Mexican Mango-Chile Ice Pops
Sweet and Spicy Mango PopsiclesSold in abundance by street vendors in Mexico, paletas, or ice pops, are one of the most refreshing ways of enjoying sweet, juicy fruit. One of the most popular flavor combinations: mango and chile. Here, sweet, frozen GOYA® Mango Fruit Pulp is mixed with dash of spicy cayenne pepper for an easy treat that will cool you down again and again.
Prep time: 5 min.
Total time: 10 min., plus freezing time
1 pkg. (14 oz.) frozen GOYA® Mango Fruit Pulp, thawed
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. GOYA® Lemon Juice
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper, or more, to taste
1 mango, cubed
2. Evenly divide mango cubes among eight 3-oz. ice pop molds. Pour mango pulp mixture into molds. Transfer molds to freezer; freeze until slushy, about 1 hour. Insert Popsicle stick into each mold; freeze until pops are frozen solid, about 3 hours more.
