Recipe: Orange mango paletas

DSC_0170

Ever since I tried a homemade ice pop at a flea market a few weeks back, I’ve been mildly obsessed with making something similar at home. I finally found popsicle moulds at a local store and I’ve been experimenting with ingredients ever since. I had orange juice and frozen mango at home already, so I figured I’d give those ingredients a shot first and try to make paletas – a type of Latin American ice pop generally made with fresh fruit. I also added in some honey for a bit of extra sweetness without any added sugar. Making these was insanely simple, and they’re a pretty guilt-free treat… oh, and did I mention they’re delicious, too?

Ingredients (for 6 paletas):

  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup chopped mango
  • 2 tbsp. honey

Directions 

  1. Mix together orange juice, mango, and honey in a blender.
  2. Pour into moulds and add popsicle sticks.
  3. Put in the freezer for a minimum of 4-6 hours.
  4. Once frozen, remove the paletas from their moulds by running the moulds under hot water (or placing in a cup of hot water, alternatively). They should slide out easily with a bit of a jiggle!
