Colombian-Style Coconut Popsicles (Paletas de Coco)

coconutColombian-Style Popsicles are one of my absolute favorite summer snacks. You can make paletas with just about any kind of fruit. In Colombia we use all of the beautiful fruits the country has to offer, like papaya, guanabana, maracuya, lulo, mango, mora and guayaba. I grew up eating these kinds of popsicles and they are very easy to make and absolutely delicious!

    Wow, this looks so delicious! I also made some popsicles yesterday and am still worrying about whether they will turn out how/what they should be (coz I didn’t follow the recipe strictly!). But the flavour I made is not coconut, haha.

    I have never made these frozen pops with tropical fruits. This looks like an ideal way to kick back on a porch on warm summer evening and just enjoy these delicious pops.
