End of Summer Grapefruit Popsicles Recipe

Grapefruit Popsicle Recipe

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…

Grapefruit Popsicles Recipe

Ingredients: Grapefruit Juice // Pink Lemonade (or Fruit Punch) // Fresh Grapefruit

Supplies:  Knife and Popsicle Mold (mine is from Amazon)

How-To:

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.

These are so pretty, it would be a shame to eat them. I love how the grapefruit shows through the pink ice!

Oh my goodness – these popsicles are almost too pretty too eat! Though they look equally delish and I can practically taste the tart grapefruit already. Can’t wait to try these out – thanks for sharing!

Grapefruit recipe? Now this definitely sounds like something I have to try alongside the lime one. Another one I have yet to try! Someone has been busy making a lot popsicles lately, huh? 😉

Thanks Marilyn. They are pretty refreshing. And a little different than a typical popsicle, which I like.

Brittni

This looks amazingly refreshing!

Marilyn

Oh good! Let me know how it goes, Danielle.

Brittni

I absolutely love grapefruit! These will definitely be on the menu around here soon!

Danielle @ Chits and Chats and Chocolate

This would work great with oranges instead, Gianna. You could skip the grapefruit juice too and go with OJ.

Brittni

Haha I thought my mind was playing tricks on me when I saw another popsicle recipe.

However, they look beyond delicious.
I jes’ don’t have popsicle molds.

Perhaps that needs to change. You’ve been convincing me.

I feel like I’d do the creamy one you shared earlier, or this one, only with oranges (not a huge fan of grapefruit). However, Iike I’ve said before, I’ll TRY anything – and these look quite try-able.

🙂

Gianna

Haha. It’s still pretty hot here too, which is why I haven’t had the heart to give up on popsicles just yet.. I think this will be my last one though.

Brittni

Urgh, why are you tempting me with these goodies! It’s so hot today as well, oh dear, what’s a girl to do!
