Try this cute idea to amp up the fruit in your kids diet in a fun way! You’ll love how easy they are to create and the kids will love the idea of a frozen treat. Add them to water to create a refreshing natural fruit flavored drink on those hot summer days.
To prepare ice cubes, simply choose a favorite fruit, peel, pit and add to blender, puree, and your done! If the fruits you are pureeing seem quite thick, add just a touch of 100% apple juice to the blender, just enough to thin it out.
No special equipment (other than a blender and an ice cube tray) is needed to make these flavored fruit cubes. Just puree the fruit, pour it into a standard ice cube tray, freeze, and pop into a drink whenever the kids are looking to cool down. It’s good idea to have a different fruit cube for each drink to allow for a more distinct flavor in the water. There’s no faster, or healthier way to turn a drink from everyday to gourmet!
