I officially have 5 weeks until baby #2 is due and I am beyond ready. I try my best to limit my caffeine to one cup of coffee in the morning so I was looking for something refreshing and quick to make after a long day at school today. I created a Strawberry Lemon Herbal Tea Slushie using a K cup for my brand, spanking new Keurig OfficePro Single Cup Commercial Coffee Brewer from Staples. The best part?! The Keurig was dropped off to my doorstep for free so that I could review it. Say what?!
Did you know that Staples carries all types of Keurigs and K Cups? We are definitely partial to the Donut Shop roast for the morning. I love the ease of the setting. You simply turn the power on let the water heat up for about a minute, pop in your choice of specialty K Cup and hit brew. I especially love that I can adjust the cup size settings for 6 oz, 8 oz or 10 oz. My travel mug is definitely a 10 oz cup of coffee to get me going in the morning. I’m able to grab my coffee and get out the door with Riley by 7 am to drop her off at daycare so that I can be at school by 7:20.
I also loved the sleek design of the machine and the fact that it matched the rest of our stainless steel appliances perfectly. When I originally thought of a Keurig machine, I just thought coffee machine. It is so much more! There are so many varieties of K Cups from specialty coffees to tea to hot chocolate that the possibilities are endless. After a long day of school today and a very sore pregnant lady from being on my feet the majority of the day, I needed a little pick me up. I definitely already had my fill of caffeine today so I pulled out the Celestial Decaffeinated Sleepytime Herbal Tea K cup and set the Keurig for a 6 oz cup.
With the warm weather right around the corner this Strawberry Lemon Herbal Tea Slushie, which was definitely inspired by my Strawberry Lemon Spring Cupcakes, is likely to become a regular drink for me. I made sure to chill the herbal tea and let it come to room temperature and then I poured it into my blender and added ice, frozen strawberries and lemon juice.
- Celestial Decaffeinated Sleepytime Herbal Tea K Cup

I was compensated for my review of the Keurig from Staples, but the opinions are mine.Strawberry Lemon Herbal Tea Slushie: A Keurig Review by Jenny Melrose
