Try These Cool New Ways To Use An Ice Cube Tray
If you thought that the humble ice cube tray was only good for making, well, ice cubes, you’re in for a big surprise. It can be used for so much more. Check out these cool ideas for using an ice cube tray in ways you’ve never thought possible.
Fresh Life For Herbs
We’ve all bought bundles of fresh herbs for a recipe only to end up with half of them lingering in the refrigerator until they turn into something resembling a science experiment. Save those expensive herbs by packing them into an ice cube tray, then pouring olive oil over them and freezing.
Chocolate Milk 2.0
Add these decadent chocolate ice cubes to your iced coffee, make delicious chocolate milk, or even add them to a glass of Baileys for an after-dinner drink. To make, you’ll need 7 oz milk, 2 oz water, 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 Tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon instant coffee (optional), and 3 oz dark chocolate, chopped fine. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a saucepan & bring to a gentle boil, then remove from heat and pour over the chocolate, stirring until the chocolate is melted and everything is nice and smooth. Freeze and enjoy!
Perfecting Iced Coffee
Keep your iced coffee nice and strong by freezing coffee ice cubes to add to your coffee drinks. Try freezing different flavored coffees for an extra little surprise as the ice melts. It’s better to let your coffee cool before pouring it into your trays and placing them in the freezer.
Looking for a fancy-pants way to dress up your drinks for your next party? Try freezing some flowers into ice cubes. It’s very important to be sure that you only use edible flowers that have not been treated with pesticides. Some varieties to try include bee balm, calendula, wild bergamot, pansies, and violets.
Have you ever been left with that odd half bottle of wine you don’t know what to do with? Yeah, us neither, but we’ve heard some people do occasionally have that trouble. Try freezing any of your leftover wine in ice cube trays to use later for cooking.
