This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Brita at Target. All opinions are 100% mine. Treat yourself to a healthy + delicious drink! And you’ll love how easy these Simple Fruit Ice Cubes are to make!
How are you doing on your 30 day water challenge? I was worried that I’d fall off the bandwagon, but even though I may not reach my goal every day, I’ve still made great progress! Especially since I now have a cute chart to remind me. 😉 And with the temperatures rising (we reached 90º the other day), I find that I haven’t had that swollen, tired, dehydrated feeling that normally comes when temps sky rocket.
So to treat myself on a job well done, and to also not derail my healthy lifestyle progress, I decided to create these citrus ice cubes. Because they’re beautiful, delicious, and refreshing.
Ok. I’m not going to lie. I don’t have ice cube trays. Our freezer makes cubes, so I never thought to buy some. I do, however, own a mini muffin tin. And an idea was born. And boy did I fall hard for these soft + beautiful colors.
Make your own Fruit Ice Cubes
- mini muffin tin (or any ice cube tray)
- citrus (I used grapefruit, oranges, lemons, and limes)
- filtered water (I used our trusty Brita Stream Filter that our family LOVES!)
- Cut up your citrus.
- Place in muffin tin or tray.
- Fill only half way with filtered water, so that your fruit doesn’t rise to the top.
- Freeze until solid.
- Finish filling to the top with water.
- Freeze until solid.
- Once frozen, place your tray on a cookie sheet filled with warm water to release the fruit ice cubes.
- Place in glasses, fill with more water, and enjoy!
You definitely want to make sure you use filtered water – it won’t look as cloudy, plus won’t add a weird taste to your drink. Trust me. You’re gonna want these babies to taste the best they can. Grab these sleek + efficiently designed Brita Stream Filter Pitchers (Available at Target)
I swooned when these popped out of the tin.
I love these way too much, especially since our freezer doesn’t use filtered water to make ice cubes – it’s the nasty tap flavored water that gags me. I know. I’m such an adult. 😉 But our Brita Pitcher reduces the nastiness of our water so I can actually enjoy it!
And yes, I still adore the filter as you pour technology Brita created. This momma doesn’t need any more things to try and remember! I love that I can fill and use the water right away.
Looking for a little bit more color, or flavor variety? You don’t need to go any further than your freezer! Grab a bag of frozen fruit, let it that a bit so you can separate the fruit if you’d like, add some of your citrus pieces, and you’ve got an even more amazing + beautiful glass of water!
And again, thanks to our Brita Stream Filter, my water tastes as gorgeous as it looks!
