July skies can conjure up some of the hottest weather of the year, and New York has proved this statement more correct than I could have imagined. Hot, sweltering days often result in me wishing for any cold treat so I decided to get a little thrifty.  Instead of ice cube popsicles (which I also highly recommend), I decided to make some fruit cubes to refreshen water and make it a little more fun and tasty.

Here’s how I did it:

1. Pick some fruit to put in the ice tray.  If you’re picking a bigger fruit, make sure to cut it up, and get rid of the rhine or seeds.  If they’re small like blueberries you can put them straight in.



(I used blueberries and raspberries.)

2. Boil some water (boiled water will make the ice cubes clear)

3. Pour the water into the tray and place the fruit in the cubes and freeze overnight!


(Here’s what mine looked like after they froze.)

4. Put them in some water (or a drink of your choice, though it might taste a little weird) and enjoy!!!


Tip: Reminder to stay hydrated throughout the summer!! It’s way too easy to forget, but hopefully with these cute cubes you’ll remember!
