Keurig-Recipes- VitaminBursts-Strawberry-SummerDrinks-BrewOverIce- IcedTea- Best-K-Cup-Flavors
The morning is my usually busy- a combination of waking up late- a la hitting the snooze button too many times, rushing to grab everything I need before rushing out the door frantically, and heading over to my local Starbucks for a morning pick me up. Lately it has been a combination of either a Shaken Iced Tea or a Very Berry Refresher. Something about the Shaken Iced Tea or light, refreshing fruity morning drink just seems to hit the spot- that is until now. This summer I have literally been introduced to something that is replacing that morning stop at the Starbucks-and saving me tons and I mean tons of money, all while giving me extra time to no longer frantically run out of the house in the morning. I have had a Keurig for quite some time now, but I will admit I have been a bit lax when using it- until now. It is time to introduce you to a bit of amazingness in the form of a Keurig Vitamin Burst K-Cups: #BrewItUp Summer Drinks Style

Summer mornings are long, and super slow- although the nights and weekends tend to fly by- go figure. After a recent stop at my Walmart, I ran across a display on a endcap full of Keurig K-Cups- something about the #BrewOverIce caught my eye. I have never tried the Brew Over Ice products before, so when I saw a huge- and I mean HUGE variety at Walmart. I knew I needed to check it out ASAP. Thanks to #CollectiveBias and Walmart I was given the chance to check out these babies. I decided on grabbing Keurig Vitamin Burst K-Cup in Strawberry Pomegranate and after seeing the HUGE selection I also grabbed Keurig K-Cup in Snapple Peach Iced Tea. I used to drink Snapple Iced Tea for ages, but after endless times of switching between Diet Coke and Iced Tea, I sort of forgot about it. Boy oh boy am I glad I grabbed it- one word- BOMB!

#BrewOverIce Walmart Shot

Anxiously I hurried home to try out these wonderful new Keurig K-Cups, and let me just say I am sooooooo IMPRESSED. I grabbed a plastic cup -**because anytime you are brewing something hot and over ice- plastic is the safest way to go. Do NOT use glass**; I filled the plastic cup with ice, set my Keurig to the smallest 6 oz. setting to get the optimal flavor {although you can also select the medium 8 oz. setting for a great brewed flavor}, and hit hit brew. 1,2,3-easy! {You can find a video of how to successfully #BrewOverIce- here} OMG the scent of the Keurig Vitamin Burst K-Cup in Strawberry Pomegranate literally filled my house with the aroma of a sweet, summer afternoon. It was absolutely AH-MAZING! After trying the Keurig Vitamin Burst K-Cup in Strawberry Pomegranate I thought about how wonderful these would be mixed with fruit and frozen into fun Summertime ice cubes- genius, right? Check below for how to make your own.

So with that thought in mind, I also thought about how wonderful the Keurig Vitamin Burst K-Cup in Strawberry Pomegranate would taste mixed with my new Keurig K-CupSnapple Peach Tea. So with that thought in mind I grabbed a plastic cup and got my #BrewItUp on, and holy WOW! The flavor was unreal and simply amazingness in a cup. Here is a printable recipe for you to make your own.

K-Cups-Keurig-Best-Iced-Tea-IceTea-DrinkLet’s just say- I will NO longer be running out of the house to run to the local Starbucks in the morning, I will be starting my day off with some amazingness via Keurig Vitamin Burst K-Cups and Keurig K-Cups in Snapple Peach Tea.I cant wait to head back to Walmart to grab the other Vitamin Burst K-Cup flavor in Acai Berry. Looks like I am Summertime ready with convenient, simple and easy drinks with the help of Keurig, I can honestly say- I’ll drink to that!!

#BrewItUp-On-The-Go-Iced-Tea-Keurig-Brewed-Over-Ice-K-Cup

** Did you know that Keurig has it’s own recycling program for use with the K-Cups? The Grounds to Grow program offers a way for K-Cup users to return used cups for processing that separates grounds for compost and plastics for re-use. Learn more about this program here! Totally genius right?

Have you tried any of the #BrewOverIce Keurig K-Cups? If so what is your favorite flavor? I’d love to hear…

      Thanks girl. I am obsessed with them now. A great fast way to add some pizzazz to water. lol…

  • scentednights2002

    I love my Keurig & use it all the time for iced coffee in the summer. That looks really good too.

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      I love my Keurig so much more now that I know it can do a ton more. I was trying to kick back on coffee and totally just stopped using the Keurig completely. So happy I found these though. Its getting used a TON now. lol…

  • http://tanejasbride.com Shipra Taneja

    Ooh, this sounds refreshing!! I may have to try this soon! :)

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      It is sooooo yummy. I am thinking it is my version of a Starbucks Very Berry refresher just $5 saved now in my pocket. lol

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    YUM!!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Yes!!!! I added a bit of peach vodka to it once- OMG I am OBSESSED. Or even a bit of Malibu Coconut Rum with it- now I want a drink. Come on over!!! lol :)

  • http://downandoutinsephora.blogspot.com/ Lydia

    What a great idea! I have a Keurig from college and never use it for anything other than hot coffee. This is brilliant!

    http://downandoutinsephora.blogspot.com/

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      I totally did the same thing. Stopped using it cause I was trying to not drink so much hot coffee. Now that I know they have the #BrewOverIce K-cups, I am obsessed with my Keurig again. lol

  • http://www.darlingprepster.com/ Ashliegh

    Love the idea of turning the beverage into ice with fruit! Your peach iced tea looks so delicious!!

    http://www.darlingdailyblog.com

  • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

    That looks so yummy. I want it RIGHT NOW

  • http://www.oliveandivyblog.com/ Chelsea

    Yummy! I love the k-cups you brew over ice!

  • http://www.nski-beauty.com Ann Marie DelFavero

    We have the strawberry pomegranate k-cups at home. I love them as a yummy alternative to water!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Totally agree. I am in love with them. I want the Acai Berry ones now too. lol

  • http://www.beautyisles.com/ Beauty Isles

    I have a nespresso, but I am kinda of drawn to the tea option of the Keurig.

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Oooooh how do you like the nespresso? I totally was going to get one. But once I found out the Keurig can do way other things- I am back in love with it for sure.

      • http://www.beautyisles.com/ Beauty Isles

        I really like it as I am a coffe drinker at heart, and I prefer espresso to filtered coffee. But I think they’ve since come out with a new one that also does regular coffee and maybe tea? The great thing about the Keurig though is the accessibility and variety I think.

  • Carly Anderson

    I totally want to make those ice cubes! I need to get brew over ice cups……I only use my keurig for coffee!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      I am obsessed with the Keurig now for other things than coffee. Although the iced coffee K-cups are BOMB.. Yum yum!!!

  • Norah Salazar

    Summer is ICEA TEA time and those drinks look delish!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Agreed. Summer is totally Iced Tea time. Refreshing, light and yummy. And even tastes great with some adult beverages in it at times too. lol :)

  • http://www.beautybymissl.com/ beautybymissl

    This looks very delicious!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Super delicious. I am sad I totally didnt know about them earlier. lol… Now I am totally addicted.

  • http://www.glamour-zine.com Glamour-Zine

    LOVE the ice cube idea, need to make ice cubes like that now!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      ha ha ha… Love that you love it. They are so good. Even just fruit in water cubes helps especially if you hate drinking water or need some sort of flavor to drink a ton.

  • http://www.manifestdestany.com/ Destany

    Like the ice cube tray idea – I don’t own a Keurig.

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      The ice cube idea is such a good thing. I tried it with just water and fruit in the cubes for just drinking normal water. Love it as well. I want to try and do like lemonade cubes so its like lemon water. lol..

  • http://beautylitfromwithin.blogspot.com Nidia Doherty

    This post has so much win. First, love the cute pix of you with your tea! Second, I love my Keurig and now I want to try these brew over ice recipes! Third, recycling? oh, yeah! I’m going to look into that.

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      awwww…. you are so sweet. I totally am obsessed with my Keurig too. And pumped about that recycling program. I never knew. I just tossed them away. Now I will so use them and save the world. :) xxo

  • Justina

    Ok that picture of you is adorable. And this looks amazing. Everyone’s all about mason jars today. I need to go replace my glassware with some lol

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      awwww. thanks girl. You are so sweet. I agree everyone is all about some Mason Jars. I never realized how handy they were until Pinterest projects. lol.. Now you can get them with handles, plastic form, in ike super sized form, everything. lol…

  • http://www.southeastbymidwest.com/ Cassie Tucker

    We love using K-cups in our house. How smart are you using infused ice cubes as the brew over ice part, genius!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      ha ha ah.. Thanks girl :) I love love love some K-cups. I am shocked by all the flavors too. wow!!

    Okay, so I don’t have a Keurig but I totally want one now. This looks delicious!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      ha ha ha.. You are so funny. I will say though you would love it. You can do anything hot, now anything cold, as well as use it for practical things like hot water for oatmeal, cup of noddles, anything. Such a little multi-tasker for sure.

  • http://www.slashedbeauty.com/ Miranda Mendoza

    LOL the last pic is so cute. I want to get summer drinks for my keurig at work!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

  • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

    I NEED to try this! OMG AMAZING!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      ha ha ha.. Yes you will love it. Totally helps liven up basic water or sparkling water. Or you can always toss flavored cubes into a adult beverage. lol… so AMAZING!! xxo

  • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

    I will admit now that I know Keurig can do Iced Tea and Iced Coffee I am a even bigger fan of it. I love that it does hot chocolate, coffee, etc.. And you can always use the hot water to do hot water in like oatmeal and things. Totally a multi-tasker :)

  • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

    Love it!!! Anytime girl! They are also amazing in adult beverages with a bit of vodka or flavored rum. Perfect tropical drink for a girl in paradise.
