Edible Ice Packs

We love a good multi-tasking tool when it comes to the kitchen. Same goes for packed lunches, as they're often pressed for space. We love the idea of packing an edible frozen item with lunch that will keep the contents cool and will be just thawed come lunchtime:

Some ideas for edible ice packs to throw into box lunches for work or school:

  • fruit cups
  • a jar of water or juice
  • pudding (If it's still a little frozen come lunch time, all the more yum!)
  • yogurt cups

Have you ever used an edible ice pack in a work or school lunch? Please add to our list of possibilities in the comments below!
