These paletas are my last ditch effort to enjoy the summer sun!
I’ve been loving making paletas all summer because they are refreshing, don’t require any cooking so you can stay out of the heat, and are very easy to make into a healthy treat.
Plus, with this particular paleta recipe I was able to exercise my creativity by painting the chamoy onto the popsicle molds using a pastry brush. If you don’t have a pastry brush you can always pour a drop into the mold and then use a toothpick to swirl it around.
This recipe has no additional sugar besides the chamoy. If you get a storebought chamoy it will be higher in sugar than if you were to make it at home. But either way, you’re only getting about 1-2 tsp per paleta so it’s still very low in sugar!
