Just back from an amazing quick trip to Cancun Mexico and am faced with bleary cold weather. I almost can't remember what the warm sun felt like on my face. If you are in the market for a vacation, I'd highly recommend the Hyatt Ziva in Cancun - it was pure bliss. Perfect for families or just adults. We stayed in the adult only Turquoise tower and would highly recommend it given the high end services and access to the adult only roof top infinity pool.
Back to reality and back to my no-sugar diet. I may or may not have enjoyed a sugary drink and dessert or two while on vacation. Now I can feel my sugar-dragon coming on and I need to break the addiction again.
These super easy to make Coconut Blackberry Lime Paletas only take 3 (or 4 if you want to add blueberries) ingredients and less than 5 minutes of prep. Of course, with most frozen treats the hardest part is waiting for them to freeze.
If you don't have access to blackberries, try blueberries as they also pair well with lime. And we all know that coconut and limes are a classic combo. A little bit of lime with berries always provides a little extra brightness to the flavor.
I'm also excited to use my new Ice Pop mold which I purchased from Amazon. It makes a more traditionally shaped Ice Pops than the previous molds I had plus I can make 10 at a time. I didn't do a great job of putting my sticks in straight so I did have a little itty bit of trouble taking the metal top off when they were ready. I've learned my lesson!
I can't wait for summer so I can enjoy Paletas/Ice Pops without shivering and staring out the window at falling snow.
If your Paletas don't easily come out of the mold then simply place in a small amount of warm water and after a minute or two they should wiggle right out for you.
No need to feel guilty if you eat one or two or ten of these babies. Less than 80 calories a pop. Just blackberries, coconut milk (I used lite) and a bit of lime juice and voila. Time to Enjoy!
