It is too hot for us to be mildly pleasant about anything at all these days. No matter how many times you shower, you feel the same way. Public transport is totally out of the question and you can not wait for Iftari after mid day. How about you try these ice tray hacks to bring some variety in your lives!

1. Coffee Ice Cubes: If you’ve ever taken more than twenty minutes to finish your iced coffee, you understand the struggle of melted ice and watered down coffee. Behold, the coffee ice cube: an ingenious way to keep your coffee cool and strong till the very last sip. Just pour some leftover coffee into an ice tray, pop it in the freezer, and let it chill for 3-4 hours.

2. Fruit Juice Cubes: If you love fruit, summer is the time to take advantage. Freeze your juice of choice and add a slice of your fave fruit – then add the cubes to a glass of seltzer, water or fruity cocktail. Yum.

3. Milk and Cookie Cubes: On their own, cookies rock. Add a tall glass of milk and they’re invincible. But combine the two into a frozen cube of glory and you’ve created a refreshing, easy-to-use ice cube perfect for your afternoon iced coffee. All you need is milk, Oreos and an ice cube tray.

4. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cubes: It’s like strawberries dipped in chocolate fondue, but cooler (no pun intended). Eat them straight up, in hot chocolate, coffee, or a glass of milk.

5. Chocolate Cubes: Fact: chocolate makes everything better. Almond milk, coconut milk, regular milk – tbh you could even add it to your chocolate milk and we’d be cool with it. Step 1: melt the chocolate. Step 2: freeze the chocolate. Step 3: eat the chocolate in your drink.

6. Mint-Infused Ice Cubes: The next time you go to refill your ice tray, place a mint leaf in each cube and watch as your plain old ice turns into a bourgeoisie herb-infused delicacy. How posh of you.
