Pine-lime mint ice blocks -/- Lemonade ice blocks

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.

Instructions
  1. Stir juices and sugar in medium jug until sugar dissolves. Stir in mint. Stand mixture for 20 minutes to allow mint to infuse. Strain mixture, discarding mint.
  2. Pour mixture into six ¼ cup (60ml) ice-block moulds. Top with a slice of lime (if using). Insert sticks. Freeze overnight until firm.
Recipe Notes

TIP: You can leave the mint in the pineapple mixture for extra flavour and texture. It will float to the base of the ice block moulds and form a minty layer. You can add some finely grated lime rind for added lime flavour.
