A couple of ways to use these heart milk ice cubes

These Valentine’s hearts milk ice cubes are a crazy easy way to make the morning special for those you love. Since Valentine’s Day usually falls on a weekday for us, I am always on the lookout for simple and easy ways to make it special while still getting everyone out the door on time.

Over the years, I’ve come to learn that even the simplest acts of celebrating a holiday have come to mean a big deal to the idea of traditions for my kids and my husband. It’s so worth it to take a moment and create something like these heart ice cubes that they will remember fondly years from now.

This Valentines milk ice cubes idea could also be used with red wine to add substance to Valentine’s dinner or soup. The trays could also be filled with chocolate for adding a sweet taste to any drink (I like the chocolate hearts best with pink lemonade). And you could harden whipped cream or frosting in the Valentines hearts to top Valentine’s cake in festive holiday style.

So get your heart tray out, and fill it to begin making festive Valentine traditions today.

  1. I wonder if you could make Strawberry Quick and freeze it in the ice cubes? Then it would be strawberry tasting as they melted.

    • Yes, Sharon you could totally use strawberry milk. I originally made these to put in coffee and thought it would be great to have them without taste, but in the milk that would be perfect!

  2. Such a cute idea! I shared it on my business fan page with a link back to you. I think it would be perfect for an after school Valentine’s snack!

  3. I’m planning on making a “milk and cookies” dessert for my boyfriend for V-Day, since we’re not big on holidays. I’ll be making Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles and Oreo Truffles, with a side of milk and cute pink ice cubes. It’ll be great!
