Let me guess, you are a little curious about the flavor combination of these? You shouldn't be. These are a traditional South American popsicle or paleta. They are refreshing and have a bit of a zing from the jalapeno, but not too much zing. I can see these being great after a big taco dinner or fajita night.
1/2 medium cantaloupe, seeded, rind removed and roughly chopped
1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped
1 jalapeño, seeded and roughly chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 lime, zested and juiced
Add all ingredient into a blender. Blend until smooth. If not blending, add a little water to smooth out the puree. Pour into popsicle molds or paper cups. Freeze until firm.
