Fruit Juice and ice cubes

As we are having some hot weather at the moment I wanted to do some fruit ice cubes for Rocky, like an ice lollipop something that is cool for him to munch on (no pun intended).

I am thinking fruit juice ice cubes and then also some pureed fruits with bits in.

However what fruit juice is suitable for them? What we currently have states no added sugar and it is what you dilute in water, I can of course buy some actual fruit juice on my weekly shop tomorrow.

So any recommendations? Bear in mind if specific brands I am in the UK.

Has anyone here done ice cube treats for their birds?

I literally just blend and freeze stuff. I can imagine that the innocent smoothies and juices may be good though

Maxx just loves plain ice cubes, he spends tons of time with them until there is nothing left.

Kennedy - if you use almond milk, use the unsweetened
