Fruit Filled Ice Cubes make you look like the entertaining queen. They also help you drink more water!
I’m always looking for ways to make drinking water more appealing. I never used to have that problem, but it seems like it’s a constant battle, always reminding myself to fill my water cup.
Fruit Filled Ice Cubes with Mint
With the abundance of berries this time of year and my flourishing mint plant, I decided to try the latest craze of freezing Fruit Filled Ice Cubes with a hint of mint. If anything, I may think it’s a Mojito! I love mojitos!
How To Make Fruit Filled Ice Cubes
Since my refrigerator has an automatic ice maker, I went out a bought a bigger ice tray than I have for when I make my yogurt cubes for smoothies.
Gather and rinse the fruit you want to add. I happened to have blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. I also picked a sprig of mint, washed it and plucked the leaves off.
I tucked a variety in each section. Truth be told…… mine were a little overfilled. I’ll show you what to avoid later.
But I had to have a variety of color….. had to!
Fill each section with water trying to cover all the fruit. Place it in your freezer and in about 3 hours, you’ll have the most gorgeous ice cubes you’ve ever seen. You’ll suddenly want to drink water all day long!
Remember when I said to make sure your fruit is submerged?
This is why. Those beautiful blueberries, if not fully covered with water, will end up looking like the Loch ness monster.
I still kept mine, because they’ll still taste fine and once in the water, they’ll look ok. But if you’re serving to guests…… save these for yourself or throw out.
Add a few ice cubes to your glass and fill it up with either filtered water, tap water, sparkling water…… whatever kind you prefer. For fun, add a cute and colorful paper straw.
I’m going to try limes and lemons next and add them to my Brazilian Lemonade.
I like to fill my glass with these ice cubes, sparkling water and a few drops of Lemon Drop Stevia! I pick mine up at New Seasons or Whole Foods. You can also order it here.(affiliate link)Stevia is a natural sweetener that is sugar free and doesn’t spike your blood sugar. I also have the vanilla cream drops, and oh my goodness! If you like cream soda….. then try the vanilla drops with sparkling water. I’m not much of a soda drinker, but I do occasionally crave carbonation. This does the trick.
My daily routine is a squeeze a lemon into filtered water, fill with ice cubes and add a few drops of the lemon stevia. Makes it easy to drinks a lot more water!
I prefer this brand of drops. I’ve tried another brand in an apricot flavor and it just tasted like I was drinking perfume, kind of like when I’m drinking anything cherry flavored…..taste like cough syrup to me.
But Sweet Drops have many many flavors. I have only tried the Vanilla Cream and the Lemon Drop. But they have Coconut, Chocolate, Hazelnut, Valencia, Berry, etc… See all the flavors here. (affiliate link)
