Infants, children and older folks. Dehydration in the elderly is quite common.  If you have a senior loved-one who has a tendency of getting dehydrated, you might find this article of interest.

I have several ice cube trays (that I purchased at Target) that I fill by pouring my favorite juices through this funnel (also purchased at Target).  I use the funnel because of less spillage and less mess.

After the cubes are frozen – I store them in freezer bags in the freezer.  It’s nice to keep an assortment of flavors in the freezer to switch things up.

You can make your flavored ice cubes with cranberry juice (my personal favorite), pineapple juice (second favorite), orange-carrot juice, healthy lemonade, pink lemonade, grape juice, and my favorite beet, apple, ginger and parsley juice blend.  Sometimes when I buy myself a juice blend at my favorite health food store, I’ll buy an extra to freeze into ice cubes.  I also love to make green tea ice cubes!  Have fun creating your own personal favorite healthy cubes to add to your water.

Besides transforming water into something delicious, try adding a few of these juice cubes in a blender and make crushed ice for a frozen snack for your kiddos.  They’ll love it during the summer months!!  I did when I was a kid!!
