Watermelon & Lime "Ice" Cubes

FACT: The most refreshing food you can consume on a hot summer day is watermelon.

Don't try to all know it's true!  Well, now that summer's almost over in England, I had a brilliant and refreshing idea.

Newsflash: Water does not have to be boring!  Everyone has had water with lemon or lime in it.  But, you can put all different kinds of fruit into water to make it all fancy, and extra refreshing! When Jim and I were at the spa on our honeymoon, they had a variety of waters to choose from with fresh lemon, lime, cucumber, apple/mint, pineapple, and watermelon! They were all ice cold, and so good! 

We don't always have a lot of room in our freezer for ice, so I decided to turn the watermelon itself into ice cubes.  Also, this way it will last longer than if I just cut it into cubes and stuck it in the fridge.

What you'll need:
1/4 seedless watermelon (cut into cubes)
Juice of 1/4-1/2 lime
1/4 cup water
1)Add all the ingredients to a blender, and blend on high until liquefied.
2) Pour liquid into ice cube trays and freeze.
3)Fill up a glass about half way with the watermelon/lime cubes, and then the rest of the way with normal ice cubes.  
4)Fill the glass with water for the perfect, refreshing drink.
Tip: You could also freeze these into popsicles, because they taste amazing on their own!
What's your favourite way to dress up water?  Are you a classic "ice and lemon" or do you take a more adventurous approach to getting your 8 glasses a day? 
P.S. Hope you enjoyed today's quick, delicious tip!  We are still busy, busy working on the master bedroom around here!
