10 Genius Ways To Use The Ice Cube Tray


10 ways to use an ice cube tray for weightloss

An ice-cube tray isn’t just for water ice cubes it can actually be an effective tool to help you drop some pounds.  Here is how:

1. Fruits

Puree strawberries or pineapple or mango and free.  Pop out a cube or three and stir into plain yoghurt to make your very own flavoured yoghurt.  You can also add to oatmeal instead of brown sugar.

Freshly squeezed juice from organges, lemons to add to water or seltzer. Less calories than a full glass of juice or soda.

Home baked cookies are irresistable and if you ask me almost impossible to just eat one.  Next time bake half and scoop the rest into an ice cube tray.  When your sweet tooth checks in, pop out a couple and bake to satisfy your craving.

No need to polish off that wine and end up drinking an extra 200 calories or more.  Freeze it and use frozen wine cubes in recipes later.
