Please Pass A Berry Ice Cube

It's getting hot around here and a Berry Ice Cube sounds like a perfect summer time treat -- it's refreshing, healthy and a good source of Vitamin C. Here is how to make it (thanks to a recipe from Kuakini Health System).

Berry Ice Cubes

  • 12 ounces Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
  • 1 1/2 Cups Orange Juice
  • 1 Cup Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
  • 1 Ripe Banana

Combine ingredients in a blender, puree until smooth. Pour mixture into ice cube trays. Place trays in freezer for about 2 hours of until the mixture hardens. Ice cubes may be frozen up to 4 weeks.

Yield: 2 ice cube trays


Here's a easy favorite in our household -- frozen bananas on a stick. Just cut ripe bananas in half. Insert a popsicle stick in the cut side. Wrap with plastic wrap. Freeze. Enjoy!!! You can get fancy by adding a chocolate shell and nuts but we enjoy it best in this very simple way.
