Are you guilty of not drinking enough water, like me? The health benefits of intaking plenty of water are without question. To make the task a bit more fun and pretty too, simply freeze bits of your favorite fruits and herbs inside ice cubes! Keep a tray on hand to add to your glass for a subtle infused flavor and aroma. Not only will you be adding interest, but you’ll be jazzing up your H2O with detox, immune-boosting and other beneficial qualities. Citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit, lime, etc) and berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries) are great. Mint, sage, basil and rosemary are lovely herb choices. Trust me, your children will get a kick out of the bright colors, textures and flavor as well!
The beauty of fruit and herb ice cubes is that there is no right or wrong way. You don’t have to follow a recipe. Play and have fun with it. Use what you enjoy! Some of my favorite combinations are…
LEMON + ROSEMARY
BLACKBERRY + SAGE
GRAPEFRUIT + LEMON + LAVENDER + MINT
STRAWBERRY + BASIL
