Refreshing Fruit Ice Cubes For Summer
With Summer comes the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables that are so good to eat! If you’re looking for new ways to use garden produce, try freezing them in ice cube trays. Refreshing fruit ice cubes for Summer are so easy to make and taste delicious! Once frozen, the ice cubes can be added to a clear pitcher of water and served on a warm Summer day. Not only are they refreshing and hydrating, but fruit, herb, and veggie ice cubes provide additional vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that you wouldn’t normally get from drinking plain water.
What To Use
You can use any combination of fruit and vegetable that you like (or whatever you have an abundance of). I like to have a wide variety of colors and shapes when making my ice cubes. For fruit, I like to use blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, kiwi, lemon, and pineapple. With vegetables, I like to use cucumbers and beets. For herbs, I like to use mint, rosemary, and basil. You might wonder what the difference is between frozen fruit in ice cubes and water with fruit in it. The only difference I see is that when I freeze the fruit in ice cube trays, I have more control of the fruit. Because the fruit is frozen, I can just add the ice cubes when I’m ready, and the fruit is fresh. When I use fresh fruit in water, the fruit stays in the water for hours and is not quite as fresh, but I use both methods.
Have you ever made ice cubes with fruits and vegetables? What’s your favorite combination?
1. Assemble your fresh produce
2. Cut off stems and place fruit, veggies, and/or herbs in trays
3. Fill ice cube trays with water
4. Freeze for 24 hours
5. Put filled ice cubes in a pitcher of cold water and serve!
