Mexican Paletas

Paletas Moulds can be purchased from Amazon, and Jay who created these incredible recipes, recommends ensuring you choose food safe silicon that ideally stack upwards - that way they take up less room in your freezer. You can also purchase Paletas Sleeves from Amazon, to store them safely in your freezer.

Each recipe makes 4 Paletas, if you want to make more, simply double up, and the flavour combos include:

  1. Strawberry, Lemon + Lemon Pepper  
  2. Spiced Blood Orange 
  3. Black Cherry Coke 
  4. Blueberry & Victoria Plum 
  5. Pineapple + Voodoo Mango 
  6. Mexican Avocado + Lime 
  7. Rhubarb + Rose 
  8. Coconut + Rose 

The method for each is the same unless stated:

  1. Add to a pan 
  2. Bring to the boil, simmer for 5 minutes
  3. Leave to cool and let the spices infuse.  
  4. Pour the cooked mixture into a food processor or liquidiser, blend until smooth
