After reviewing LifeIce bite-sized flavored ice cubes I promised my readers that I would be able to offer a less expensive, home made alternative with just as much nutritional value as LifeIce. Chris and I experimented with items that we had in our freezer and pantry and came up with a delicious recipe that is guaranteed to please everyone in your family. This nutritious treat is a wonderful light snack for a hot day or to accompany your kids favorite after-school snack.
Directions: Microwave 1/2 c. of frozen carrots for 2 minutes, or until soft. Set aside. Put coconut water, apple juice, and agave syrup in blender. Add frozen fruit and carrots and blend until all is liquid. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze overnight. Enjoy!
