What the heck are paletas? They’re frozen Mexican ice pops, made in all kinds of inventive flavors. In the new cookbook Paletas: Authentic Recipes for Mexican Ice Pops, Shaved Ice & Aguas Frescas, Fany Gerson, owner of the paletas street fair shop La Newyorkina in New York City and author of My Sweet Mexico, includes recipes for traditional Mexican favorites, like Spicy Pineapple Ice Pops, and some of her own inventions, like whimsical Lime Pie Ice Pops(Explore a Mexican ice cream festival with Fanny Gerson.)

Paletas are surprisingly easy to make at home. If you don’t own ice pop molds don’t let the logistics slow you down — this book includes instructions for making paletas in glasses or other molds, so the only special equipment you’ll need is sticks. Here are some recipes to get you started: Lime Pie Ice Pops, Avocado Ice Pops & Yogurt Ice Pops with Berries.
