Want to add a little color and sweetness to your still or sparkling water? Try frozen watermelon cubes! According to Camilla Fabbri of Family Chic, making these refreshing ice cubes couldn't be simpler: just cut watermelon, place in a bowl, and freeze overnight. We think spheres of watermelon, cut with a melon baller, would be pretty, too.
This idea could really come in handy on those occasions when you can't eat a huge watermelon right away. Freezing the pieces on a tray would prevent them from sticking to each other. Transfer them to a freezer bag or container, and they should last a few months.
