A tall glass of icy cold water can be a treat in itself, especially when it's hot out, but don't you sometimes want to drink something that's a little more fun? How about tossing in some funky ice cubes to add a splash of color and taste?
Find a funky ice-cube tray at your local kitchen store, grab your favorite juices, fruits, and herbs, and then it's time to get creative! .
To add color, make cubes with brightly-colored, healthy juices, such as pomegranate, blueberry, or purple grape, add natural food coloring to regular old water, or drop in slivers of brightly colored fruit, like blueberries or slices of lemon, lime, or orange peel.
To add flavor, run soft fruit (watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries and raspberries are great choices) through the blender and add a bit of water.
Then stick your creative cubes in the freezer, wait a few hours, and you're good to go!
