Inspired by Mexican ice pops (paletas), these fruity pops pack a tart lime punch. Chili powder lends flavor, not heat.


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 mangos, peeled, seeded and chopped (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 2/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ancho chile powder


  1. Place sugar and water in a blender and let stand for about 5 minutes, to soften sugar.
  2. Add mangos, lime juice and chile powder to the sugar mixture in the blender. Blend until smooth. Divide mixture among 10 to 12 3-ounce pop molds. Insert sticks and freeze overnight.


  • Prep note If you don't have molds, pour the mixture into 3-ounce paper cups, cover them with heavy-duty foil (or a double layer of foil), then insert wooden sticks and freeze. Tear off the paper and foil, then slurp away.
