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.

Fruit Ice Cubes

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!)


  1. Cut up your citrus.
  2. Place in muffin tin or tray.
  3. Fill only half way with filtered water, so that your fruit doesn’t rise to the top.
  4. Freeze until solid.
  5. Finish filling to the top with water.
  6. Freeze until solid.
  7. Once frozen, place your tray on a cookie sheet filled with warm water to release the fruit ice cubes.
  8. 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.

Gorgeous Grapefruit.

Luscious Lemon.

Lovely Lime.

Outstanding Orange.

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!
