When I pulled them out of the freezer I added them to a glass of lemonade and they looked so cute! I think I’ll definitely experiment with different ways to make red ice cubes--like the lemon and strawberry mixture I mentioned.
Heart Shaped Ice Cubes
Friday, January 18, 2013
Back in December I went shopping for my little sisters Christmas gift, and while I was waiting in line I noticed all the bins filled with things that stores are hoping we’ll buy last minute, haha, and I saw this super cute heart shaped ice-cube tray—and had to have it. I thought this would be so cute for Valentine’s Day and for my blog as well. I have to tell you though, my original idea was to make the ice cubes red by using frozen strawberries and lemon juice—so it would be a natural and healthy recipe—but my local market didn't have any frozen strawberries! I was so sad, but I didn't want to skip this tutorial; so, I decided to use water and food coloring instead. Food coloring is in many of our foods that we eat, but keep in mind that some people have allergies when it comes to food coloring. So I think the safest way to go would be using a mixture of frozen strawberries and lemon juice—you can simply blend those ingredients and pour them into the tray (that would probably taste better, too). Luckily, I’m not allergic to food coloring so I’m going to give it a go.
So, first you’ll need this super cute ice cube tray; and, you can find this at Forever21 or at Ikea. Next, you’ll need a cup of water (or lemon juice) and place a couple drops of the food coloring into the cup of water and mix. After you've done that, you can pour this mixture into the tray, place it into the freezer, and leave it in there until they’re frozen.
