I can't believe it was 2 years ago that I shared this recipe for Strawberry Paletas. Paletas are Mexican Ice Pops. They are a wonderful summer treat.
My nephew is always on the outlook for something fun and different to give me for Christmas. I have had so much fun with this book.
2 cups of Hibiscus tea
2/3 cup of sugar
4 cups of fresh or frozen raspberries
Mix 1/3 cup of sugar with the hibiscus tea.
Pour 1/3 cup of sugar over the raspberries and allow to sit for about 30 minutes or until the raspberries begin to express liquid.
Combine the hibiscus tea with the raspberries and their liquid.
Pour into molds or container of choice. Add popsicle sticks once the mixture has begun to set a bit. Allow to freeze for approximately 4 hours before serving.
For a fun dessert, pour the liquid in champagne glasses. Unmold before serving, but place them back in the glasses to serve. The pops will drip, so be sure to serve with a plate.
