Paletas de Sandia con Mango (Watermelon Mango Popsicles)

Watermelons and mangos, two of the most delicious fruits in the world, are used staples in Mexico. You can find them sliced with chile and lime, in aguas frescas, and in popsicles. Surprising, neither fruit is native to Latin American. Watermelons were brought to Mexico on African slave ships and mangos are native to India.

8 cups cubed watermelon, seeds removed (about 3 pounds of watermelon)
3 mangoes, peeled and cubes
½ cup coconut water

Place the watermelon, mango cubes and coconut water in a blender and process until smooth. (You may have to work in batches.) Put in the popsicle molds and freeze.

Makes 2 dozen
