Try freezing juices into fun layered lollies. Pour your favourite juices into lolly moulds and freeze a layer at a time (adding fresh fruit if you like) to get a striped effect. Orange and forest fruits (with some sliced strawberries added in) create a colourful effect, but try your own combinations with as many layers as you like.
Make a chilled glass of juice even more refreshing by using juice for the ice cubes, too. You won’t dilute your drink with water as they melt and you could even try freezing different juices to make your own mixes, you could try pink grapefruit and pineapple for a tangy, tropical treat. Add fruit for an extra surprise.
If you’ve already got a tray of juice cubes sitting in the freezer, then a simple slushie is something you can easily whip up as well. Blitz the cubes in a powerful food processor or blender for a glass of fruity ice that’ll be the ultimate refreshment on a hot day. Make them even prettier by layering up different flavours in the same glass – all you need to do is choose whether to enjoy with a straw or spoon…
It’s one you should definitely be serving up this summer and will become a new party favourite. Tasting as tropical as it sounds, this pretty drink is a mix of spicy dark rum, Campari, zingy lime and plenty of pineapple juice. Mix up a batch and invite friends and family over.
Or how about leaving out the booze and making it child friendly. Served with mint leaves, ice and orange slices, try serving as a juice float with chopped pineapple and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Have a go and let me see the results 😉
