It’s another one of those days when I have to sit at an auto lounge waiting for something to be done with my car. I would normally bring a book or mag with me on such trips but I forgot this time as I was rushing out the door (as always). Good thing they had some decent magazines lying around and I picked up the August issue of Family Fun. I was delighted to find that this issue had some great ideas for cool summer treats and the one that caught my eye was their Rainbow Ice Cubes.


This is such a simple but fun thing to do. All that was required were some fruits and an ice cube tray. As soon as my car was ready, I headed to the closest grocery store and bought some strawberries and nectarines for my fruit freeze. I already had green grapes and blueberries in the fridge. These juicy fruits will surely taste good and look great together.


I sliced the strawberries and grapes. As for the nectarines, I cubed them instead. Blueberries can be whole as they would fit easily into an ice cube. Place a combination of fruits in each little cube in the ice tray and top with water or seltzer. Place the tray in the freezer and two hours later you get fruit freeze.


Fill glass with ginger ale, fruit juice,

water, or whatever takes your fancy, and drop in a few cubes of these beauties. It’s a real treat on a hot day!

Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day!
