Fruit Popsicles and Mug Cake

Since I was trying to eat healthy food, I have been depriving myself from eating desserts. Good thing I found popsicle trays at Daiso.  I got this urge to immediately use it. As a start, I made fruit popsicles.

This is fairly easy. I bought watermelon, avocado and mango. I chopped the fruits finely and layer them.

I also made popsicle made with purely mangoes.

I guess fruits are good for the heart.

My 21-day No Junk Food Challenge ended on Valentine’s day. I wanted to try this mug cake recipe.

Preparation time is less than 5 minutes and you only need to microwave it for 70 seconds.   This is how it looks inside the mug.

I removed the caked from the mug and did something with the presentation.

It is actually good. Can you see the lizard keeping an eye on the chocolate cake?

  2. I want to try the mug cake recipe one of these days. The Popsicle looks delicious too, perfect for summer which is already around the corner.

  3. Watermelon, avocado and mango all together, how does it really taste?

    • Taste like frozen fruit. Not that sweet. My aunt did not like it. She preferred a sweeter version and that meant adding sugar.

  4. I like the fruit popsicle idea. For the mug cake, what cocoa powder you used? Thanks

  5. Oh yeah I saw the lizard eyeing the cake. The cake really looked moist and decadent! I would love to taste it. 🙂

  6. Can I have one fruit popsicles? These looks delicious, and if its fruit, wow they’d be healthy! I’m curious about the fruit popsicles.

  8. I like to make my own fruits Popsicle especially during the hot weather like now. I need more ice and cold desserts.

  9. Wow! Those fruit popsicles looks really delicious! I just proposed to my boyfriend that we try making those sometime. The mug cakes remind me of cup cakes, which were originally made in cups 🙂

  10. That’s one great way to eat your fruits! That means you don’t have to make it into a shake anymore before popping into the freezer?

  11. I’ve always wanted to try the mug cake recipe. Do you have to add water to the fruit popsicles before freezing them? They look good for the summer heat.

  12. The fruit pops look refreshing! It reminds me that summer is fast approaching. The mug cake is very easy to do.

  13. Your fruit Popsicle look really yummy. Maybe I too should make some for the kids to eat 🙂

  16. I enjoy eating frozen papaya. Haven’t thought about making it into a popsicle. We have plenty of popsicle molds at home. I guess fruit popsicle sounds perfect this summer. Thanks for the great idea.

    The mug cake looks nice. This is what Mommy asked me to do din.

  25. Both desserts look yummy! I have not tried both the popsicles and mug cakes yet. Good idea to use fruits as they are a healthier choice.

  26. The fruit popsicles is such a nice idea! I’ve been cutting back on junk food too, and there are a lot of times that I want to snack on something delish, but not just plain fruits or veggies. Will definitely be trying to make my own fruit popsicles soon. Good thing we have a Daiso near our place! 😀

  34. I really love your fruit popsicles! But isn’t it quite hard to eat? I have sensitive teeth and even with a regular ice cream popsicle, it gives chills to my gums. I think this would too because technically, it’s a frozen fruit, right? But it does look yummy!
