  • 2 large Mango Pulp mangoes/2
  • cup Sugar Syrup or to taste ¼
  • 1/4 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 to 2 tbsp Lemon Juice

  • To make the sugar syrup: Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat just until the sugar dissolves. Mix well and remove from heat. Let cool.
  • To make the mango paletas: If using whole, fresh mangoes, peel and cut mangoes into rough chunks. Blend with sugar syrup, lemon juice and chili powder to a fine puree, scraping sides in between.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar syrup and chili powder according to your taste. Gently mix in chopped mangoes and pomegranate pearls.
  • Pour this mango mixture into ice pop or popsicle molds. Insert popsicle sticks into each mold and freeze until they are solid, about 3 to 4 hours or more. Just before serving, run the ice pop molds under running water; gently release the popsicles.
