I’m back. I’m committed. I’m determined.

Fruity Striped Ice Cubes.

Because plain ice cubes are too boring. These ice cubes are made of fruit juice, smoothie and coconut milk. You could simply play around with any combinations you love.

Adds a whole new dimension to your drinks, not to mention its beauty. A sure conversation starter at any party. Great to get your picky kids to drink some fruity goodness too. 

  • JUICES: I used store-bought grapefruit juice, mango juice, limeade, and made some strawberry/beet juice.
  • SMOOTHIES: I combined kiwi, cucumber, mint and lime make for a beautiful green smoothie blend.
  • COCONUT MILK: I layered a lot of these cubes with coconut milk, which can be poured right from the can.

Play around with your combination, the choices are endless.

Poppy love.
