Since Emma and I are doing everything we can to hold on to summer just a little longer, coupled with the fact that she has been asking for this frozen treat daily since realizing they have been so suddenly dropped from our routine, I decided to make her some ice pops.  Bored with our usual go-to popsicle recipes from the past few months, I remembered an idea for a new flavor I had seen just the other day from a blogger that was also looking to slow down time.  The fruits, the colors are so reminiscent of the season, that these grapefruit and pink lemonade ice pops were a perfect choice to help close out the summer.

Just mix grapefruit juice with pink lemonade in equal parts and set aside.  Slice fresh grapefruit and place along sides of your popsicle mold.  Pour juice mixture into the mold and over the sliced fruit.  Insert popsicle sticks before or after pouring, depending on which model mold you use.  Freeze and enjoy!

Luckily, I used this Zoku ice pop maker that I scored at T.J. Maxx earlier this summer (and that you can also find now on Amazon), which makes this sweet treat in only 7 minutes!  Ideal when serving up ice pops to impatient toddlers.
