Super cool Fruit Freeze, the perfect treat on a hot summer’s day. These fruity ice cubes are a fun and delicious way to liven up your beverages.
It is one of those days when I had 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 this time I simply forgot. 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.
Rainbow Ice Cubes and Fruit Freeze (Fruity Ice Cubes)
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.
Small Berries and Cubed Fruits
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.
