Step 3

Push the puree through a strainer or two. Really depends on how much effort you want to put it, I strained once and the popsicles were amazing. Obviously sweet, but with a noticeable tang from the peppers. I was highly surprised by the paletas. Very sweet, if you could imagine a jalapeno's taste without the heat.
