Mexican Popsicles or Paletas Heladas
Paletas Heladas are the Mexican version of Popsicles.
While growing up in Mexico we used to go every Sunday to get them. There were always popsicles made with fruit of the season, some of them mixed with chili powder -specially Mango and Lime.
If you feel like trying something different in a very simple way, you can buy Mexican Chili powder -I love using Tajín- which you can find in any big supermarket or online. Just add a bit on top of your frozen popsicles and see how that addition changes everything!
Store the popsicles in the freezer well covered, or in an air tight container.
These will taste better the first 6 weeks, but can last for up to 6 months if stored properly and if there are no changes in temperature.
