About a month ago, I went to the Frieze Art Fair in NYC. I felt cultured AF until I realized I was spending more time looking at the food than the art. Sure, the art was great, but the food...
Some of NYC’s most popular food vendors brought their A-Game for this prestigious art show. I had a mango, blackberry paleta, which is a Mexican popsicle made from real fresh fruit juice.
So fresh and satisfying, I had to make my own pops at home. I didn't even know I had been paleta-less and basically deprived this whole time! I made my own version, and kicked it up a notch!
Sweet and Spicy Fruit Pops
1 Pineapple cored and cut into pieces
4 oz blackberries
1 habanero pepper *if you do not like spice you can certainly omit the pepper for 100% fruit pops
- Slice the habanero pepper, removing the seeds
- In a food processor blend the fruit and pepper
- Pour the fruit puree into popsicle molds
- Inset popsicle sticks
- Freeze for hours, best if frozen overnight
