Mango and Lime Pops

Muy refrescante, muy tropical. The bright sweetness of mangoes, when you can find them in good shape, is enhanced by the tang of the citrus. The combination will blow a Caribbean breeze your way when the weather is scorching. And speaking of scorching … adjust the cayenne pepper to your own tolerance for heat. I like mine muy caliente.

This recipe accompanies Karen’s video CHOW Tip on how to make these spicy frozen pops.
