I don’t know about your family but when it comes to summer drinks it seems as though everyone in my home wants something different ~ “I want iced tea“, “I want lemonade”, “I like that fruit drink you make”, “Can you make that Half ‘n Half drink?”.  I love my family to pieces but they drive me a little bonkers.  If I make a big pitcher of one drink someone wants another and then I hear the, “I guess I’m not your favorite….it’s been months since you made what I like”.  Yes, my boys have me wrapped around their little fingers but there is no dang way I’m going to have 3 different drink pitchers in my refrigerator.  It’s far too small for that and I don’t have 3 pitchers {I could buy more but I choose not to….sort of my attempt at not spoiling them}.

Okay, so now we can get to the real story.  Thanks to Keurig K-Cups #BrewOverIce I don’t need to have any drink pitchers in my refrigerator.

I was on a food run to Walmart alone {how did that happen?} as part of this post for #CollectiveBias K-Cup Brew Over Ice Flavors #BrewOverIce #BrewItUp #shop I picked up a box of Acai Berry Vitamin Burst cups and another box of Celestial Half and Half Perfect Iced Tea with Lemonade.   I also bought some new plastic thermal cups just for these delicious brews.  I always buy more than what I go for when I’m at Walmart.

Now it was time to #BrewItUp.  I moved the Keurig to my sunroom for easy access to fresh cold drinks while we’re outside and brewed up a cup for each of the boys of the drinks THEY wanted…no fussing….just patiently waiting.

 When all the drinks were done they waited on the swing for a fire to start ~ NOT for them to start a fire but for ME to start a fire ~ I wasn’t born yesterday…I still hide the matches ;)

They had fun and really enjoyed their drinks.  I even brewed myself up a cup later on when I had some down time, i.e. Mom time!

These Brew Over Ice drinks make a great gift!  I’ll bet Dad would love a box of these all to himself for Father’s Day.  He could keep it in his man cave or if he’s like my husband there is no man cave so he could just keep his box hidden away in the bedroom for when he wants a cup all to himself. 

For those of us who recycle Keurig has it’s own recycling program just for K-Cups.  It’s called The Grounds to Grow program and offers a way for K-Cup users to return used cups that are then processed ~ the grounds are separated for compost and the plastic is reused.  You can learn all the details here.

 If you’re not sure how to make your own #BrewOverIce here’s a video to help get you started.

Have you tried the Keurig Brew Over Ice options yet?  We definitely enjoyed them and look forward to trying more of the available flavors.

  1. Perfect timing-my mini Keurig should be arriving any day. You can use any Keruig brewer right?

    • Hi Karen! I have a mini Keurig and that’s what I used. I just brewed it without the ice just as I would make coffee. Once the brew was complete I poured it over ice in a good quality plastic cup ~ since it is hot over cold you want to be sure to NOT use glass for this. If you have any more questions, just let me know.

      p.s. You’ll love your mini! We went away for a few days and I took it to the hotel with me even though there was a coffee maker in the room. I like the convenience of it so much more.

      Thanks so much for stopping by! hugs, mb

    That’s precisely why we love Keurig Brew Over Ice in our home, it’s simple enough for anyone to use, and you can always have exactly what you want to drink! #client

  3. Such a great point about everyone having a different favorite drink…Keurig to the rescue! And speaking of pitchers in the refrigerator, I just had to remove a big pitcher of tea from my fridge because I have absolutely no way to fit that and the groceries I just bought. It’s pretty wasteful because we aren’t drinking it fast enough…another way brewing by the cup would be much better. #client
