I love to make my own ice cream and ice lollies, you know exactly what ingredients they contain and they are really good value compared to buying premium brands.
Mangoes are relatively inexpensive at the moment so I decided that some Chocolate Coconut Mango Mousse Ice Lollies would be the perfect treat to keep in the freezer for warmer days.

The Mango Mousse Ice Lollies are delicious on their own but dip them in chocolate and toasted coconut and they become something extra special, an exotic tropical delight!
I recommend you use a power blender like the Optimum Vac2 Air Vacuum Blender to blend the mango. I also used it to chop the toasted coconut, it’s really powerful and makes the whole process even quicker and easier.
You can read my review of the Optimum Vac2 Air Vacuum Blender and check out my recipes for Pineapple, Carrot and Orange Juice. and Spicy Roast Pumpkin and Coconut Soup, both made with this great blender.

How to make Chocolate Coconut Dipped Mango Mousse Ice Lollies
Make the Mousse and Freeze
Make the mousse then fill the lolly moulds, pop them in the freezer overnight. They will be they are fully frozen so in the morning you are ready for the next stage.
Melt the Chocolate
Melt the chocolate in a mug, jug or jar, then dip each of the lollies into the melted chocolate.
Toast the Coconut
You can either buy ready toasted coconut pieces or toast them yourself. Have them ready to sprinkle over the melted chocolate. Then place each lolly onto a tray covered in baking parchment and place it back in the freezer to set.
The smooth, creamy frozen mousse contrasts wonderfully with the dark chocolate coating and the crunchy texture of the toasted coconut. Chocolate Coconut Mango Mousse Ice Lollies are the perfect way to cool down on a hot day.
Serve Mango Mousse as Dessert
As an alternative, you can serve the creamy Mango Mousse as dessert. Simply add a little gelatin to help with the set, then chill in the fridge for a few hours and just before serving sprinkle with toasted coconut.
