#BrewOverIce: A Summertime Twist on my Keurig

My Keurig might just be my most used kitchen appliance next to the microwave. I am a big fan of iced coffee and ALL coffee (hello, with two children, I almost have to be!) but I LOVE using it in the summer as well! I shared my favorite Iced Coffee recipe awhile back, and today I want to share with you TWO new ways to use your Keurig this summer!


I needed to stock up on some summertime K cups to have on hand, so we headed to WalMart. I was really impressed that there is a K cup display/end cap RIGHT next to the coffeepots in the home/kitchen department. There was also another display with a video playing on an end cap near the chip/pop aisle.


I grabbed the Snapple Peach Iced Tea and the Vitamin Burst Acai Berry to try– then set out to look for some plastic cups or tumblers. (When you Brew Over Ice, it is important to use a plastic glass and use the 6oz or 8oz setting.) WalMart had a fun selection, and I let the kids help me pick a few out.

Once we got home, I couldn’t wait to try these #BrewOverIce flavors, so I got to work filling my tumblers with ice. I decided to brew the Snapple Peach Iced Tea and the Vitamin Burst Acai Berry Brew and add in blueberries for a fun summertime drink. It would be fun to add any other frozen fruit as well!






I love that my Keurig gives me SO many options, especially this time of year when I like to change things up.

I love having the versatility of my Keurig, especially when we have people over! It’s fun to have a selection out on the counter and see what my friends or family choose. Are you inspired to #BrewitUp over ice with your own Keurig? Share your favorite combinations with me! I would love to hear them!


Love Your Ordinary

There is nothing extraordinary about me, my day to day routine, or my life. I am just an ordinary midwestern girl who married her high school sweetheart, and now I stay home with our two kids. Ordinary. I remember days when I had newborns and how I would feel as if I got nothing accomplished….
