This recipe works well if you do not have a blender with an ice crusher. If you do, just blend the ingredients below with 2 cups of ice.

Makes 4 cups.


  • ½ cup sugar

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 cup guava or passion fruit nectar**

  • 1 cup mango nectar

  • 2 Tbsp lime juice

  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple

  • 1 cup diced fresh papaya

  • Popsicle mould or 4 ounce plastic cups and Popsicle sticks


  • 1.

    Bring sugar and water to a simmer and cook just until sugar dissolves. Chill completely.

  • 2.

    Stir guava or passion fruit nectar, mango nectar and lime juice into sugar syrup. Purée diced pineapple and diced papaya together and add to juice mixture. If using a Popsicle mold, pour into mold and cover (sticks should be worked into the lid). If using plastic cups, pour mixture into cups and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Make a small slit in the center of the plastic and insert a stick. Freeze until firm, about 6 hours.

  • 3.

    To remove from moulds, run under cool water and then remove.
