Paletas are wonderful Latin American treats. Our raspberry hibiscus paletas is high in antioxidants and vitamin C, and remains a tad tart (I like a bit of pucker in my berry desserts). However, if you have a sweet tooth try adding up to one additional cup of sugar – tasting bit-by-bit so as to not accidentally overdo it.As written, the recipe makes approximately 7 1/2 cups after straining and easily fills 18 Zipzicles.

Ingredients
  • 30 oz raspberries (5 cups)
  • 4 cups hibiscus tea (brewed, extra-strength)
  • 1 cup sugar (or more, as desired)
Servings: people

Instructions
  1. Brew the tea nice and strong. For this recipe, I use 6 tea bags. Add the sugar to the hot tea, stirring until dissolved.
  2. Add the raspberries and warm tea to the blender. Process together with the berries until smooth.
  3. Strain out the seeds. Pour remaining liquid to Zipzicles (or other molds) using a funnel.
  4. Freeze in a thin layer overnight (if you stack them on top of each other the freezing process may take twice as long).
Recipe Notes

In a hurry? Simply macerate the berries in the sugar and tea, leaving the seeds and several lumps. This is quite traditional as well.
