Great uses! Here's a couple that I do. Freeze individual ice cubes with a mint leaf in each; looks so nice floating in the top of your iced tea or whatever.
When I make pesto I freeze some in the ice cube tray because sometimes you just need a little dab of it to top a dish or to mix in a sauce or something, and when they're frozen, just pop them out and store in a freezer bag. They keep really well.
