Grapefruit Creamsicles


These Grapefruit Creamsicles are more than just a sweet treat and will definitely have your taste buds singing a sweet tune! I use a regular, store-bought vanilla ice cream for the creamy part because it’s just easier and saves so much more time than preparing your own but this recipe does describe steps to making the grapefruit sorbet made from sugar-water syrup combined with hibiscus tea, grapefruit zest and grapefruit juice.

To make Grapefruit Creamsicle, you will need the following ingredients:

Ingridiens for Grapefruit Creamsicles

Steps to make Grapefruit Creamsicles


Fill pan with vanilla ice cream

Scoop 1/2 quart vanilla ice cream into an 8 x 4 x 2½ -inch loaf pan and pack tightly along one side to fill one half.
Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 1 hour until firm.


Prepare sugar water

In a small saucepan, boil 1¼ cups sugar in 1¼ cups water and stir until sugar is dissolved.


Infuse with dried hibiscus

Remove the saucepan from the heat and add 2 hibiscus tea bags or 2 teaspoons of dried hibiscus flowers and 1 tablespoon of grapefruit zest. Set aside for 10 minutes to steep then remove tea bags and discard.


Add grapefruit juice

Add 1½ cups grapefruit juice and stir to mix well.



Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour to chill until cold.


Process in ice cream maker

Transfer to an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer sorbet to the other half of the loaf pan.



Cover with plastic wrap and freeze again for about 2 hours until firm.



To serve, scoop across the middle of the vanilla ice cream and grapefruit sorbet to form swirled scoops.

I really like the colors in this, white and soft red, I know it has nothing to do with taste but it gives off a happy and calm feeling.

The wait is worth it for sure but I messed up on making it twice so it's no rookie recipe.
