Flavored Berry Water
While shopping at the local drug store, I found some ice cube trays in the shape of stars (for the fourth of July of course). We enjoy making ice cubes of different foods, especially summer berries, and adding them to a tall, cold, glass of water! So, yesterday, we chopped up some strawberries and blueberries to make some flavored ice cubes. I can tell you personally, by the time these were frozen, they were in our water within minutes, and promptly consumed. The kids kept checking the freezer every hour waiting for the final product.
Here is what we did:
Chop berries small enough to fill the crevices of your shape, and push into your mold.
Then, put in freezer and freeze! Pop out when completely frozen and add to water.

Blueberries and Strawberries are super foods! They truly should have a place in every child's diet. They are
- High in antioxidants
- High in vitamins and minerals
- Low in calories
- and they taste amazing!!
