Real Fruit Popsicles made from Pink Grapefruit & Oranges are juicy, quick & have refreshing popsicle flavors. A homemade popsicle recipe with 2 ingredients.
To continue my summer obsession with popsicles I have squeezed the juice from fresh ripe citrus and made Ruby Red Grapefruit and Orange Popsicles.
They are real fruit popsicles which makes the recipe as healthy as you can get. There are only two ingredients for this juicy and colorful citrus fruit treat.
Pink grapefruit are incredibly juicy and have that delicious tangy sweetness. They also just happen to be the most popular grapefruit out there.
Combine their juice with sweet and deliciously ripe oranges, and you have popsicle flavors that are utterly irresistible. Nature's candy on a stick!
I gladly turn any fruit combo into a frozen dessert. And pops are my favorite! They always bring a smile to my face and give me that good kinda feeling.
Real Fruit Popsicles
There is nothing better than homemade popsicle recipes that turn out healthy ice pops. They're waiting for you in the freezer whenever you want something sweet. And these popsicles are incredibly refreshing.
I often enjoy them as a healthy snack, guilt-free treat, or anytime to cool off from a busy day. I don't think I will ever get enough of them. They truly are just fruit on a stick.
My family loves them too, and they were pretty excited to test this citrus-flavored combo. Just look at these gorgeous fruits.
The finished product is a vibrant and bright orange color. There is no need for any extra sweetness such as maple syrup. Mother nature's fruit juice is enough to have these healthy popsicles burst with flavor.
Come to think of it you can even control the color by adding an extra orange or and extra pink grapefruit.
Straight orange popsicles were my favorite as a child, and I seriously didn't think they could be improved. But that combined tart and sweet flavor all at the same time tastes even better.
It's a super simple recipe but don't let that fool you. All you have to do is combine the fruit juices and pour them into the popsicle molds. That's it!
Just place them in the freezer and wait for them to set. You are going to love them!
Both fruits are also packed with vitamin C to give you a boost of energy—perfect for after a good yoga session or walk in the park!
And as a bonus, Ruby grapefruits are an excellent source of vitamin A. Talk about a healthy snack!
I know summer is winding down, but we have a good month of warm weather still ahead of us.
So, perfect timing to try these real fruit popsicles and let me know what you think. Or, be like me and enjoy them anytime during the year to get a taste of summer.
