Trying to drink more water? Me too! These flavored ice cubes are the easiest way to jazz up my water and encourage me to drink more!
A couple weeks ago I posted a project on how I make whole lemon ice cubes in attempt to drink more water. Apparently, I’m not the only one trying to kick the coffee habit. I was so surprised how popular this post was, especially considering I wasn’t planning on blogging about it (lemons and organization don’t exactly go hand in hand).
I’m loving my lemon ice cubes, but I’m also always up for ANY additional flavor that I can add to my daily 8 glasses of water. So, I’ve been experimenting with some other ice cube options.
There’s two ways to make flavored ice cubes: purée or ‘stuffed’:
Puréed fruit flavored ice cubes
If you’re looking for more of a flavor punch, purées are the way to go. I simply add my flavors in to a high-speed blender with a little water until I get a smooth consistency. Then pour the liquid in to the ice cube trays to freeze.
‘Stuffed’ fruit flavored ice cubes
This method is simply placing the fruit and/or herbs into the ice cube tray and fill up with water. In order to get a stronger flavor, I like to stuff the cubes with as much fruit and herbs as I can before filling the rest with water.
The whole point of these ice cubes is to give your water some flavor, pack in the fruit!

- High speed blender (I like to use our Magic Bullet)
- I’m a big fan of these silicone ice cube trays as they’re small enough to fit in the very few open spaces of my packed-to-the-brim freezer. Plus, it’s super easy to pop a cube out.
- Cutting board
There’s really endless possibilities of flavored ice cube combinations. I’d say that it’s really based on personal preference, so here’s my favorites:
- Strawberry basil purée
- Very berry stuffed
- Stuffed cucumber mint
- Mango purée & orange slices
