Superfood Mango Jigglers

  • Author: Meghan Telpner
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


A simple, grain-free, dairy-free snack or breakfast for toddlers


  • 1 mango (about 2 cups coarsely chopped)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp ground chia
  • 3 Tbsp grass-fed gelatin (I use Great Lakes)
  • 2 medjool dates (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup water or coconut milk


  1. Add mango, coconut oil, ground chia, gelatin and dates to blender. Add 1/4 cup of the water/coconut milk.
  2. Blend until smooth, adding more water/coconut milk as needed to get a smooth and creamy consistency. You don’t want it too thin or it won’t gel. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  3. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to silicone ice cube maker (see my photo in post) or 125 ml mason jars and fill to about 1 inch thick.
  4. Place in the fridge and chill for 6 hours, or until set.
  5. Pop Jigglers out of the mold and transfer to a freezer friendly container. If using jars, allow Jigglers to set in the fridge before freezing


I have not tried a vegan version of this, so I cannot comment on how it would work.
I have tried this recipe with mango, 2 cups of blueberries, and mixed berries with great success. Aim to use a fruit that is flavourful and without a high water concentration.
If you want to use just 1 Tbsp of chia, cut water back to 1/2 cup.
If your little one is used to sweeten foods, you may want to start with three or four dates and use less each batch.
