Paletas de Salpicón ( Fruit Popsicles)

Paletas de Salpicon

Hi guys,

I am back and first I would like to thank all my guest bloggers for the wonderful recipes they shared with my readers. Thank you so much Norma, Velva, Rebecca, Joan and Sook for accepting my invitation and for the fantastic posts.

Now let’s talk about this recipe, Paletas de Salpicón. Salpicón is a Colombian fruit salad made with diced fruit and watermelon juice or Colombiana (Colombian soda). In Medellin it is popular to serve it with a scoop of ice cream on top.

These fruit popsicles are a frozen variation of Salpicón and are very popular in Colombia.

Buen provecho!



(About 6 popsicles)

  • 3 cups assorted fresh fruit, such as pineapple, papaya, watermelon, mango, apple, banana, and seedless red grapes, cut into bite size pieces.
  • 3 cups watermelon,orange or strawberry fresh juice.

    Se ven super. Como quedarian con un poquito de “Colombiana” mezclada con el jugo, ala “salpicon” clasico. Hmmm…me tocara hacer la prueba un dia de estos! :)

    First of all thank you for letting me be a guest on your wondeful blog. These paletas are so colorful and sound delicious. I enjoy a “Colombiana” any chance I get. Unfortunately, I have to go to New Jersey to get them.
