Paletas de Agua de Coco y Limón

If there is one flavor I instantly think of when I think of my childhood it is the bright tartness of lemons (limes to you), with a hint of sweetness poking through a salty, smoky, spicy layer.

My childhood had complicated and yet extremely simple tastes.

Watermelon with salt and chile. Lemon if you want to go really wild. Sour oranges with chile. Cucumbers with lime, chile and salt. 

Sour loves sweet, salty and spicy.

You get the picture.

Paletas de Agua de Coco y Limón

  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2/3 to 3/4 granulated sugar, depending on taste
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 cups coconut water with pulp

 

Place the lime juice, sugar and zest into a clean jar. Close tightly and shake vigorously, until the sugar dissolves completely. Mix well with coconut water.

Pour into clean popsicle molds and freeze overnight. To remove from mold, rest at room temperature for two or three minutes, or run hot water over the mold of the desired popsicle.

Season with chile powder or flake, or not.
