What makes a cool glass of water even better on a hot day?  Fruity ice cubes!  What could make your 4th of July even better?  Fruity 4th of July colored ice cubes!

Step 1: Supplies

I've made these specifically for the 4th of July and that is why I used the fruit I did. Please feel free to change it up however you want!


  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Lemons
  • Water
  • Ice Cube Tray
  • Hand Blender (or real blender, whatever works for you)
  • Freezer
  • Water Pitches or some kind of liquid holding containers
<p>This is a great idea, but some of the ice cubes look very unappetizing (the color). I'd have to experiment on this, as I don't want to spend the entire day explaining what is in some of them, or why they look brown. Very good instructions, though! :)</p>
Or take a mallet and smash the fruit and freeze
Thanks they were very good my it a success
Glad to hear it!
Great idea, I am going to try this. I know my wife will like it as well. Cool cubes! :)
Yay! I'd love to hear how they turn out :)
It&acute;s a pitty we can do it only today! :( <br>But it is wonderfully refreshing! :)
But you can do it any day! Change up the fruit and see what you can come up with! There is still a lot of summer left and this is perfect for any hot day :D
Read this instructable too late to make them for the 4th :( Still gonna do it, looks delicious!
Yeah, I came up with this idea very last minute :( but it's nice that you can do this whenever you want with whatever fruit you want! Great for summer all around!
Thanks! I just made it now i just wait to see if it messed up :).
Really! I'd love to see how it turns out :)
Yum - looks refreshing!
It is quite tasty :)
