Frozen Mango Yogurt Bars

Can you eat mango lassi? Ask me, and I will say “Yes, of course” :-) and if you ask me how, I will say “as frozen bars.”  :-) That’s what I am going to share today – Frozen Mango-Yogurt bars or barks or mango lassi bars. Please feel free to pick your favorite name. If you are like me crazy about mangoes and wondering how to store them even after the season is over – then you are right the right place and here is the solution.


Frozen yogurts bars are not new, and the internet is swamped with zillions of frozen yogurt bars recipe. This recipe was not on my list for this theme. I wanted to post Mango lassi at least this year, but when I was planning to prepare the lassi, the frozen yogurts bars recipe hit my mind, and I thought why not make mango lassi barks instead of lassi. And I duly listened to my thoughts and prepared the barks. (With that said, I shoveled the mango lassi again for next year)

Oh boy! We enjoyed licking it, and I served this as a dessert when our friends came over. My friend’s daughter liked it very much, and she packed some too. For Froyo, we use frozen fruits and serve them after about 30 minutes of freezing. It’s not completely frozen but at the same time it’s not liquid too. Froyos are mostly semi-solid.  But these barks are frozen more like Popsicle. To be honest, the sky is the limit, with just fruits and yogurt you can prepare zillion frozen recipes.

So folks, back to this recipe now.  Make this in bulk and freeze in Ziplocs. Be it fall or winter or spring; you can relish these lassi bars anytime.  All you have to do is scoop out mango pulp and puree them and then blend it along with yogurt and your favorite condiments. I just added cardamom powder. Then pour them on cake pan lined with parchment paper and freeze them. After about 3 hours, when they are in the semi-freeze state, chop them into a square and freeze it again. Enjoy those squares any time and any day.  Isn’t that simple?      

Ingredients:

  • Mango Puree – 1 cup
  •  Yogurt – 1 cup
  • Cardamom powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Sugar – 2 tbsp
  • Crushed Pistachios and Almonds – 2 to 3 tbsps

Prep – Work:

  • Peel the mango and chop the pulp and puree the same. I used one ripe mango.
  • Set aside about 1 cup of the puree.
  • Line a cake pan or baking tray with parchment paper. I lined my square cake pan with the parchment paper.

Steps:

  • In a blender, add the puree, yogurt, cardamom powder and sugar.
  • Blend it once in the pulse mode or instead of blending you can use the hand whisk and combine them well. Make sure the sugar is dissolved.
  • Now pour this mix into the cake pan lined with parchment paper. Tap it nicely to the mix is evenly spread.

  • Sprinkle the crushed nuts on top and freeze it.
  • After about 3 hours, chop them into your favorite shapes and freeze them again. Or after you cut, you can remove the bars from the parchment paper and store them in Ziploc and freeze it again too. This saves space in your freezer.

That’s it. Frozen mango bars are ready! Grab it! Lick it and Relish it!

Notes:

  • I just went with cardamom powder. But you can add saffron or rose syrup or along with mango you can add other fruits.
  • Instead of crushed nuts, you can use berries as a topping they taste delicious with mango yogurt combo. We tried that later but didn’t click pics.
  • Adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of mango.
