Cool Ways To Be Healthy!

In the August issue of Whole Living one of the articles featured ice cubes infused with fruits, veggies, and herbs.  What a great way to keep cool and keep it healthy.

Icecubes fruit

Cucumber Basil Puree: Combine 1 cup water, 1 cucumber (peeled and seeded), 1/4 cup torn basil, and a pinch of coarse salt in a blender and freeze in an ice-cube tray.

Orange Lime Mix: Place 1 1/2 cups orange juice, 2 tablespoons lime juice, and 1 teaspoon lime zest in a bowl and freeze as above.

Lemonade Raspberry: Dissolve 2 tablespoons sugar in 1 cup warm water. Stir in 1/3 cup lemon juice. Divide 6 ounces of fresh raspberries into a ice-cube tray. Place a sprig of mint in each cube. Add lemonade and freeze.
