Mexican Paletas

What You’ll Need

3 cups ripe fresh fruit (strawberries, pineapple, mango, watermelon, cantaloupe, etc.), roughly chopped
½ cup refined sugar
1/3 cup water
3 tablespoons freshly-squeezed Mexican lime juice

How to Make It

  1. Place half of the fruit, the sugar, the water, and the lime juice into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Dice the other half of the fruit. Spoon diced fruit into ice pop molds, then add the blended mixture, leaving about half an inch (approx. a centimeter) of headspace for expansion.
  3. Place the molds into the freezer and allow at least 6 hours for your treats to firm up completely. If your molds don’t have built-in popsicle sticks (or you are using paper cups or some other receptacle as molds), take your pops out of the freezer after about an hour and insert wooden sticks into the slushy mix; return to freezer.
