How to make hibiscus strawberry paletas

To prepare hibiscus tea, follow the usual steps for making tea. If you have loose hibiscus flowers, bring 2 cups of water to a strong boil, turn off the heat, and add about 1/4 cup of dried hibiscus flowers. Let it cool, then add your preferred sweetener.

To make some delicious ice pops, begin by washing and slicing the strawberries. Next, place them inside the ice pop molds and insert a popsicle stick.

Pour some hibiscus tea into the molds and place them in the freezer for about three hours. Enjoy the refreshing treat once they’re frozen solid!

TIPS & OTHER IDEAS TO MAKE THE BEST POPSICLES

I’ll share some tips and tricks to help you consistently make delicious food. It’s a simple process.

Frozen strawberries are perfectly fine to use. However, if you choose to use them, it’s best to opt for organic ones. Before slicing, allow them to thaw slightly for easier handling.

Do not throw the hibiscus flower.Did you know that you can save the hibiscus flower instead of discarding it after making water?

You can safely store it in the refrigerator or freezer, and it’s completely edible. It tastes delicious in dishes like tacos or matcha sauce, so don’t miss out on this fantastic ingredient!

There are two ways to prepare them. If you prefer adding blended strawberries, you can either mix them with hibiscus water in the blender or pour them directly into the popsicle mold. Opting for the latter will result in popsicles with two distinct shades of red, which looks absolutely stunning!

How to make paletas without a mold

1. Find a substitute for a mold: Use small paper or plastic cups, ice cube trays, or silicone muffin pans instead of traditional molds.

2. Pour the paleta mixture into the substitute mold: Fill it partially to allow it to expand as it freezes.

3. Insert the sticks: If the mixture isn’t thick enough to hold the stick upright, cover the container with aluminum foil and poke the stick through it. The foil will hold the stick in place while the paleta freezes.

4. Freeze: Place the molds in the freezer and let them solidify. It usually takes about 4 to 6 hours, but it can be longer, depending on your freezer and the size of your molds.

5. Remove the paletas: Remove them from the mold once they are completely frozen. Tear away disposable molds like paper cups. For molds like ice cube trays or silicone muffin pans, run the bottom of the mold under warm water for a few seconds to loosen the paleta
