- Ice Cubes with a Twist
The most obvious use for silicone ice cube trays is to create unique and interesting ice cubes. With custom silicone trays, you can create ice cubes in any shape or size you desire, from miniature dinosaurs to oversized diamonds. But why stop at just the shape? You can also add a little flavor and color to your ice cubes by using fruit juice, food coloring, or even edible flowers. These custom ice cubes are perfect for jazzing up a simple glass of water, adding a pop of color to a cocktail, or making a summer punch extra special.
- Frozen Coffee Cubes
Do you hate it when your iced coffee gets watered down by melting ice cubes? The solution is simple: make your own coffee ice cubes! Brew a strong pot of coffee, let it cool, and then pour it into your silicone ice cube trays. Freeze overnight, and then pop a few coffee cubes into your iced coffee to keep it cool without diluting the flavor.
- Mini Cheesecake Bites
Silicone ice cube trays are also great for making bite-sized desserts, like mini cheesecakes. Just press a graham cracker crust into the bottom of each cube, fill with your favorite cheesecake batter, and then freeze until firm. When you’re ready to serve, pop them out of the tray and drizzle with chocolate or fruit sauce.
- Herb and Oil Infused Cubes
If you love to cook with fresh herbs, you know how quickly they can wilt and go bad in the fridge. But with silicone ice cube trays, you can preserve your herbs for weeks! Simply chop up your herbs, mix them with a little olive oil or butter, and then freeze in the tray. When you’re ready to use them in a recipe, just pop out a cube or two and add it to your dish.
- Homemade Gummy Candies
Kids (and adults) love gummy candies, and with silicone ice cube trays, you can make your own at home! Just mix together gelatin, fruit juice, and a little sweetener, and then pour the mixture into your tray. Let it set in the fridge for a few hours, and then pop out your homemade gummies.
- DIY Bath Bombs
Silicone ice cube trays can also be used to make homemade bath bombs. Mix together baking soda, citric acid, epsom salt, and a few drops of essential oil, and then press the mixture into the tray. Let it dry overnight, and then pop out your bath bombs. Drop one into your bath for a relaxing and rejuvenating soak.
- Frozen Fruit Cubes
Do you love to make smoothies, but hate having to chop up fruit every time? Make it easier on yourself by freezing your fruit ahead of time in your silicone ice cube trays. Simply chop up your favorite fruits, like berries, peaches, or mangoes, and then freeze in the tray. When you’re ready to make a smoothie, just pop out a few cubes and blend them up with some yogurt or milk.
- Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Chocolate covered strawberries are a classic dessert, but they can be messy and difficult to make. With silicone ice cube trays, you can make them with ease! Melt some chocolate in a double boiler, and then pour it into your tray. Add a strawberry to each cube, and then freeze until firm. When you’re ready to serve
- Homemade Energy Bars
If you’re looking for a healthy and convenient snack on-the-go, try making your own energy bars using silicone ice cube trays.
