You will need:
• Blender (although you could mash the fruit quite successfully in a bowl if you want to do it ‘low-tech’ style!)
• Ice cube trays
• Your favorite fruit
Put the desired fruit in the blender and either puree or blend for a shorter time in order to leave some chunks (notice how great this looks with berries, kiwi and other fruit). Pour the blended fruit into your ice cube trays, freeze and you’re done!
There’s nothing to stop you from mixing up the different fruit types, however for a variety of different colors such as the ones in the pic, you will want to blend up each fruit type separately. A good thing about this is that there is no wasted fruit – assuming you have enough ice trays and space for them in the freezer compartment. Simply pour in the fruit until you’ve used it all, then start on the next fruit!
Here are some fruit types you could use. Can you think of any more? Let us know how you get on in the comments!
• Kiwi fruit
• Berries (blueberry, strawberry, blackberry etc)
As to the drinks themselves – you could add these ice cubes to lemonades, cocktails or even to your “detox water” that you drink throughout the day…. enjoy!
