Cook with Us #31 - Trendy ice cubes with micro herbs

in cookwithus •  7 months ago  (edited)

So inspired by the entry made by @foodforsoul

We had some micro herbs in a salad the other day so I decided to try them out in my ice tray - the result was really lovely. Very excited to use them in a cocktail.

I discovered from @offoodandart that the red ones are called amaranth - have no idea what the others are

All ready for a cocktail or shooter

Loved the way the water started turning pink - it was so pretty!!

This opens up the door to experimenting with all sorts of fruits and vegetables and although Christmas is going to be cold for us - a few fancy ice cubes will still look good in the water.

Hope you enjoy!!

Thx @Pandamama x

Very cool idea! I just love how the micro greens color the water. Did they also flavor the water? Have fun with your new hobby!

Oh this looks so pretty @lesbento, love the colours! I've been playing with ice cubes on and off the whole weekend, still have to take final photos and post!

Really cool entry @lesbento! And by cool I also mean I love the sunnies in the background! The micro herbs work really well and it came out nicely in the cube and on the pics. Well done.

they look fantastic like the shapes and the natural colouring!

Thanks for this colorful entry! I love microgreens and have not used them in ice cubes. Great idea!
