Refreshing, light and full of flavor, these Easy Citrus Popsicles are a must in the summer heat! Juicing fresh ripe fruit is key for these popsicles. It makes them a delicious and healthy treat, far better than store bought, I promise!
It’s easy to mix and match whatever citrus fruits are your favorites. I personally love using Ruby grapefruits and Cara Cara oranges. Cara Cara oranges are slightly pinkish on the inside and are VERY sweet and flavorful. I like to mix a bit of them to every popsicle as it works great as a natural sweetener. Depending how ripe and sweet your fruits are no extra sweetener may be needed!
I also love using lemons and/or limes. It’s just like having a big glass of lemonade but in frozen form, which is even more refreshing! Make sure to dilute lemon/lime juice with a bit of water (1:1) or else they will be quite sour and will need a lot of sweetener.

Easy Citrus Popsicles
- 10 medium sized citrus fruits of choice (blood orange, ruby grapefruit, navel orange, lemon, lime)
- maple syrup to taste
- Start by juicing one fruit with a citrus juicer. With a fine mesh strainer strain the pulp (this is optional but I like to). Taste for sweetness and add maple syrup if necessary. Pour the juice into one popsicle mold. (One medium sized fruit usually has enough juice to fill one popsicle mold). Repeat with the rest of the fruit. Feel free to mix the fruit juices together, adding some of the sweeter to juices to the more bitter ones. If making a lemon or lime popsicles dilute the juice with water (1:1) and add sweetener to taste.
- Once all of your popsicle molds are filled, place into the freezer without the sticks for 1 hour. Then remove from the freezer and add the popsicle sticks. You want the mixture to be semi frozen when you put the sticks in so that they stay in place. Return back to the freezer for another 2-3 hours until completely frozen. To remove the popsicles from the molds, let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes or hold over warm running water. Enjoy!
