Mexican Strawberry Popsicles


Paletas, Mexican popsicles, are a deliciously refreshing treat on a hot summer day. They are lightly sweetened and made with fresh fruit which makes them a much healthier alternative to popsicles that contain artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners.

  • 1 cup drinking water
  • 1 1/2 cups ice cubes
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar


Bring the water to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Add the sugar and stir occasionally until sugar has melted into the water. Remove from heat and pour into large measuring cup, and add ice until you reach 2 cups total. Stir ice until it is melted and the water mixture is cooled. Coarsely chop the strawberries. Place approximately 2 tablespoons of the strawberries into each popsicle mold. Pour the water mixture into each mold to reach the top. Use a long spoon or a popsicle stick to gently stir the strawberries into the liquid. Place lid on, and add sticks. Freeze for one hour or until solid.
