So here we cobbled together two flavors of our own: mango-lime-banana and raspberry-lemon-peach. The secret ingredient according to Laney is, of all things, club soda added at the end. Here is a basic recipe for you to try now that you can probably find all kinds of molds on sale around town. (We got ours via Amazon and the sticks on a last-minute dash to Michael's craft store tonight.)
2 c fruit, sliced (you can blend berries first and then strain out the seeds if you want)
1/4 c sugar
1 lemon or one lime, juiced
1/2 c club soda
Blend first 3 ingredients in food processor. Add club soda and pulse. Pour into molds, add sticks, and freeze for 3 hours. Let them sit out on the counter for a few to thaw for easier removal. Possibly never buy boxed popsicles again.
We went to Las Paletas TWICE when we were in Nashville for an overnight trip a few weeks ago. I think y'all should work on the chocolate and chile recipe! The pistachio was pretty darn good, too. Save me a Popsicle!
Cool! I've never had a paleta! But I read an article about Las Paletas in Nashville's version of Edible Memphis (called Local Table) and I made a mental note to go there since I'm in Nashville at least twice a month...but I forgot until now! Guess I could just use your recipe and make some home...in the meantime.
BTW, um, do ya'll know another Bianca? Cause that comment above did not come from me...I need to meet all Bianca's, so I should meet that person.
yeah, she's our sister in law...she says people always ask her if she writes for the flyer! biancas unite!
Could you use anything else to sweeten besides sugar?
Ha! That's crazy. We should start a secret Bianca club!
These sound great. To be honest I had never heard of paleta...must be a southern US thing maybe? These look great, and I have some molds that I bought a while ago. Will have to try your recipes - what a great combo.
I love, love, love paletas. Have never tried to make them, though.
I love, love, love paletas. Never made them, though.
PLEASE HELP!!! Where can I get the Stainless steel paleta molds? I don't want to use plastic! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
