So, if you’re like me and you’re obsessed/addicted/in love with Pinterest you’ve probably seen pretty ice cubes all over the place – flower ice cubes, fruit ice cubes, uh… other ice cubes? Well, I have been pinning pretty ice cubes for like two years to all of my Pinterest boards and then it occurred to me, maybe I should actually make some! PS. If you’re a Pinterest addict like me, make sure you check out my boards and give me a follow, I’m always pinning cute stuff! ?
The good news? This is probably the EASIEST recipe or tutorial on my entire site. And one of the cutest! Well, I don’t know if that’s by popular vote, but I sure do think they look pretty!
Literally all you have to do is make sure the pieces of fruit/flowers/etc you want to use will fit in the ice cube tray slots. The raspberries I used fit in perfectly so I didn’t even need to chop them, and I just sliced up the strawberries and oranges and was ready to go!
The hardest part of this recipe is washing the fruit. Not-even-kidding. Wash it well (no one likes dirty ice cubes!) then chop it up, and add water and freeze! One tip I’d suggest you try is using filtered water for your ice cubes! It’s really easy to fill them up by the tap, but if you just grab your Brita pitcher and use filtered water your drink will taste cleaner when your ice cubes start to melt.
This recipe is great, because you can use any fruit you have on hand!! I prepared these at night and stuck them in the freezer overnight. When I woke up in the morning they were ready to use! These are so easy. If you’re going to make ice cubes anyways, why not jazz them up with fruit!
They look really pretty in filtered water or sparkling water! I like using clear glasses so you can see them really well! They also look great in cocktails or mocktails. These fruit ice cubes take your drink to the next level and will wow anyone drinking them!
