It is one of those days when I have to sit in an auto lounge waiting for something to be done to my car. I would normally bring a book or magazine with me on such trips but I forgot this time as I was in a rush. Good thing they had some pretty decent magazines lying around. I picked up the August issue of Family Fun and was delighted to find some great ideas for cool summer treats.
The one that caught my eye was their rainbow ice cubes. Since it is Friday, I decided to name my ice cubes Fun Friday Fruit Freeze. This is such a simple and fun thing to do. All that is needed are some fruits and an ice cube tray.
As soon as my car was ready, I headed to the closest grocery store and bought a bunch of fruits for my Fun Friday Fruit Freeze. I wanted a nice mix of colors. Since I already have some blueberries in the freezer, I chose some raspberries and a pineapple. These fruits would surely taste and look great together.
The blueberries and raspberries can be left whole as they are small enough to fit into an ice cube. The pineapple should be cut into small cubes. Place a combination of fruits in each little section of the ice cube tray and top with water or seltzer. Place the tray in the freezer and two hours later you have these delightful Fun Friday Fruit Freeze.
- ½ cup blueberries
- ½ cup raspberries
- ½ cup pineapples, cubed or fruit of choice
- Water, fruit juice, ginger ale, or soda
- Place a combination of fruits in each little section of the ice cube tray and top with water or seltzer.
- Transfer to the freezer and allow ice cubes to freezer for at least a couple of hours.
- Remove and place a few fruity ice cubes in a glass. Top with water, fruit juice, ginger ale, or soda.
Place a few cubes of these beauties in a glass. Top with water, fruit juice, ginger ale, or soda. It’s a real treat on a hot summer’s day!
