Our mint plant is going crazy and we have more mint that we know what to do with. We have been freezing mint to use throughout the year. (Check out our How to Freeze Mint post for all the details). When a friend recently gave us a pile of limes, we made some lime and mint ice cubes so we could preserve the two together. Lime and mint are such a great combination. They are perfect to pop into a glass or jug of chilled water for a refreshing flavour boost. They are great to have on hand for Thai salad dressing or other recipes that calls for lime juice.
Lime and Mint Ice Cubes are so simple to make. Simply fill an ice cube tray with freshly squeezed lime juice and top with a couple of washed mint leaves. Pop them in the freezer and you will have lime and mint ice cubes in a couple of hours. Store the frozen cubes in a a ziploc bag so they stay fresh in your freezer for longer. If you would like a more intense lime flavouring, you could add some finely grated lime zest to the juice.
