One of my favorites paletas or popsicles are Paletas de Coco con Bocadillo. I loved to eat them when I was growing up in Colombia. Now I love to make popsicles during the summer for my family. And to me, homemade popsicles are not only refreshing and easy to make, but they are absolutely delicious.
About 80% of my recipe development happens at night while lying in bed thinking about some of my favorite childhood foods. That is when these popsicles came to mind. Do you remember enjoying paletas or popsicles when you were a kid? I do. Enjoy!
