With Fall around the corner, there are many activities to enjoy: pumpkin carving, corn mazes, Halloween décor, and the chillier weather. Although October and November are not usually thought of as a time to enjoy frozen treats, there are still plenty of great opportunities to enjoy ice cream and Mexican paletas from Ortiz Ice Cream!
What’s more impressive than that delicious homemade pumpkin pie? It is adding a scoop of your favorite ice cream on top! Sweater weather calls for a variety of prime ice cream options. Your local ice cream shops are sure to stock up on your favorite Fall ice cream flavors. Obviously, the fall favorite fruits are pumpkins. This fall must-have makes for a wonderful ice cream flavor. Cinnamon and Nutmeg are other fall spice favorites. Caramel apple ice cream is literally fall in ice cream form. We are sure any one of these wonderful winter flavors are going to be a huge hit for you and your loved ones!
Another great way to celebrate the Fall season is to enjoy the famous fruit-based popsicle treats—the Mexican paleta. Fall brings on prime fruit season including citruses, cranberries, persimmons, and pumpkin—all of which make for a wonderful paleta flavor! One recommendation we have is crema de limôn and crema de naranja. These fruit popsicles are orange- and lemon-curd flavor. To make either of these paletas, you squeeze orange or lemon juice from the fruit into a jar. Then you mix in sweetened condensed milk. Next, you pour the mixture into the paleta mold and place it in the freezer. A few hours later, listo! You are ready to enjoy one of Falls frozen fruit delights!
To bring on the spooky feels with these paletas, it is only right that we dive into the history. Legend has it that long before there were freezers to maintain ice cream cold, ancient civilizations would travel to the Popocatépetl volcano near Mexico City to gather ice for the Aztec emperors. The emperors’ chefs would mix the ice with Mexican fresh fruit to create these wonderful frozen treats we know now as paletas! … I suppose this story was not so spooky, eh? Whatever way you decide to celebrate the Fall season, we encourage you to explore the wonderful variations of ice cream and Mexican paletas that are sure to bring on the fall season feels with your favorite desserts provider at OrtizIceCream.com!
