Beautiful Lemon Ice Cubes
Prep time
Total time
Beautiful ice cubes made from slices of fresh citrus fruit in a muffin tray.
Recipe type: Drinks
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tangerines
  1. Slice both ends off of each piece of fruit, then slice the fruit into 4-6 circles.
  2. Fill the cups of a couple muffin trays ¾ of the way with cold water.
  3. Place a citrus slice on top of the water in each cup, then use a glass to pour in additional water if needed.
  4. Place muffin trays in the freezer, and freeze overnight.
  5. Pop the cubes from the muffin trays (you can run the bottom of the trays under cool water if needed to loosen them) and place in a gallon sized plastic bag. Return bag to freezer.
Approximate cost/serving: Depends on whether citrus is in season or not. I find it usually costs me about $2-3 to make a batch.
Vegetarian/gluten free: Yes to both and vegan too.
