8 Genius Ways to Use Ice Cube Trays

  1. If you are sick of watered down iced coffee, try making coffee ice cubes. Pour the pot of coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze and there you will have delicious frozen cubes.
  2. For your child or grandchild, freeze applesauce in the trays for a yummy frozen and healthy snack. This is also good for when they are teething.
  3. Freeze pasta sauce. Instead of freezing a whole jar, put the sauce in ice cube trays so it takes less time to thaw in the microwave.
  4. No longer worry about wasting half of the buttermilk again. Freeze the milk, so it can be easily accessed when you need it.
  5. Make hot chocolate on a stick. It is a small, yet delicious treat.
  6. Freeze healthy blended greens to add to your future greens.
  7. Freeze bananas with Greek yogurt to throw into a smoothie so it does not get watered down. An added bonus is you can eat it by itself too!
  8. Freshen up your garbage disposal up by freezing lemons and vinegar. Whenever your sink seems to smell, pop one in the garbage disposal and turn it on. This method is cost friendly and easy.

These end of summer treats will surely have your mouth watering.

We all know how hot and humid Florida summers can be, especially in August. Brevard Medical understands that sometimes it’s not even fun to hit the beach because the sand tends to burn your feet. We love the summer and because it is coming to an end, Brevard Medical would like to give you some cool end of summer treats to make. There are two things we love: delicious treats and beautiful Florida weather, so now is the perfect time to share our favorite recipes with you.

Cool End of Summer Treats:

Strawberry Cheesecake Salad


  • 12 oz. whipped topping
  • 1 small package of cheesecake pudding (just the powder, don’t add the milk)
  • 3 (6 oz.) strawberry yogurts (Yoplait)
  • 1 lb. fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 3 bananas, sliced (add just before serving or they brown)
  • miniature marshmallows (add just before serving)

Directions: Thaw whipped topping and in a large salad bowl stir together whipped topping, yogurts, and pudding powder. Let this set up in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. Wash and slice strawberries. You can add strawberries to salad or wait to add them with sliced bananas and marshmallows just before serving. Keep refrigerated.

Frozen S’mores


  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
  • 14 or so graham crackers
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened on microwave’s defrost setting for 30 seconds
  • 1 pint chocolate ice cream, softened on microwave’s defrost setting for 30 seconds
  • 12 large marshmallows

Directions: Microwave cream and chocolate in a 1-quart glass measuring cup on high power until very hot, about 2 minutes. Whisk until chocolate melts into a smooth sauce. Line an 8-inch square metal pan with plastic wrap, leaving an overhang. Arrange 1/3 of the graham crackers over bottom, cutting the final few with a knife to fit. Drizzle 1/3 of the sauce over the crackers; spread evenly. Freeze until chocolate is just set, 5 to 10 minutes. Spread vanilla ice cream over the chocolate. Top with another cracker layer as before. Drizzle another 1/3 of the sauce over the crackers; spread evenly. Freeze until just set, 5 to 10 minutes. Spread chocolate ice cream over the crackers. Arrange a final layer of crackers over the ice cream. Spread remaining sauce over crackers. Freeze until set, about 2 hours, or double-wrap in plastic and freeze up to 5 days. To serve, lift dessert from pan; discard plastic wrap. Halve the dessert; cut each half into 6 slices. Return to freezer briefly. Toast marshmallows over a flame and serve alongside s’mores.

Now that your mouth is watering, go ahead and make these delicious treats! You can also stay cool this summer with our products.
