Hibiscus Mango Popsicles | Paletas de Jamaica y Mango

hibiscus mango popsicles

I’m sure that you’re familiar with old saying “opposites attract.” Well, this week I experimented in the kitchen with an unlikely pair of ingredients and they turned out to be a heavenly match!

This popsicle recipe calls for the union of tart hibiscus and sweet mangos. Originally, I intended to make a sorbet using these two ingredients, but because I didn’t allow enough time for the mixture to cool, it failed to set in my ice cream maker. On the bright side, I converted the concoction into a mouthwatering paleta (and perfected the sorbet recipe shortly after)!

Upon taking my first bite of these frozen treats, I realized that they were quite possibly one of the most delicious mistakes I had ever made in the kitchen.

Mango Passion Sorbet

Mango Sorbet with Fresh Passion Fruit

I have always had a passion for Mexican popsicles, ice creams, and sorbets. Perhaps it is because as a child I would frequent my aunt’s ice cream shop in Acambaro, Guanajuato where I was exposed to a world of interesting new flavors. Growing up, my two personal favorites were sour Mexican lime and sweet grape — both were sorbets.

Since then I’ve had the opportunity to taste various types of frozen treats and was inspired to develop this refreshing sorbet using Manila mangoes and passion fruit. The passion fruit seeds add fun texture to the velvety smooth mango. This tropical flavor combination is sure to have your taste buds doing the cha-cha-cha! Read More…
