Recipe for the most nutrient-dense popsicle ever. This is the perfect way to turn your favorite refreshing drink into a delightful frozen treat. Very easy to make. Check it out now on Foodal.



  • 1 grapefruit, peeled and cut in quarters
  • 1 orange, peeled and cut in quarters
  • 8 to 10 leaves of fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup raw honey


Combine all ingredients in a powerful blender (like a Vitamix or a food processor perhaps). Enjoy as a refreshing drink or pour into popsicle molds and freeze until firm.


Leaving the grapefruit and orange pith in the mixture gives it a slight bitterness, much the way eating grapefruit slices with the pith will do. As stated above, we chose to leave it in for the nutritional value, adding honey to cut the bite a little, but you could easily swap the whole citrus fruits with pure juice and have something very nice.
