You will find plenty of these ice cubes in my freezer during the hot..."very hot" summer months. I use juices that contain fruit but are light. The red cubes are made from Ocean Spray Light Cranberry juice. It tastes so good and has 2/3 less calories.
Because we enjoy Clear Choice drinks, especially white grape, I just add 1 or 2 cubes to each glass and I have a delicious, refreshing summer drink.


After freezing cubes in ice trays, I fill plastic containers with them and return them to the freezer, ready at a moment's notice.


This is a recipe that is requested in my family. It is so easy to make and the recipe makes a big portion that lasts for quite a long time when stored in an airtight container. I made this for an upcoming baby shower that I am working on.



This is the recipe I use. I use Cheese Nips instead of fish crackers sometimes, and I add some peanuts with the cashews. I serve little glass bowls of this mix when I serve the above mentioned drink. If you stop in sometime I will serve you this combo:)

Just in case you are looking for a quick snack.

Thanks for the tip - I am trying to drink more water, this would help me get my water in and it is so much prettier than a plain glass of water!

Your ice cubes look so pretty and refreshing too. At first glance I thought they were cubes of watermelon and cantelope. What a great way to make a summer drink extra special.
Your snack mix looks so good and something my boys would enjoy. Personally, I'd like to stop by and enjoy some with you :-).

Judy, love your blog and stories! Thanks for visiting mine. I thought I would share a website, called picnik.com with you. It's a free and fun way to enhance your photos. Of course, you can upgrade, but I haven't had to yet. It takes really good pictures and makes them really great. Have fun and thanks visiting my blog.
