Ingredients

  • 1 watermelon - small seedless baby
  • 2 grapefruit - ruby red
  • 2 oranges - large

Instructions

  • 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 the watermelon all blended - pour it through a sieve. The amount will equal about 4 cups. Do not worry about the 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-handled reamers as shown in the citrus photo above.
  • Pour this liquid through a sieve also.  You want about 2 cups of grapefruit juice.  Again, don't stress about exact measurements and if it's less you'll just have sweeter popsicles.  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. Taste the juice. If it isn't as sweet as you think your family will like then add a tablespoon of maple syrup. It's the grapefruit flavor that you're working with. Add maple syrup one tablespoon at a time and taste each time. Don't make it too sweet.
  • Pour into popsicle molds and freeze at least 6 hours. I used Norpro Ice Pop Maker.
  • The measurements I gave you make 15-20 popsicles, depending on the mold that you have, 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.
