I see this recipe (I think it is identical) has appeared on the other forum.  Is that you RoxyS with a different name perhaps?

It's not Roxy JD as I am sure Roxy over there  ;)

I love Weis bars but only buy them when they are on special and even then they are soooooooo expensive so thank you RoxyS I will add these to my ever expanding recipe list  ;)

Thought I'd bump this up seeing as the weather is fining up!

We use just the mango 'sorbet' base for icypoles (we're dairy free), DS absolutley loves them. We aren't mango fans, but my sister tells me they are like the weiss bars too ;)

I did freeze and reblend the mix at once stage to see if it would be a bit more 'sorbetish', but it really is nicer without it!

Today we used 2 cans of mango's and 2 frozen cheeks, worked a charm. It makes enough for 12 icypoles here :)

How could I have missed this?  Even though today is the 2nd of Spring and only just starting to warm up, I'm still going to make these this weekend.  I simply cannot resist the temptation!

You will love them, make sure you take them out of the freezer 15  mins before you are going to eat them .

yum, thinking of trying this sometime this week.  If you cut them into slices, how do you store them in the freezer? And as a bar, how do you eat them without them melting all over the place? Or do you serve them in a bowl with a spoon? I'm sure they're delicious no matter how you eat them!

Have you got a paddle pop maker so they end up on a stick and would be easier to eat?

We got a tray of mango for $10.- and made this.  DD and DS love this!  Made some on tupperware popsicle thingy and some one silicone loaf.  Looks exactly like Weis Bar.  Yummy summer treat.

If using tinned mangos do you also use the juice?

I froze the juice from the tinned mangos I used when I made this and will use them in sorbets and smoothies, etc. during the summer.
