We have a lemon tree that is pretty prolific, so I squeeze the juice and freeze it in ice trays. I keep the "lemon cubes" in a zippered freezer bag, and use them in my water bottle as well as in recipes.
You can do the same thing with any citrus fruit. Try it with coffee or tea, too -- you can ice your drink without diluting it!

Buy fresh berries when they go on sale even if you donít need anymore. Wash them, drain water let them sit in the colander for about 30 minutes to remove excess water. Then freeze them by placing them on a cookie sheet, where they barely touch and freezing in freezer until frozen enough where when placed in a freezer bag they want stick to each other. With strawberries, be sure to cut the stem and leaves off before freezing. No need to buy expensive frozen fruits.
