Recipes Inspired by Mexico
Ginger, Lime, Spice and Everything Nice
Here in the Riviera Maya- it's HOT!  One of our favorite ways to cool off is with a delicious sweet, frozen treat.  Paletas or as you may know them, Popsicles are made with fresh fruit, and plenty of SPICE!  Try this Mexican inspired paleta recipe... Sweet, spicy and refreshing all at the same time!




1 cup water

1 cup fresh ginger, chopped (1 small bulb)

2 serranos, sliced with seeds

1 cone piloncillo (raw Mexican sugar), shaved (about 1 1/4 cups)

Juice of 6 limes (about 1 cup)

1 small pineapple, chopped (about 6 cups)




Combine water, ginger, and serranos in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and stir in piloncillo until melted. Allow to cook down until reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Strain, reserving syrup.

Combine lime juice, pineapple, and ginger-serrano syrup in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into molds and allow to freeze 4 hours or more.

Run frozen molds under hot water for a few seconds to loosen before eating.
