Mango Basil Popsicles: the taste of summer in a sugar free frozen treat! These easy pops are gluten free, paleo, Whole30-friendly, and vegan.

Summer’s about to go away but I’m not ready to wave goodbye. Before I bust out the dutch oven and baking pans and everything else that signifies Fall, I’m celebrating every last inch of summer with these easy popsicles.

Mango and basil may seem like a strange combo. Sure, these aren’t your average sugary, chocolate-dipped, bedazzled popsicles. But the combo of sweet, earthy mango finds a dependable friend in basil. The herb gives a little boost of complexity to these pops…I wasn’t sure about it at first, but I soon found myself craving the pair!

Popsicles are super easy, which is why I’m posting another pop recipe so soon after my first (Chocolate Coffee Banana Popsicles)! As with those, I used some inexpensive popsicle molds and got down to business. Just 6 ingredients later, I think that these popsicles are perfect enough to share.

I mentioned in my last recipe that I started a photography business, and it’s been exciting and fun and all the wonderful things. I have more (slightly different) news this time. Just a couple days ago, I was the lucky participant of a group layoff at my (former) job, where 3/4 of my team were brought into a room and “let go” together. Fun times!

After the shock wore off, I think it’s a blessing. Work was getting immeasurably stressful and I had been unhappy for months. This has just kickstarted my efforts to find a new job in my field. And in the meantime, I get to cook more, spend more time behind the lens, expand my skillset, and spend more time with the kitties. All positives! There are bright things in my future, and I have my sights set on companies I can be passionate about.

I slightly delayed posting this recipe because of all that. I forgot just how time-consuming a resume revamp and job searching can be! Now I’m taking a breather from all that to finish up this post and get it published for you. Enjoy!
