1. Puree fresh strawberries with a small amount of water.

2. Once you have a thick, but pourable strawberry blend, fill one ice cube tray.

3. Finely chop your basil. Take a moment to enjoy the fragrance.

4. Fill the second ice cube tray halfway with water. Freeze for 20 minutes.

5. Top the second tray with basil and add water until it's full. Continue to freeze until frozen solid.

Use filtered water to make your ice cubes healthier and better-tasting. They will also be clearer, making the basil really stand out.
