How To Make Fresh Fruit Ice Cubes

Looking for a pretty way to stay cool on a hot summer day? Why not add a splash of color to your favorite beverage by making Fresh Fruit Ice Cubes that can be added to any drink. Well, maybe not to a cola…but a clear soda or seltzer, fruit juice, iced tea or a cocktail! Pretty for any party or get-together with friends and family!

These fruit ice cubes have are patriotic but fun to make all summer long. Made into stars these ice cubes are made with watermelon and blueberries.

What is the best fruit to use to make ice cubes?

Most all fruits freeze well so pick your favorites or choose ones that complement the drink you are placing them in.

These berries work well because they are small enough to fit into most ice cube trays.

  • raspberries
  • blueberries
  • blackberries

These fruits also work well but consider dicing into smaller pieces…

  • strawberries
  • kiwi
  • oranges
  • mango
  • watermelon

Also, lemons, limes and mint make up pretty ice cubes as well!

Supplies:

  • Ice Cube Tray
  • Cookie Cutter If Creating Shapes
  • Fresh Fruit
  • Water

 

They can be made in any shape ice cube tray, but I chose to use my Wilton Mini Star Silicone Mold that I bought to make these Patriotic Frozen Yogurt Stars.

If you are using the star mold make sure you star cookie cutter is the same size as or smaller than the bottom of the same mold. Cut the watermelon in 1/4″ slices. Use the cookie cutter to cut out watermelon {star} shapes. Place in the bottom of the mold and top with blueberries. Then cover with water and freeze. I recommend making these a couple of days before your get-together or party as you can only make six at a time.

There is also the option to use a standard ice cube tray and cut fruit into small chunks or use mini cookie cutters for small shapes.
