Mango Chili Paletas

I recently bought this popsicle making set at our local co-op, and it’s been awesome to use.  While I love making ice cream, it takes at least a day’s worth of forethought and the gratification is delayed.  With popsicles though, you can make them right after work and enjoy them for dessert.  Anyway, this was my first attempt, and they turned out great.

Mango Lime and Chile Paletas

2 ripe, medium mangoes, peeled and cored
juice of 2-3 limes
sugar (start with less than 1/4 c; how much sugar you use will depend on the sweetness of your mangoes and your own taste)
1 dried guajillo chile, seeded and stemmed
1 tsp Mexican chile powder
approx. 1/2 c. water

Combine ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Taste, adding sugar and liquid as needed. Pour into a popsicle mold and freeze.

    Love the Rocket pops!!! I’d try that recipe but David gets super-pouty lips when he eats mango. We’ve enjoyed blackberry-banana earlier this summer.
