Paletas de Mango (Mango Popsicles)

Mango Popsicles

We were always thrilled when my mom would make us paletas on hot summer days when we were kids.

In Colombia, we make paletas or popsicles using all of the wonderful tropical fruits the country has to offer. My mom’s specialties were coconut, passion fruit, strawberry, blackberry, papaya and pineapple. All of those are fabulous, but last week, I made my favorite flavor, “Paletas de Mango”. They were so easy to make and absolutely delicious. I can’t think of a sweeter, creamier, cooler way to enjoy a hot summer day. Can you?

Buen provecho!

  • 14 oz mango pulp
  • 1 cup heavy cream

    I’m so happy you posted a popsicle recipe, Erica! I read your comment about how you used cornstarch in your paletas and I was really interested to see how you did that. These mango popsicles look terrific. Mango is definitely one of my very favorite popsicle flavors.
