We're kicking ourselves because we just can't believe we didn't think about turning our favorite dessert into a popsicle before seeing this video. Seriously, file this under "things so obvious, we should have been doing them for years." But, moving on, we're jumping straight into making these arroz con leche paletas right now — enough to fill our entire freezer.
María from La Cooquette is giving us the exact steps to turn rice pudding into an icy treat that'll keep you refreshed all season long. Her recipe uses all the ingredients your abuela used in her arroz con leche (evaporated milk, condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and, of course, rice), and simply freezes the dessert for three hours before decorating the popsicles with condensed milk and shredded coconut. Watch the how-to above.
