Ice Cubes With Taste: 5 Delicious Ideas | Dennispoint Campground MD

Layered ice cubes flavored with fruit puree

Deep-frozen fruit purées give your summer drinks an intensely fruity aroma. And layered fruit puree ice cubes look great too.


  1. You will need an ice cube tray, a blender or immersion blender, and fruit. For a particularly pretty layered look, combine, for example, kiwi, watermelon and mango.
  2. Choose three types of fruit and puree each fruit in a separate container.
  3. Fill the ice cube tray one-third full with one of the purees. Then place the mold in the freezer.
  4. Be sure to freeze each layer completely before pouring the next. This ensures that the individual layers do not mix and the look comes together.
  5. When the puree is frozen, add the next layer of fruit on top. Then put the ice cube tray back in the freezer.
  6. Repeat this step with the last layer as well.
  7. Add the layered ice cubes to a homemade iced tea, juice spray, or rainbow cocktail you’ve made yourself.

Ice cubes with herbs, fruits and juices

Herbs, fruits, and juices also add a variety of flavor to your ice cubes.

  • Herbs – For a cool summer drink like iced tea or a cocktail, place herbs like mint, basil, or rosemary in the ice cube trays, then pour water over them.
  • Fruits: Raspberries, currants or blueberries are particularly suitable for creating fruity and delicious ice cubes. Separate the berries by type or mix them in the molds before adding water.
  • Juice: If the mash takes too long, you can also use prepared juices. Especially sweet and sour juices such as passion fruit, lemon or strawberry give your drinks a delicious aroma.
  • Milk: For a wonderfully fresh iced coffee, fill the molds with milk or non-dairy milk and place the milk cubes in your iced coffee. Conversely, if you like your iced coffee less strong, simply freeze the chilled coffee and put the finished ice cubes in a glass of milk.
