  • ½ cup sugar

  • cup lime juice

  1. In a blender combine sugar and 1/2 cup water. Let stand 5 minutes to soften sugar. Add mangoes, lime juice, and ground pepper. Cover and blend until smooth.

  2. Spoon mixture into ten 3-oz. ice-pop molds. Insert sticks; cover and freeze overnight. Makes 10.
