Stay cool this Spring with refreshing sweet grapefruit popsicles! Easy to whip up, and perfect for a light snack. This is a sponsored post on behalf of Sweet Scarletts and Millennial Blogs.
With Spring finally here, it is time for me to break out my collection of popsicle molds and start whipping up some frozen treats! You know how much I adore popsicles, and since I have about a bajillion ingredient ideas floating around in my head I am kicking things off with a light, refreshing, and oh-so-delicious blend featuring grapefruit, pineapple, and vanilla almond milk. These popsicles have a fabulously fresh flavor, and the unexpected combination of grapefruit and pineapple really go well with the creamy almond milk! I know that grapefruit isn’t for everyone, but trust me – you are going to love these popsicles. I personally love grapefruit, and my favorite variety is Sweet Scarletts – this red grapefruit is bursting with juice, and it is naturally sweet, so you won’t need to add sugar. You can find them at a variety of retailers across the country, so check your local store today!
Ready to begin? Here is what you will need:
- 1-2 Sweet Scarlett grapefruits, cut into slices and de-seeded
- 1 cup fresh pineapple
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- Popsicle mold
- First, combine your pineapple, almond milk, and Greek yogurt in a blender and pulse for a few seconds until you have a fairly chunky texture. You can blend it out all the way if you like, but I love to leave bits of pineapple chunks in mine.
- Pour your mixture into your popsicle molds up to the halfway mark.
- Peel and cut your grapefruit into your choice of slices or chunks, and make sure to take the seeds out. I like to slice mine and then cut them into triangles so that I can fit a few into my molds.
- Add in a couple of grapefruit chunks per mold, and then top off with remaining pineapple mixture.
- Freeze for at least 3 hours, and enjoy!
They say kids are the hardest to please when it comes to food, but mine adore these! I love that they are full of smart choices – fresh fruits, yogurt, and none of the bad stuff. Now that’s what I call a family friendly snack!
