Well, I thought I was done with popsicle recipes, but apparently, I just can’t let it go.
It’s still really hot here, so I actually still have a need for icy pops at the moment. Which is how I’m justifying it.
But anyway, I happen to make these super easy grapefruit popsicles over the weekend. So, I thought I’d share the recipe.
There are only three ingredients and the pretty pink and orangey color scheme is reason enough to give these a try. Even if you don’t like grapefruit.
But they’re not just for looks. They taste great too. They’re a little bit tart and a little bit sweet at the same time. Perfect for an end of summer treat.
Here’s how to make your own grapefruit popsicles…
Ingredients: Grapefruit Juice // Pink Lemonade (or Fruit Punch) // Fresh Grapefruit
Supplies: Knife and Popsicle Mold (mine is from Amazon)
1. Slice fresh grapefruit into thin slices and place a slice or two into each popsicle mold.
2. Mix together equal parts of pink lemonade (or fruit punch) with grapefruit juice. *You can adjust the ratio to your liking. I liked the half and half ratio best though. Plus it gives the popsicles a really pretty pink coloring.
3. Then pour the juice mixture into the popsicle molds, over the grapefruit slices.
4. Add popsicle sticks (if youre not using a popsicle mold like mine, youll want to place the molds in the freezer for about 45 minutes before adding the popsicle sticks). Freeze until hardened -typically takes 3-4 hours. Run under warm water for 15-20 second to easily pop the popsicles out of the mold.
In addition to the grapefruit slices, you could add other citrus or other fruits as well. Limes, raspberries, pineapple, or mango would all be a good addition.
You could also skip the lemonade and/or punch and just go with a straight grapefruit juice option. Add a little bit of simple syrup or agave to sweeten them up and you’re good to go.
