Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Peel the oranges and lime:  Use a knife to slice off the peel and pith (see notes).  Cut into chunks and inspect for seeds, removing any that are found.
  2. Blend:  Add ingredients to a blender in the following order – fresh lemon juice, water, sugar, peeled oranges and lime.  Blend until smooth.
  3. Fill popsicle molds:  Pour mixture into popsicle molds.
  4. Freeze:  Freeze for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight) and enjoy!

Notes

  • How to peel and de-pith oranges and lime:  See the section of the post called How To De-Pith Citrus (includes explanation and pictures).
  • Double check for seeds:  The popsicle mixture will be bitter if any seeds get blended in.  Juice the lemon in a separate bowl before adding to the blender so that it is easy to remove any seeds first.  I also like to cut the peeled oranges and lime into chunks first to check for seeds (even seedless oranges can still sometimes have a seed or two in them).
  • Popsicle Molds:  Using a good mold is the key to avoiding frustration.  Here are my picks for the best popsicle molds.  This is the stainless steel popsicle mold that I used here – my absolute favourite!  Recipe makes 6 popsicles using this mold but quantity will vary depending on the size of your mold.
  • Storage:  Keep popsicles stored in the popsicle mold or wrap each one up in plastic wrap or reusable beeswax food wrap and store in a freezer bag or airtight container.  Store in freezer for 1-2 months.
