supercute fruity ice cubes! ♥

Here is a supercute idea for the summer parties...pick your favorite fruits, blend and freeze!

Puree only very ripe fruits. The riper the fruit, the sweeter it is, so you can’t hack into a green peach, plop it into your blender, and expect a sugar-sweet ice cube to magically appear. Instead, choose fruits that are extremely ripe and soft, even those that are nearing the brink of almost inedible (but never puree fruit that has been molded or badly bruised. The flavor will come through in the final product, and so will the bacteria. Ick.)

Prepare with natural fruit juices, not water. To prepare ice cubes, simply choose a favorite fruit, peel, pit and plop it in a blender, puree, and your done! If the fruits you are pureeing don’t have enough natural juices to move freely through the blender blades, add just a touch of apple juice to the mixture, just enough to thin it out. Adding water to the fruit will cause the ice cubes to dilute drinks, rather than flavor them.

Freeze in a standard ice cube tray. No special equipment (other than a blender) is needed to make these flavored fruit cubes. Just puree the fruit, pour it into a standard ice cube tray, freeze, and plop into a drink whenever needed. There’s no faster, or healthier way to turn a drink from everyday to gourmet! enjoy!
