Watermelon Pineapple Paletas

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

It's #paletaweek over on Lola's Cocina and a bunch of us have come together to fill your feeds with deliciousness, and I am checking it off my 20 Things to Do in Summer.  These watermelon pineapple paletas were inspired by my husband's agua fresca, and I promise they will not disappoint. 

1/4 of a large watermelon chopped
1/2 of a pineapple chopped 
1 cup lemonade or water
*sweeten if necessary

1. Chop up all your fruit. Also, finely chop some extra pineapple and set aside.  This will be used as the first layer of your paleta. 

2. Add watermelon, pineapple and 1 cup of lemonade to the blender and blend. I like the watermelon flavor to be more prevalent, so added a little more watermelon as needed. *You can also add any sweetner of your choose. 

3. Spoon in the finely chopped pineapple you set aside into the molds.  Then place them in the freezer in order for the first layer to set. 

4.  Once the first layer of pineapple has hardened take the molds out of the freezer and pour in your watermelon pineapple mixture. Then put them back in the freezer for a few hours. 

5. Once the paletas are ready you can leave them on the counter for a few mins or run the molds under warm water to get them out. 

Now all you have to do is enjoy the taste of summer!
