Colombian-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!
