2. As the water boils, take this time to wash your fruit thoroughly.
3. Carefully slice your fruit, and cut into fours. When cutting the fruit, have the ice-cube tray near by so you can size the fruit to make sure it is not too big. (Too give the ice character, you can cut the fruit just a little bit larger, allowing the fruit to pop out the tops of the tray).
4. After the water has cooled and the fruit is prepared, place the fruit into each cubicle of the tray, covering each fruit filled cube with water. (I pour the cooled water into a measuring cup to make for easier to pouring).
5. Carefully place the ice-cube trays into the freezer. Allow at least 4 hours to completely freeze.
6. Pop the cubes out of the tray and serve immediately.
This recipe also works great with raspberries, strawberries, peaches, and limes, but feel free to get creative.
*Ice cubes can also be made mini baking pans, if a tray is not available to you, just allow a little more of a freezing period.
Silicone ice-cube tray’s shown above are available at Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
