Now back to those tangy grapefruit yogurt popsicles. I decided to think outside the box and be a little daring when I developed this recipe. Normally, I cling to traditional flavors but why not take a chance, right? Have you ever been to Disney World? There is an old famous restaurant called the Brown Derby. They recreated the famous Hollywood restaurant. One of my favorite desserts there is the Grapefruit Cake Recipe.  I have been dying to recreate it for a blog post but have not had a chance. Then I had a wild and crazy idea; maybe I could make popsicle play on the old dessert recipe.

Buttermilk and yogurt  are high in potassium, vitamin B12, calcium, riboflavin and a good source of phosphorus.  Did you know buttermilk is also easier to digest? I decided to combine the nutrient rich benefits of buttermilk alongside the raw milk pro-biotic potential of Greek yogurt to make this healthy treat.

Tangy Grapefruit Yogurt Popsicles {Recipe}

  • 5 oz. Greek Yogurt
  • 1 oz. Buttermilk
  • 2 large grapefruits
  • 6 tbsps. organic sugar
  • 3 tbsps. water


  1. In a small bowl combine the Greek yogurt and the buttermilk. Set aside.
  2. Juice each of the grapefruits and strain the liquid through a strainer. Twice.
  3. In a small sauce pan heat the grapefruit juice, water and sugar on low until the sugar is all melted. Approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Do not let the liquid boil.  Remove from heat and allow it to cool.
  5. Combine the grapefruit juice mixture and the dairy mixture with a whisk, till it is completely smooth.
  6. Fill each popsicle mold with the mixture. Fills approximate 8 to 10 popsicles depending on the size.
  7. Freeze for 6 hours and enjoy!

I don’t know about you but I have had trouble with popsicle molds. A lot of times my popsicles get stuck or break as we are trying to get them out of the mold. We tried warm water and letting the popsicles sit, but nothing worked.  The other day when I was at Sur La Table, I saw a product that looked a little bit intriguing.  A company named Mastrad developed a popsicle mold with a silicone holder that is easy and quick to remove. The other feature that I love is the domed cup. The drips end up in the cup and not on your clothes. Finally a popsicle mold that doesn’t break the popsicle!
