Paleta Morir Soñando de Chinola (Milk & Passionfruit Popsicle)

Paleta de morir soñando de chinola

September arrived and I breathed a sigh of relief. For a moment there I could feel its absence. I was looking forward to its departure, and excited about its replacement. But then, like a bad guest, it decided to stay a “little” longer. And here we are in mid-september and it hasn’t left us.

Go away, summer!

Lucky I have my own little cure: Paleta morir soñando de chinola (milk & passionfruit popsicle)

Whether or not you are looking forward to autumn depends on where you live. I, for one, will not be sad when 30 degrees Celsius at 8:00 PM becomes a thing of the past. I am looking forward to walking without the feeling that I might have a heat stroke any moment. Life is so, so much better here in the winter and spring.

Alas, summer lingers, like the smell of bad fish.

So…. what to do?

Well, how about more popsicles. This year alone I have posted four recipes for popsicles, if anything, that should be a hint of the kind of temperatures we have endured this year. At least something good came of it. We made practically everything into popsicles.

      Yes, I use fresh passionfruit, it’s easy to find here. If you can’t find it, I suppose frozen will be fine.

    Morir soñando es definitivamente mi bebida favorita! hace unos años la probé por primera vez, y se siente exactamente lo que su nombre describe. Que mal que nunca se me ocurrio hacer paletas. Creo que en fin fue algo bueno, sino estoy segura que el tenerlas a mano todo el tiempo, ahora mismo pesarîa 50 kilos mas!

    We are about to head off to the other side of the world to Italy for a holiday and I am hoping a little summer remains since down here we are ready for a little warmth. I like milk popsicles better than ice ones. It tastes like you are actually getting some sustenance.

    Mmm this looks sooo good. I’ve been on a chinola kick all week. I just finished chinola jello with pineapple in it. I can’t wait to try this. >.<
