Paletas de Piña y Arándano



Paletas de Piña y Arándano ~ Pineapple Blueberry Pops

I spent the weekend making salsa, small batches of salsa.  I get this way sometimes.  I crave chile and lots and lots of heat.  And I want to drizzle it on everything.  I almost laced my pancakes with it, but noticed the stare from my 7 yr old from the corner of my eye and contained myself.  I still think blueberry pancakes with salsa verde would have rocked!

Geez…  estas niñas. 

By the end of the weekend I had nibbled on a few tacos, a stack of tortillas chips and a few eggs all slathered in salsa when my tongue screamed for relief.

Paletas de salsa? Now that would be awesome.   Well… until I figure out how to make that recipe happen today we cool off with pineapple blueberry paletas, Enjoy!

Paletas de Piña y Arándano

Yield: 8


  • 4 cups fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries, plus ½ cup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Place pineapple,blueberries, lime juice and salt in blender or food processor with just a splash of the 1/2 cup water.
  2. You do not want to dilute the pineapple/blueberry flavor.
  3. Blend until smooth and strain.
  4. Pour fresh juice into your paleta mold, add blueberries and freeze for about 1 hour.
  5. Insert Popsicle sticks and freeze until solid, about 3 hours.
  6. To release paletas run your mold under warm water.


*Try soaking your wooden stick in warm water 20 minutes before using. This helps the stick to stay in place.
