Yum: Fruity Summer Striped Ice Cubes
Written by: Allison Swan
If you're craving a smoothie but don't have the time to whip out the blender, make these pretty and practical juice and smoothie ice cubes, which can be frozen and saved to have on hand anytime you need a juicy kick! You might have seen this photo on Pinterest by Joy Cho—it’s one of the most-pinned recipes on the site. I've tracked down the recipe for the combinations in the famous photo so that you can make your very own. Here’s how:
Juices: Use store-bought grapefruit juice, mango juice, limeade, and strawberry juice.
Smoothies: Combine kiwi, cucumber, mint, and lime to make a beautiful green smoothie blend. If you want to make it extra healthy, add carrots, beets, and cucumbers to the mix.
Coconut milk: Layer cubes with coconut milk, which can be poured right from the can.
Simply add layers of pre-made juice, smoothies, and coconut milk to standard ice cube trays. Once frozen, add the ice cubes to some sparkling water for a dose of fruit, or store in the freezer so you can have smoothies on hand whenever you want.
