Chili Lime Watermelon Pops // The Year in Food

Guys. Hi! I can’t believe that the official start of summer is this weekend. I’m heading to the woods on a backpacking trip – where it’ll be hot and summery and full of bears and unbelievable views. Lots of bears + no electricity means no popsicles for me this weekend. I can hang with a little short-term sacrifice. These things are so good. They’re vibrant and spicy and a little tart and kinda puckery. They’re more savory, and the heat from the chile probably wouldn’t go over well with most five year olds. But I bet that they would go over well with the big kid set. Happy Summer! Hope you make the most of it.

    I had a chili mango paleta in Mexico City and I still member how brilliant the combination of sweet mango and spicy chili tasted. I can’t wait to give this recipe a try!

    Happy summer! And happy backpacking!ReplyCancel

    Perfect timing – I have half a huge watermelon in the fridge & was looking for something to do with it. Where did you get your molds? (and do you like them?)ReplyCancel

    Oh well, I might as well tell you what we do with watermelons.
    Imagine fierce Indian summers and cold metal tumblers filled to the brim with cubed watermelons sprinkled with chilli and chopped coriander. Heaven!
    That’s what you’re popsicles remind me of…heaven!ReplyCancel

    Hi Kimberly,
    I promised to drop a line when we got back from our trip. We met at Gunsight Pass during our backpacking trip in Glacier. Love your blog. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for when your cookbook is released. Your photographs are spectacular. I think beautiful photos are what make a cookbook. It inspires me.

    Wishing you all the best on your future endeavors and wherever the trail may take you. :)
