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. Blood Orange Frozen Pops 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. Ingredients and Substitutions Blood orange season runs from late Autumn through Spring. Although often mistaken for Cara Cara oranges, they are quite different. Blood oranges are a bit more tart than the common Naval orange. Some blood oranges are deep red, while others are more orange and yellow. The color of your popsicles may vary as a result. Easily sub in whatever oranges you have. Alternatively, the recipe works well with tangerines or grapefruits! Recommended Tools and Molds There are so many different popsicle mold and frozen pop molds to choose from! I highly recommend this popsicle mold from Amazon. I’ve had mine for years. It is very easy to clean and makes 10 frozen pops at a time. I used this Lolly Pop Mold for the photographs seen here. Instead of a plastic stick or wooden stick, I opted for colorful paper straws. These stainless steel molds are also great. However, you need to purchase two sets to make a dozen popsicles. For a super versatile mold, I recommend these flexible silicone ice cream bar molds. I use this mold for these mango jackfruit popsicles and these white chocolate corn ice cream bars. You may also use items you already have at home like ice cube trays, small paper cups (like Dixie cups), or recycle used yogurt cups! More Blood Orange Recipes Blood orange season is short but sweet!
