Summer is here!
I have two young kids and summer means the freezer is full of ice blocks for that 3pm refreshment. The fresh lemonade ice blocks are always a hit and the pine-lime are a great tropical treat. You can easily amend these recipes to make simple variations. Try reducing the pineapple juice and adding some coconut milk, or omit the mint and add a few dashes of bitters. So simple – Hope you enjoy!
Try the mixture before freezing as the sweetness level may need to be adjusted depending on the sweetness of the fruit or juice you use.
