Freshly blended pineapple agua fresca and your favorite Mexican-style tamarindo candy! Sweet, tart, spicy and ice cold! Perfect paleta for the summer!
Taste for sweetness and adjust if needed. Let agua fresca sit until the foam on top reduces and settles. Or you can scoop it out. If using a power blender, like a vitamix, there is no real need to strain the agua fresca. Otherwise I would suggest straining through a wire strainer after the foam settles.
After cutting the slits in the lids, push the sticks in the opening, cut side down. Secure onto filled cups, making sure sticks are centered and lids are tight. Freeze overnight or if you have time, 24 hours is best. When ready, remove from freezer and let stand at room temperature for a few minutes before removing from cup.
For a quicker version, you could use canned pineapple and juice. But I do suggest using fresh when possible.
