I’m sharing my secret to drinking more water with these Easy Watermelon Coconut Fruit Ice Cubes. Slowly infuse your water with delicious and sweet fruit for the perfect summer drink idea!
April was my month. I’ve been working out regularly, eating better and ultimately losing weight. 5 pounds down, I’m feeling so much better about ME. I’ve been drinking a lot more water too. But here’s the thing, water is B-O-R-I-N-G. There’s only so much lemon or lime I can cram in there to get my daily ration. So that sparked my latest healthy recipe inspiration, fruit ice cubes. Today I’m sharing my secret to healthy weight loss with these delicious Watermelon Coconut Fruit Ice Cubes. Because I care about your drink boredom too. Light, naturally sweet and perfect for those summer drinks, your fruit infused water has been taken up a level.
It’s true, I have a thing for watermelon lately. After concocting this Copycat Disney Watermelon Slush (and tasting and tasting and tasting the results), watermelon and I understand each other. And with watermelon being full of water with a hint of sweetness, I knew I had the perfect base for fruit ice cubes.
Water, meet your new BFF. Getting my 6 to 8 cups of water everyday has been hard. I get sips in between toddler chases and school homework….but honestly drinking water has been at the bottom of my to-do list. Because it’s NOT fun or pretty or appealing. It’s just plain ole’ water.
But add a few lovely fruit infused ice cubes to my glass, and I’m now finding excuses to sit down for a drink. I mean, how FANCY is your glass when you have a few happy cubes floating in there? Right?! And with fruit infusion giving me extra vitamins, minerals and you know….filling me up so I don’t cry miserable hunger woes, I can stay on my track for a healthier me. Ready to make a batch or 14 of these delicious ice cubes? So easy!
