Strawberry Grapefruit Mint Popsicles (Paleo/Primal)

If you're making my 5-Minute Strawberry Sorbet you're halfway to these refreshing popsicles! 

Popsicle molds are great to have on hand; they are perfect for quick and refreshing summer treats. I like to use ours to make "Fudgesicles" and fruit pops. I often use the pulp from whatever we are juicing, along with a little bit of the juice itself, to make quick and nutritious popsicles. This recipe, with grapefruit, strawberry, and grapefruit mint is super refreshing, simple, and tart. Feel free to add a bit of sweetener if you deem it necessary, or up to 1 ounce alcohol. If you don't have grapefruit mint, you can of course substitute whatever kind of mint you have growing in your herb garden.

Isn't mint the best to grow?! As long as it's contained in a pot it's lovely and you basically can't kill it. I have several varieties growing in my garden including grapefruit mint, spearmint, peppermint, and chocolate mint.

Strawberry Grapefruit Mint Popsicles
primal / paleo / gluten-free / sweetener-free
Yield: (4) 3-ounce popsicles*

8 ounces strawberry puree
approx. 10-12 strawberries
4 ounces grapefruit juice 
approx. one grapefruit
4 grapefruit-mint leaves

Use a food processor to puree fresh or frozen strawberries, then measure 8 ounces into a bowl (I like to start with frozen strawberries and use any leftovers for 5-Minute Strawberry Sorbet). Add 4 ounces of grapefruit juice. Finely mince the mint and add it in.

Mix thoroughly, pour into popsicle molds, and freeze for about 2-4 hours or overnight before serving (depending on the temperature of your freezer). Enjoy!

*If you have different size molds simply adjust to suit in a ratio of 2 part strawberry to 1 part 
grapefruit with 1 mint leaf per popsicle
Melty goodness!
