From Library Journal:

Mexican-born pastry chef Gerson follows up her groundbreaking My Sweet Mexico with a brilliant collection of recipes for frozen Mexican treats. As in her previous book, she here emphasizes the cultural significance of her recipes to set her collection apart and make it a fun read even for those who don't cook. Paletas, ice pop treats available in every Mexican town, are represented in a range of flavor combinations from traditional strawberry to Gerson's playful rice pudding; Gerson also introduces readers to raspados (similar to snow cones) and aguas frescas (cold fruit drinks). VERDICT With recipes for all skill levels and every taste, this streamlined collection will appeal to a diverse population of foodies. It should be especially popular in the New York area, where Gerson sold homemade paletas at markets last summer and is set to open a Mexican ice cream shop this spring. In this luscious book, Gerson proves that ice pops can be a gourmet treat. A surefire classic among the epicurean set.-Kelsy Peterson, Prairie Village, KS (c) Copyright 2011.
