Paletas de Pay de Limón – Lime Pie Ice Pops


August 23, 2011

Adapted from Paletas: Authentic Recipes for Mexican Ice Pops, Shaved Iced, & Aguas Frescas by Fany Gerson, by way of Avery and The Kitchn


1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup half & half

zest and juice of 2 large limes

Pinch salt

coarsely crushed graham crackers or Digestive cookies (or graham crumbs)


1Whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, half & half, lime juice, lime zest, and salt in a bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. It will thicken slightly - a reaction between the lime juice and milk - I love that.

2If using ice pop molds, fill them almost to the top and pop in their sticks. If using shot glasses, fill them almost full, then cover with plastic wrap and stick popsicle sticks through the wrap (which will hold them in place) - the mixture is likely thick enough to hold a stick upright without the wrap, though. Freeze until solid.

3Spread the crumbs on a large plate.

4 Unmold the pops and dip into the graham crackers, coating as much as you like.
