Paletas de Tamarindo
Recipe type: Popsicles
Cuisine: Mexican
  • 4 cups of water
  • 20 tamarindo pods, removed from the shells
  • ½ oz lime juice
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • Garnish

  1. In a large saucepan, bring 4¼ cups of water to a boil. Once the water reaches boiling point, add the tamarindo pods and simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Strain the mixture into a large bowl. Using a spatula, press the pods against the strainer to make sure to get most of the pulp through. Mix in the sugar, lime juice and cayenne and stir to combine.
