do know is that I really like photography and I’m enjoying it more than I ever imagined I could. And I find myself wondering….could this be a career? Like really?! So I surround myself with others who are doing just that. Not to mention, they’re kinda cool peeps, these food blogger/photographer gals.

Anyhoo, I made this coconut chia mango popsicle recipe (and the next 4!) before I left Los Angeles for Portugal so that I could enjoy traveling and exploring the countryside without the stress of recipe creation. Yep, I’ve learned a thing or two with my overseas travels in the last year. And given that it’s a sunny day both in Lisbon and Los Angeles, these mango popsicles couldn’t be more perfectly timed.

Besides, you know I love mango anything. Like a mango smoothiemango smoothie bowl, mango, coconut and dragon fruit smoothie or raw coconut macadamia mango cheesecake. But today, it’s all about these coconut chia mango popsicles.

  • Add the mango to a food processor and pulse several times to make a puree.
  • Fill the molds of a 10-serving popsicle maker by alternating the mango puree and coconut chia mix. Add popsicle sticks and freezer for at least 2 hours.

  1. OH MY GOODNESS. This is amazing — and couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m in the market for a good homemade popsicle. Thanks for sharing!5 stars

    1. Hi Kathryn- So glad you discovered this one! This will definitely up your homemade popsicle game.

  2. What a combination of flavours, the coconut chia and mango sounds perfect together and I love the visual effect of this popsicles! I can’t wait to try them, cheers!5 stars

  3. Hi Lisa!
    So glad I found your blog & FB page! ? I have frozen mango. With this recipe about how much mango is needed to make this wonderful popsicle??

    1. Hi Amy – one medium mango is usually about 2 cups of fruit. So I’d just eyeball it from there. :)

  4. A great idea here in mango season!
    3-for-a-dollar mangoes beg for lots of uses while at the end of August/Sept. when it’s still hot out & these pops are just the answer. Coconut+Mango is always a tropical treat taste. If kids complain about the coconut swirl being “boring” (I think some kids will complain anything), it can be blended with a banana until smooth before having the chia added. This keeps it vegan & tropical but gives the coconut milk a little sweetness. And, because it’s frozen, the banana won’t turn the pretty white swirl to brown.

  5. Just LOVE the look of those popsicles!!! Haven’t got the right equipment just yet, but then :) :) :). And your photos are stunning! Also a real inspiration for me ( as with most things you do <3)

    1. Oh, you’re the sweetest!! These popsicles are just the right blend of sweet and creamy. Perfect for warmer weather (fingers crossed warmer weather will come soon in Lisbon – ha!). ;) x

  6. So glad you had a wonderful experience at the workshop! And definitely keep up the photography – your photos are always exceptional. These popsicles are also exceptional and the perfect summer treat!

    1. The workshop was amazing and inspiring in all the best ways possible! I’ll have a post on it shortly. :) x
