So here’s the thing…. I made ice.
Actually, my freezer made ice. I put strawberries and water in an ice cube tray.
Not everything is yeasted, risen, covered in cinnamon, or battered and fried. Sometimes we need something as simple as… ice.
If you’re still with me, just imagine all of the possible combinations! Blueberry lime ice. Strawberry mint ice. Pineapple ice. Lemon raspberry ice. Cocktail enhancers!
Consider the real-life application of Strawberry Ice: in lemonade (with or without vodka).
Any real-life application in my house usually involves my cat.
You might also consider Strawberry Cream Puffs aaaand Strawberry Upside Down Cake with Cardamom.
This is beyond easy.
Start with your fruit.
Smash it and mash it. Place it in the ice cube slots.
Pour water over and toss it in the freezer.
Top frozen cubes with lemonade… or really any beverage that you want to turn strawberry-y.
You know that scene in Bridesmaids when Kristen Wiig is going to the Parisian wedding shower, with the giant cookie, and she’s super pissed at how amazing the Strawberry Lemonade is? This is that. Exactly.
Oh… and if you haven’t yet seen Bridesmaids… that was a major spoiler. Kidding.
It seems really silly to put a recipe below… but I’m going to, because that’s what I do here. Don’t hate. Appreciate.
makes 12 cubes
3 large strawberries, mashed and chopped
ice cube tray
Place a combination of mashed and chopped strawberries in each ice cube slot. Pour enough filtered water to fill the tray. Freeze until frozen through and serve with cocktails and lemonade.
I do this with herbs; mostly to preserve them, and use them later. but the mint cubes are excellent with water or lemonade. Also, you could add tiny chunks of lime or lemon.
This looks amazing!! You are very clever. I bet this would be delicious with blueberries as well.
This is a great idea. I will use this at the next party.
