Latin Inspired Fruit Paletas/Popsicle Recipes

This photo caught MCCN’s attention when it was posted on Facebook by So Mexican.  Thus we thought we would dig up some recipes that seem to be the logical fruit ingredient and a few extra.  If you are looking for healthy cool and freshing treat,  try these fruit flavor combination.  We threw in one veggie, the Cucumber-Chili Paletas.
Cucumber-Chili-In a blender, combine 3 cups 1-inch chunks peeled, seeded cucumber (1 1/2 lb.); 2/3 cup sugar; 1/3 cup lemon juice; and 1 rinsed, stemmed jalapeño chili (1 to 1 1/2 oz.; remove seeds and veins for less heat). Whirl until smooth. Push mixture through a fine strainer set over a 2-cup glass measure; discard residue.
