Grapefruit popsicles get an upgrade with sweet honey and creamy mascarpone.
For simple syrup:
3sprigs fresh mint
1 1/2cupsgrapefruit juice
3/4cuphoney mint simple syrupsee above
To make simple syrup, combine honey and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow to come to a gentle rolling simmer, stirring until honey is dissolved. Remove from heat. Add mint sprigs and allow to steep for 10-15 minutes. Remove mint and allow to cool to room temperature.
In a blender, combine grapefruit juice, honey mint simple syrup (it should be about 3/4 of a cup), mascarpone and lime juice. Blend until homogenous and creamy, about 15-20 seconds.
Carefully pour mixture into popsicle molds and insert popsicle sticks (depending on your popsicle mold, you may want to allow to freeze for 1-2 hours without popsicle sticks and then insert them). Freeze overnight, or for at least five hours total before serving. Enjoy!
