Citrus Watermelon Popsicles

Citrus Watermelon Popsicles sh Pin Word

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!

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 20 Popcicles

Serving Size: 1 popsicle

Citrus Watermelon Popsicles

Ingredients

1 small seedless baby watermelon

2 ruby red grapefruit

2 large oranges

Directions

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.

Ninja Master Blender

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.

Set aside.

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.

Set aside.

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.

Norpro Ice Pop Maker

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.

    • Well, yes you can use any fruit in popsicles but the consistency would be different with each type. Citrus would all be the same but others may vary. You would have to experiment to see how much juice you would get out of each fruit and how clear. See my other kiwi and pineapple popsicle recipe for different textured fruit.

    • No you do not have to use a sieve. I was going for the clear liquid popsicle without the pulp. It will still be delicious without straining just a little different in texture.

    • The link is in the recipe. Look up above the bottom two large photos. A few lines above that in a blue color is the Norpro Ice Pop Maker link. Click on that and it will bring you to the Amazon page. Very reasonable.
