Frozen Fruit Kabobs
You can just eat these right off the stick or use them to chill your beach cocktail. Either way it’ll add hella color to your day.
Frozen Kiwi Chips
It’s an original and very simple creation that I made up. Just slice your kiwis to a desired thickness, freeze them for about 2-3 hours and sprinkle some sugar if you please. Don’t forget to peel the skin as you eat your frozen treat!
Fruit Ice Cubes
Classics are classics for a reason. Fruit ice cubes make great additions to beach side cocktails but they are also great to pop into your mouth on those blistering hot days. Use your favorite fruits, herbs (lavender and mint are v great) or beverages to create a fun twist to the old favorite.
Icy Crystalized Cranberries
This is by far one of the most beautiful fruit treats to make. After you get your cranberries coated in sugar, put them in the freezer for at least 2 hours and it’ll be the perfect solution for sizzling hot days.
