Lemon Blueberry Mint Ice Cubes

We are in the middle of a blizzard so naturally I’m making ice cubes. What? It’s important to stay hydrated while watching Hubband and the kid shovel snow. I kid, I do my fair share of shoveling.

I love water. It’s my go to drink. But sometimes I just need a little more flavor and these cubes are perfect for that. I just toss a few in my water bottle every morning. They are also super versatile. You can use any number of flavor combinations.

What You’ll Need

icecubes

ice cube tray

blueberries – or whichever fruit you’d like

lemon juice

mint – I used mint we dehydrated from our garden last summer.

That’s it. Put a few berries in each slot, add a splash of lemon juice, a pinch of mint and freeze. Toss them into your water and enjoy!

Infused Water

photoI may be the thirstiest person on the planet.  I’m always chugging water.  I take it with me everywhere.  You name the type of water bottle, I probably own it.  I’m proud to say I’m passing this obsession on to my daughter.

Even though it’s my go to beverage, I occasionally tire of plain water.  Enter infused waters!  This time of year is particularly awesome for them because there is so much fresh, local produce available.  Making them couldn’t be easier.  Really.  All you need is a 2 quart container for your filtered water, cut up fruits, veggies, herbs, and a fridge. Throw it all together and chill overnight.   My two current favorites are cucumber, ginger, mint and pineapple, lemon, apple mint.  Play around with different combinations until you find ones you like.  Stay hydrated friends!
