El paletero

You’ve probably seen a popsicle vendor on social media better known in the Hispanic community as “El paletero”. The popsicles would come in a wide variety of delicious flavors. Follow these simple tips below to make a hibiscus (Jamaica) popsicle that will be sure to bring back refreshing memories.

  • First, head over to Mercado El Valle. Then the shopping begins… To make this a quick tip, we can just buy the ready-made hibiscus water in our Cocina to speed up the process. If you prefer doing it yourself, you can go and buy dried hibiscus flowers from our produce department.

  • Next, you will need 1/3 cups worth of maple syrup and 1/3 cups of lime juice (optional). Once mixing into hibiscus water properly, pour mixture into popsicle molds of your choice and place in the freezer until completely frozen.

  • Lastly, run the popsicle molds under warm water to help popsicles come out of the molds easier. Enjoy!
