Cool off with a paleta in the Arizona desert

Cool down with a paleta in the Arizona desert

Nothing says Sonoran summer like frozen fruit on a stick. Paletas Betty uses family recipes from owner Betty Alatorre de Hong’s native Michoacán to make densely flavored, traditional Mexican fruit pops by hand. Behind the counter of the generously air-conditioned yoga studio turned sweet shop in Chandler, Betty tinkers with new flavor combos in small batches. We love the lavender blackberry, but prepare to be surprised by inventive seasonal (and delicious) pops.  Stop by the shop for a fresh treat, even after the summer heat is gone.
