Authentic Frozen Mexican Fruit Popsicles
If you are looking for Mexican popsicle recipes, the following recipe makes eighteen frozen Mexican fruit popsicles in three delicious flavors – mango, sour orange, and chili cucumber. These Mexican popsicles are really delicious and they keep for up to a two weeks in the freezer. Nearly all Mexican kids grow up eating paletas in Mexico and fresh seasonal fruit is often used to make them.
You can make Mexican popsicle recipes with water or water mixed with cream or milk for a creamier finish. Cantaloupe, strawberry, lime, watermelon, and chocolate are all popular Mexican popsicle varieties but the possibilities are endless and you can experiment with your own flavors. You should use 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup capacity popsicle molds to make these Mexican popsicles. You can get them in hardware stores and cookware stores. You will also need popsicle sticks.
The following Mexican popsicles recipe makes six mango popsicles, which are sweet and delicious, six sour orange popsicles, which are incredible refreshing and six chili cucumber popsicles, which might sound strange to non-Mexicans but this, is one of the best ones. Cucumber and chili go incredibly well together and this is such a refreshing flavor. Leave the seeds in the jalapeno for a spicier result.
Popsicles are not just for kids, and if it has been more years than you can count since you remember having one, why not treat yourself to a gourmet popsicle recipe? A lot of the commercially available ones are nothing more than water, sugar, colorings and chemical flavorings, so you will really be able to appreciate not only how refreshing and tasty these are but also how much healthier they are than the store-bought kind.
These are colorful and appealing and it is likely you will enjoy all 3 flavors but you will probably have a favorite. The mango and lime ones are really thirst-quenching, the sour orange ones are unusual, and the chili cucumber ones are just fantastic and typically Mexican.
