Paletas de Sandía (Watermelon Frozen Fruit Bars)

Prep Time: minutes
Yields: servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Tajín (optional)
Difficulty:

Paletas are one of my favorite summer treats. And what better way to cool off in the summer heat than a refreshing watermelon frozen fruit bar?! Making paletas at home is super easy. All you need is some fresh fruit, water, a little sugar, and a splash of lime juice. Because fresh watermelon topped with lime juice and Tajín (a chile-lime flavored seasoning salt) is one of my family’s favorite summertime treats, I like to sprinkle my watermelon paletas with Tajín before serving for a salty and spicy kick.

Directions

  1. Pulse the watermelon, water, sugar, and lime juice in a blender for 3 seconds, just to break up the watermelon. Pour watermelon mixture into frozen fruit bar molds, leaving about ½-inch of space at the top. Top the molds with plastic cover and insert wooden sticks. Chill in the freezer for 4 to 6 hours until frozen solid. To serve, remove the paletas from the mold. Sprinkle with Tajín, if desired. Enjoy!
