Tasty Tuesday: Two Ingredient Blood Orange Popsicles Recipe


Blood Orange Popsicles Recipe

I made some popsicles, over the three day weekend, with the leftover blood oranges I had from last week’s candied oranges recipe. So, I thought I’d kick off the week with quick tutorial for making these pops.

This particular recipe is one of my favorites as of late. The combination of sweet and tart is A+ in my book. Plus, it only has two ingredients, which means it pretty much doesn’t get any easier.

Recipe // Blood Orange Popsicles


  • Blood Orange Italian Soda (available at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s)
  • One Blood Orange


1. Start by slicing a blood orange into 1/4 inch thick pieces (or even thinner if you prefer) and then cutting those slices in half, so they’ll fit in the popsicle trays.

2. Next, lightly squeeze the juice from the orange slices into the popsicle tray. Then add the orange slices into each individual popsicle mold.

3. Pour the soda into each popsicle mold. Then, pop the whole tray in the freezer for about 45 minutes.

4. Pull the popsicle tray out and add popsicle sticks. Then put them back in the freezer to fully harden (about 4 hours). Once frozen, remove the tray from the freezer and run warm water over the underside of the tray for 20-30 seconds to remove.

*Because of the fizziness / bubbles in the italian soda, these tend to pop out or overflow from the mold a bit when they freeze. It doesn’t make them taste any better or worse. Just an interesting thing that happens.

And if you have any leftover italian soda, you might as well make a cocktail or two. Add vodka or sparking wine and an orange slice and you’re good to go.

I hear ya, Arnella. The cold weather won’t stop me from eating (or making) popsicles when blood oranges are involved. Haha.

Haha. Thanks Jacquelyn! I definitely have quite the obsession with popsicles at this point.

Not only do these look amazing but I am such a fan of the fact that they only consist of two ingredients!

Not only do the Popsicles look yummy but so does the counter top😍 how do you like your carrera marble? How easy or how hard hard is it to care for???

Anne Oswald | January 21st, 2015 at 11:42 am

Hi Anne. This is just the magic of photos….The marble is actually a large cutting board (not countertop)…but I do love it. 🙂 It was just resealed the other day, actually. Still going strong after a year or more.
