- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Step 2 Pour mixture carefully into ice cube trays.
Step 3 Put trays in freezer and freeze for about 3 hours or until solid.
Step 4 Remove ice cube trays from freezer

- This recipe makes about 2 or more trays, depending on the size of cubes within the tray.
- A tray with smaller cubes works great as littler cubes look nicer in a glass, but you can choose any size you like. Heart-shaped trays can usually be found fairly easily in dollar stores, etc.
- You can also experiment with other types of berries, like blueberries.
- The amount of sugar listed in this recipe yields a mixture that is quite sweet-- you may want to modify to suit your taste, especially if you will be adding cubes to an already sweet beverage like lemonade.
