Citrus Popsicles

Sunkist Citrus Popsicles


1 cups freshly squeezed Sunkist® Valencia orange juice
1 cup freshly squeezed Sunkist® grapefruit juice
1 cup vanilla simple syrup (see below)
8 slices or halves of citrus
8 small paper cups or popsicle molds
8 popsicle sticks

Vanilla Simple Syrup

1 cup boiling water
1 cup cane sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Combine freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juices and vanilla simple syrup in a pitcher or large measuring cup with a spout.

Pour mixture into popsicle molds or paper cups. Place in freezer for 1 hour or until partially frozen.

Add citrus slice or half that matches the size of the popsicle most closely. Run stick through the citrus, into the popsicle, making sure it doesn’t go all the way to the bottom of the cup.

Freeze 1-2 more hours, or until solid. If using paper cups, peel cup away before serving.
