For a beautiful, summery treat, how about making fruity ice cubes? Just layer pureed fruit, fruit juice, or other smoothie ingredients in a ice cube tray — mango juice, strawberry juice, maybe a little coconut milk or yogurt — then pop in the freezer!
We've talked about fruit juice ice cubes before, but I was reminded how lovely an idea it is when I saw this post recently by Joy Cho of Oh Joy! She uses her fruity, striped ice cubes as pretty (and tasty!) water enhancers, and as a quick base for smoothies.
Do you have a favorite fruit combo you like to freeze into ice cubes?
