Detox Ice Cubes

When I think “August,” I think of hot and humid summer days. On these long scorching days, staying hydrated is of the utmost importance, so I love to make a few trays of detox ice cubes to throw into my water. Not only is this a fun way to keep up on your water intake, but it also packs in nutrients and antioxidants into your water, which helps to keep your skin clear, energy levels up, etc.

I either take a few and put them in my glass/water bottle, or if I have guests over, I like to take a giant pitcher to fill with water and pile in a whole bunch of these bad boys. They flavor your water subtly and the different tastes blend together perfectly. Possibly my favorite part is that as the ice cubes melt, you’re left with pitcher reminiscent of my favorite sangria (minus the wine, sadly).

    These look absolutely amazing. My boyfriend’s mom found a recipe on Pinterest and made something like this, but they weren’t berries that’s for sure! I love berries so this is awesome, and they’re so pretty! xx Adaleta Avdic

    I love doing this too. I usually use oranges and strawberries. These recipes sound yummy too.
