Cucumber Flavored Ice Cubes

Our MDW travel plans got put on hold so a relaxing weekend at home it was! Well, as much as we could relax with three little ones hopping in and out of blow up pools and sprinklers for 3 days!

These cucumber ice cubes have been a favorite for our entire family lately. They are SO easy to make and perfect to pop in a glass or water (or vodka!) for a refreshing drink. It’s a simple idea but one I wish I had thought of before.

Cucumber water is great for hot summer days and drinking it always reminds me of the spa.

I like to prep the night before so the flavor soaks in and use muffin tins for larger cubes.

Cucumber Ice Cubes

  1. Soak the cucumbers in a pitcher of water the night before (or at least for a couple hours to flavor the water).

2. Freeze the cucumber water šŸ„’ in muffin trays (this muffin pan has been great). You can add herbs or lemon juice in them too for a little extra flavor. I started my first herb garden over the weekend so I’m going to try adding basil or mint next time.

3. Add to a drink dispenser, glass of water (or vodka, etc.) and enjoy!

I like to store them in the freezer in a freezer safe container. Using parchment paper in between helps so they don’t stick together.

I did some gardening over the weekend and started a dresser makeover that I luckily found on Saturday. Our town opened up a little with sidewalk shopping (including a favorite consignment place!). It was great to get out of the house and feel a little sense of normalcy again in our community. We wore masks, and safely kept our distance of course.

PS. for those that have asked, I’m 6 months pregnant now (26 weeks!), feeling good and still have not started the nursery! More updates coming – thank you!!

Hope you had a nice long weekend ~ cheers to the start of summer!

UPDATED TO ADD:

The lemon ones are just as good! I squeezed lemon into the water, froze the water and have been using these almost every day. The kids LOVE them too. The think they are drinking lemonade šŸ™‚
