Notes

There are several varieties of coloured grapefruit, sometimes know as ruby, pink or red.  You can use any of these in this recipe or even regular grapefruit.  
Blood oranges give these popsicles the amazing sunset colour.  If you can't get blood oranges you could use regular oranges and either leave them as they are, or add a few drops of red food colour to amp up red colour.
