In Mexico almost every child grows up eating Paletas, popsicles made from fresh seasonal fruit. In every city and every town there is always a Paleteria (popsicle shop) and a quite a few popsicle carts. Even the little town I live in there is one and called “La Michoacana”. Their name is derived from a state in Mexico called Michoacan which is where they started. They have become also very popular with americans because of the fresh-fruit flavors.
As we are in the midst of summer I am always in the mood for one, well the whole family is always in the mood for paletas, so we try to keep a fresh stock in the freezer. It never lasts too long however.
Todays roundup takes inspiration at the Mexican Paleta. Don´t these pics make you want to go and create your own paletas? Happy new week!
