Paletas are Mexican ice pops, typically made with fresh fruit. A popular street food also sold at shops called paleterias, some pops are sweet but others include a bit of heat with the addition of chiles. I try not to include recipes here that require special equipment. However, I’ve had so much fun making my own ice pops this summer I had to share. See my tips below for workarounds if you don’t have a juice extractor or ice pop molds.

Thanks for the recipe. The kids loved these! Very refreshing and healthy too! We made them in the blender, used a squirt of agave in place of the simple syrup and tossed a couple of mint leaves right into the mixture. Very tasty!
Thanks for reporting back, Elisabeth. I’m so glad your kids enjoyed these. I just used agave syrup in place of a simple syrup this past week and it’s quite convincing! Since many people don’t own juicers, I’m happy to hear that you found it just as easy to make these with a standard blender.
