#DOLEcioso Paletas de Mango con Chile

This is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and Dole Packaged Foods. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

There is no better time for pallets de fruta than summer and today I want to share with you how I have finally mastered LA PALETA. I am a big fan of paletas de agua during the hot summer months, but it's always been a challenge to find a good paleta mold that makes it easy and mess-free. Now I have the perfect paleta mold and the easiest recipe EVER to share with you, featuring one of my favorite flavors of life, MANGO using yummy DOLE Frozen Fruits

Dole Packaged Foods offers a variety of Frozen Fruit Bags that feature Dole’s delicious all-natural fruit with no sugar added. You know that I am about that fast and easy life in the kitchen, with Dole Frozen Fruit, you don’t have to worry about any mess. With Dole Frozen Fruits, there’s no cutting, washing, or peeling required, which makes prep super easy. And the re-sealable stay-fresh pouch allows you to easily store your frozen fruit until you need it next. Having Dole Frozen Fruit bags in the freezer is convenient because you can incorporate them in to different recipes that will keep you cool during the summer, such as paletas and smoothies. Also great for toppings, baking, salads, or simply as a healthy snack.

Paletas de Mango Con Chile:

1 cups of Dole Pineapple Orange Juice
1 cup of Dole Mango Chunks
1/4 chili fruit powder

I usually don't have a lot of time to get these done, so my thing is to get them in the freezer as quickly as possible. I cut the large mango chunks into 2 pieces, leaving them large enough to enjoy but small 
enough to fit into the container. Now I sprinkle some chili powder into each paleta slot, I use extra because we like ours really spicy. Now fill halfway with juice. Add chunks of mango and fill with more juice. Once again I sprinkle some more chili powder and top. Add palette sticks and these are ready to go into the freezer for 4 hours. 

See those big, chunky pieces of mango? Those are the best parts about biting into one of these paletas. It's like a Mangoneada on a stick and they are so easy to make that there is just no excuse no  to have them a few times a week. And now with my new paleta mold I can make all kinds of paletas including some that the kids will love. No more having to pay the paletero man over $1.50 per paleta and that's without them having any real fruit. Today I am thinking of making Dark Sweet Cherry paletas with vanilla ice-cream (just blend), doesn't that flavor combo sound amazing?

Now I am off to enjoy my paleta de mango con chile. I hope my recipe inspires you to grab a bag of Dole Frozen Fruits and make your own masterpiece paleta for the family.
