Fany Gerson's Spiked and Spiced Grapefruit Paletas

Sweets Fany Gerson Post a comment

This grapefruit-tequila paleta is particularly refreshing. If you want an extra kick, blend a bit of the chiles with the grapefruit base, or infuse the simple syrup with more chiles. Just like a margarita, these paletas have a seasoning on the top; I love both options and couldn't decide between them, so I'll leave the topping up to you. More

Fany Gerson's Corn Paletas

Sweets Fany Gerson Post a comment

One of the best things about working in markets is the wonderful people you meet. There's a particularly cute couple that are regulars at the Hester Street Fair and they love these paletas; they would buy several at a time last year to take home so they could enjoy for the week. I just bought some wonderful bicolor corn from the farmers market to make some and wanted to dedicated this recipe to them! More

Fany Gerson's Avocado Paletas

Sweets Fany Gerson Post a comment

Avocado in an ice pop? You bet. People always seem to wonder about this one, but let me tell you—one bite and it will win you over. The paleta is slightly sweetened and gets its creaminess from the natural avocado oils rather than any dairy. It's wonderful on its own but for another layer of indulgence, dip it in some melted bittersweet chocolate. More

Fany Gerson's White Sangria Paletas

Sweets Fany Gerson Post a comment

Boozy pops (or paletas borrachitas, as I like to call them) are some of my favorite ones to make—especially ones that have lots of chunks in them. You can't put much alcohol in them, because they won't freeze; but you can still taste the wine or liquor, and that makes a very tasty paleta. More

There are tons of different sangria recipes out there, and you should feel free to play with this recipe and make it your own. I love mango, so I add it to the fruit mix, but you might prefer strawberries or oranges. Just use this method as a guide to have fun with them! More

Fany Gerson's Roasted Apricot-Vanilla Paletas

Sweets Fany Gerson Post a comment

I love stone fruit so much—especially apricots because they have a bit of tartness to them. I also love a little textural contrast in my sweets, and as I was making these I started thinking of those delicious Arab candies that are made with dried apricots and pistachios, so I thought—hey, maybe I should use that awesome combination. And it worked! More

Say Goodbye to Summer with Pineapple-Chile Paletas

Serious Heat Andrea Lynn 7 comments

There's no sign at the popsicle haven Las Paletas in Nashville, Tennessee, which makes finding it tricky, but it's worth the sugary reward. The popsicles here are known for their powerful burst of unusual flavors like eggnog and hibiscus but what captured my heart was the sweet and spicy ice pops like pineapple-chile and cucumber-chile. I can't imagine a better way to spend the last lazy days of summer than indulging in this recipe for spicy ice pops. More

During the summer, the stretch of Roosevelt Avenue running through Jackson Heights is lined with vendors selling slices of mango and papaya. Tropical fruits spiked with hot sauce and salt help me cool off, but when it gets real... More
