I have realized that not everyone shares my love of lime and chile on almost everything (and a lot of it), but I’m sure I will get some who will really enjoy this one. Growing up my top two paletas (ice pops made with fresh fruits) were coconut and lime. Here’s a recipe for a refreshing lime pop and a coconut or spicy pineapple recipe will be following soon(-ish). If you don’t have really cool molds like I do then you can always use a cup and stick a fork in the middle after it has been in the freezer for about an hour.
*If you have extra mix then keep it in the refrigerator and refill the molds as you take them out.
2 cups water
2/3 cup sugar
3(1-inch) strips of lime zest
¾ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 10)
- Place water, sugar and lime zest into pot and heat until sugar dissolves.
- Remove zest and let cool to room temperature.
- Mix in lime juice.
- Place in molds and freeze.
*This recipe yielded too much for me so I halved it.
