  1. Grate the carrots (we used a food processor to make this easier). Place the grated carrot into a clean cloth, wrap tightly, and then squeeze the juice out of the carrots and into a bowl.
  2. Zest one orange. Then juice the oranges and finely dice the mandarin. Combine the carrot juice, orange juice and diced mandarin in a small bowl. Stir through the confectioners sugar (powdered sugar) and taste (if it's still too sour, then add more if needed).
  3. Pour into the popsicle moulds and place in the freezer to freeze overnight. If you are adding wooden sticks to your ice blocks (instead of using the popsicle holder tops), then add them about 2 hours after they go into the freezer. This way the liquid will be icy enough to keep them upright.
  4. To remove the popsicles from the holder submerge the holder in warm water for about 2 minutes, then gently squeeze them out.
  5. Enjoy!

     Storage Tip: If you want to keep the popsicles for a future date store them in small plastic bags in the freezer.

Buying Tips

 Make your orange juice and orange zest from fresh oranges.

Gluten Free Tips

Most icing sugars (powdered sugar) are gluten free, however some do contain wheat starch. This means you should check that your icing/powdered sugar is gluten free.
