Blood Orange Limeade Popsicles

Tomorrow marks the first day of spring!

I’m excited.  You’re excited.  It’s time to celebrate with these super fun blood orange limeade popsicles.  The onset of spring means strawberries, asparagus, and honeydew melons.  But it also signals the end of blood orange season.

I’m terrible at goodbyes.  I tend to let it go on and linger.  Saying goodbye to my favorite winter fruit is no exception.  Let’s prolong the life of blood oranges just a tad bit longer by making them into popsicles!

To balance the sweetness of blood oranges, I paired it with a tart and refreshing limeade.  Rather than simply mix the two juices together, I thought it would be fun to separate them.

To get that cool diagonal line, you’ll have to freeze the blood orange part first.  Tilt the popsicle mold slightly by propping it up against something like an ice cube tray to keep it steady.  Once the blood orange part is frozen, you can pour in the limeade.

Cheers to spring and all the fruit popsicles to yet to come!

Love the tilted corner of blood orange! Also LOVE that you used paper straws as popsicle sticks – that’s just genius and makes it way more festive.

It is sad to let go of those fresh citrus for now. But on the bright side, the sweet berries are coming our way! Looking forward to making some great desserts with strawberries (your strawberry cheesecake pops look delish!).

Back to these amazing pops, love the sweet and tart flavors. That color is absolutely stunning! Pinning!
