Cucumber ice cubes are the perfect summer refreshment. I grew some cucumbers in my garden this year and the plant took off like wildfire. I had so many cucumbers and ran out of pickle jars. I started making cucumber aguas frescas which were so refreshing. I had some extra and decided to make some popsicles and ice cubes. The ice cubes turned out to be great. They made water more refreshing and added a great nuance of flavor to vodka cranberry cocktails. Cucumber ice cubes and popsicles are easy to make with the recipe below.
Cucumber Ice Cubes
- Ice Cube Tray
- 1 Large Cucumber
- 2-3 Cups Water
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- Pinch Salt
- Peel and roughly chop a large cucumber into one inch pieces. It doesn't matter how they look, because they're going into the blender.
- Add cucumber, sugar, salt to blender. Fill blender with water until cucumbers are submerged. Blend until smooth.
- Pour into ice cube trays and freeze. If you have popsicle molds, these are also a great summer treat for kids.
- Serve with water or your favorite cocktail. These cucumber ice cubes are great for tequila drinks, mojitos and vodka cranberry cocktails.
