Did you know that the very first Mexican ice treats were made with snow carried from the tops of local volcanoes? What this says to me is that, by now, the people of Mexico must be the authority when it comes to icy treats like paletas.
To support my theory, we have Fany Gerson and her latest book Paletas: Authentic Recipes for Mexican Ice Pops, Shaved Iced, & Aguas Frescas. I dare you to read five pages without either getting pulled into a description of a fruity, creamy, flavor-filled paleta or, alternatively, just wanting to lick the page. I certainly couldn't.
