Directions if you want to make layered ice cubes...

If you make layered ice cubes, you'll want to use coconut water because it will give you a little more white definition that plain water.

  1. Add the blueberries and 1 cup coconut water in a blender and blend well.
  2. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh.
  3. Rinse the blender and wipe dry.
  4. Add the raspberries and 1 cup coconut water in a blender and blend well.
  5. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh.
  6. Evenly distribute the blueberry mixture into 2 ice cube trays - about 2 teaspoons per each ice cube mold.
  7. Freeze for about 2 - 3 hours until solid.
  8. Remove from the freezer and spoon about 2 teaspoons plain coconut water into each ice cube mold.
  9. Freeze for about 2 - 3 hours until solid.
  10. Remove the trays from the freezer and spoon about 2 teaspoons of the raspberry mixture into each ice cube mold.
  11. Freeze for about 2 - 3 hours or until solid.

Notes

Straining the berry skins and seeds make these cubes melt more cleanly without the floating bits in your drink.  If you don't care about that - then you can just skip the straining step.
