Ice Cubes for health!

I always get bored of water but find that sodas are too sugary and don’t fit in with my diet.  Everything Fabulous has the perfect solution though: flavored ice cubes!  She tried it with strawberries but I think you could try this idea with blueberries, raspberries, peaches, everything!  I think this is a great idea to have with a lime wedge and soda.  If your feeling naughty add a splash of vodka 😉
