Triple Decker Citrus Popsicles

1 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice (from 2 to 3 blood oranges)
1 cup freshly squeezed tangerine juice (from 3 to 4 large tangerines)
1 cup freshly squeezed white grapefruit juice (from 1 to 2 grapefruit)
About 1/4 to 1/2 cup superfine sugar (see Notes)
1 to 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

Taste the blood orange juice. Add 2 tbsp. sugar and 1 tsp. lemon juice and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Taste again to see if it has the right sweetness and tartness for you, bearing in mind that, when frozen, the juice will taste more subdued; add up to 1 tbsp. sugar and 1 tsp. lemon juice if needed. Repeat with tangerine and grapefruit juices, using the same range of sugar and lemon juice for each. Fill each of 8 popsicle molds (see Notes) 1/3 full with blood orange juice and freeze, making sure they’re level and upright, until firm to the touch, about 45 minutes. Fill each mold 1/3 more with tangerine juice and freeze just until firm to the touch, another 45 minutes. Carefully insert sticks, leaving 1 1/2 to 2 inches of each sticking out. Freeze until sticks feel solidly anchored, about 45 minutes. Fill each mold to top with grapefruit juice, cover, and freeze 2 hours or overnight. To unmold, run warm water over the individual molds just until popsicles release from sides, 5 to 15 seconds

  1. Those are so cute! They would be perfect for Halloween… if they weren't so cold. 🙂 Maybe the same idea with Red, White & Blue for this weekend and then in July.

  2. My grand-kids would love these!

  3. These look so good! I am going to make these later in the week. Right now I have frozen blueberry yogurt pops in the freezer that need to be eaten! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!:)
