When we were in Mexico last year we couldn’t get enough of paletas. On every corner you could get these tasty popsicles! They are made from fresh and sweet fruits and come in all sorts of colours. When we came back from our holiday I started looking for recipes and found this wonderful mexican recipe book about paletas and I use it as an inspiration. Let’s start with this sugarfree strawberry paletas. Get creative and use all your favourite fruit. Just make sure you have a big enough freezer and a good popsicle mould.
The sun is out and the perfect way to cool down are these strawberry and lime paletas.
Wash and cut the strawberries put them in a saucepan, add the rice syrup and water. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
Once cooled, transfer to a blender, add the lime juice blend until smooth. Divide strawberry smoothie between popsicle moulds. Close the lid of your paleta mould and put in the wooden sticks. A little trick to prevent the popsicle sticks from sinking too far in: Fix each stick with a clothes peg.
Freeze for at least 5 hours, or until completely frozen. Dip in hot water for 10 seconds to get to popsicles out of the mold.
