There’s nothing more refreshing on a searingly hot summer day than a fruity ice pop straight from the freezer. While store-bought ice pops are all fine and good, they can’t hold a candle to homemade Mexican paletas — especially when you use the naturally flavored goodness of Jarritos soda as the base of your recipe.
If you’re interested in making your own frozen treats this summer, all you need are an ice pop mold and a few bottles of your favorite Jarritos flavors.
Here are a few of our favorite paletas recipes using Jarritos soda to get you started.
Paloma (grapefruit and lime)
Mix together 1-2 bottles of Jarritos Grapefruit (depending on the volume of your ice pop molds) and the juice of 1 large lime. Pour into molds and let freeze solid, at least 6 hours and up to 2 weeks. Remove from molds and enjoy!
Pour Jarritos Tamarind into molds and let freeze solid. Remove and sprinkle with Tajin or chile powder when ready to serve.
Chop up 1 cup fresh strawberries and a small bunch of basil into small pieces. Mix together with 1-2 bottles of Jarritos Strawberry and 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar. Pour mixture into molds and freeze until solid.
Finely chop 1 small bunch mint leaves and mix with 1-2 bottles of Jarritos Watermelon. Pour mixture into molds and freeze until solid.
Chop 1 ripe mango into small, bite-size pieces and mix with the contents of 1-2 bottles of Jarritos Mango. Add the juice of 1 large lime. Pour the mixture into molds and freeze until solid.
