I love the real fruit paletas Mexican popsicle vendors sell from the little pushcarts, and my favorite flavor is pepino y chile – cucumber and chile. The best thing about making your own popsicles is that you can adjust the flavor to your own taste, or come up with your own flavors. I added a little extra lime and sugar to give these a bit more zing. You can buy popsicle molds online or at specialty kitchen stores.
