I am so excited that a challenge was made or maybe it was an idea planted but I am going to tackle popsicles of some sort throughout the summer. What could be more refreshing or healthier than fruit on a stick? There are so many combinations and so much fun to be had. What I came up with this time is Citrus Watermelon Popsicles. 3 ingredients – and that is it! I put a clickable link in my directions for this popsicle mold and I love the shape. Lots of popsicles came out of a whole baby watermelon so I reused the mold twice. Funny how quick those popsicles are disappearing.
If you need more popsicles you might also like to try Pineapple Kiwi Popsicles. Only 2 ingredients in this one!
1 small seedless baby watermelon
2 ruby red grapefruit
2 large oranges
That is it! 3 ingredients.
Cut the watermelon off the rind and then cut into chunks.
Place in a food processor, chopper, blender. I used the Ninja and it really makes a smooth job of this process. Here is a link to the exact one that I have.
After you have your watermelon all blended - pour it through a sieve. The amount will equal about 4 cups. Do not worry about exact measurement. If you get 6 cups it will be a pretty sweet popsicle but why not.
Squeeze all the juice you can out of the grapefruit. I use one of those little wooden hand reamers.
Pour this liquid through a sieve also.
We want about 2 cups of grapefruit juice.
Again, don't stress about exact measurements.
Next get all the juice from the oranges. I used the reamer again.
Put through a sieve and this should measure about 1 cup of orange juice.
Mix all three of the juices together and stir.
That is it.
Pour into you popsicle molds and freeze at least 6 hours.
Here is that clickable link I told you about in my introduction.
The measurements I gave you makes 20 popsicles so the extra juice can be put into a container until the first batch is frozen.
Take the frozen popsicles out of the mold and put in a freezer bag.
Replace in the freezer.
Fill the molds, again, with the remainder of the juice and freeze.
