Strawberry Valentine’s Day Ice-Cubes
(1) heart-shaped ice-cube tray (Forever 21 or Amazon)
(1) carton of strawberries
water & a freezer
Step 1. Bring a pot of water to boil. Once the water is done boiling, let it sit & cool. By boiling the water, you’re reducing cloudiness, while the water settles clear in the ice-cube tray.
Step 2. As the water boils, take this time to wash your strawberries thoroughly.
Step 3. Carefully slice your fruit, and cut into eighths. 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).
Step 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).
Step 5. Carefully place the ice-cube trays into the freezer. Allow at least 4 hours to completely freeze.
Step 6. Pop the ice cubes out of the tray, serve immediately and enjoy!
This recipe also works great with raspberries, peaches, lemons 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 Forever 21, but are available all over.
