So all of this fluffy white stuff has us smack dab in the middle of Winter! We love our winters here at ReBash, but we are pretty excited to share one of our awesome Spring vendors with you today! In the middle of May, a refreshing Hippie Pop will be just the thing to cool down. We actually would love to nom on these right now! And how cute would this vintage bicycle be at your special event to greet your guests?
I'm a Paletas maker :) I hand make flavor packed paletas using only fresh organic and/or local Ontario fruit, 100% vegan and natural ingredients, sweetened slightly with Canadian maple syrup or organic cane sugar, even the coconut cream is made from scratch y'all!
How did you get started?
One crazy idea lead to another plus a wonderfully supportive group of family & friends!
On a family trip to Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee I happened to come by a vendor who was selling a peach popsicle. I'm a peach fanatic but rarely do flavors taste authentically peach but this one did, it blew my mind and everyday I hunted that poor dude down for more. On our 17 hour drive home my family & I started throwing around ideas to have our own popsicle business but make them from scratch, add my South American influence and make them paletas, make them vegan so all could enjoy and use as much local fruit as possible to support our farmers. We wanted to build something as a family that was a positive learning experience and that simply made people happy.
Ha ha, how much I talk to each paleta as I'm making them or hand pulling them out of their molds. I firmly believe that if you are feeling love and happiness it will show in your food! So before I make them I make sure I'm in a good space, turn the music up and enjoy the process, then I pray heavily they don't break when I take them out! A solid, pretty and delicious paleta is a very beautiful thing.
What is your personal favourite piece out of your own collection and why?
Its too hard to choose! If it's not my favorite, I wont sell it!
Mango Chia, Blueberry Cardamon, Wild Strawberries Blueberry Coconut Swirl, Pink Grapefruit Raspberry..I mean come on..
I love fruit! I appreciate the time it takes for it to grow and blossom and I work with that in mind. I believe that we must make food with integrity & respect the ingredients. I want to make food that heals & brings happiness.
What can guests at ReBash expect to see from you at the event?
Well, you certainly wont miss me! I'll be there with my handmade paletas cart (which my handy husband made :) and the bicycle of my dreams! I'll bring you the most delicious paletas, each one of course made with LOVE!
So if you are looking for a unique and cool (see what we did there <--) way to add something special to your big day, come visit us at ReBash and meet Nadia!
