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?!

  • Meghan @ The Tasty Fork

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Keurig!!!!! We had a brewer which crapped out on us and our warranty had already expired but they sent us a new one anyway!

    • Jenny Melrose

      I love good companies that understand that as a consumer we want quality. Keurig definitely is that type of brand.

  • Megan @ The Pink Flour

    We love our Keurig too! I don’t care for coffee and I love how it can make teas, hot chocolate and even apple cider 🙂 And I love your recipe, especially how you turned it into a slushy – perfect summertime drink!

    • Jenny Melrose

      Thanks so much Megan. I totally forgot about the ciders, but will have to play with them a bit in the fall. There are just so many possibilities.

  • Rachel @ I Love My Disorganized Life

    Jenny I am loving this drink! Except I’m thinking I can make it ‘adult’ by adding a little somethin’ somethin’, ya know what I mean? I can do that, because I waaaay past that baby making stage! We have a Kueurig, too and just love it! Especially since Mark likes decaf and it’s leaded all the way for me, baby! Totally going to try this!

    • Jenny Melrose

      Thanks so much Rachel. I’ll definitely be looking to make it into an adult beverage shortly. 🙂

  • Wanda Ann @ Memories by the Mile

    I love slushie and smoothies. This one sounds delicious! Can’t wait to try it. Pinning it!
    Happy Spring and excited for you and baby #2.

  • Donna McMorrow

    We love the Keurig. What a great idea for a drink. I’ll have to give it a whirl!

  • Heather @ French Press

    LOVE my Keurig..and that slushy looks amazing! want one now

  • Abby

    I’m pinning every refreshing summer drink recipe I can find in preparation for the hot Mississippi summer that’s headed my way. Thanks for sharing!

  • Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

    This sounds delish Jenny!

  • Bethany K

    GREAT idea. Tea with fruit? It’s perfect. I’m also a teacher (high school), and I’m expecting my first in June! I’m glad you mentioned “one cup a day” because I hear all the time “Oh I hope that’s decaf!” Well, in fact is is not. But it’s okay!

    Anyway, I don’t have a Keurig, but I love Sleepytime. I’ll save the recipe for when we have a big enough kitchen to fit a Keurig!

    • Jenny Melrose

      I’m glad you liked the recipe. My one cup is always followed with more sugar later in the day as well. Normally in the form of sour patch kids. Lol! I can’t help it. Are you working all the way up until delivery? I’m not sure ill last much longer. I’m swelling like crazy which I didn’t do for my first. My best advice is to go out at least a week before your due date. You’ll want those last moments of me time. I hardly ever pee alone anymore. Lol! Good luck!

    • Karen

      Bethany, my doctor actually wanted me to stick with regular because of all of the chemicals that are used to extract the caffeine in decaf. In moderation you are fine. Otherwise Swiss Water Decaf is made with no chemicals!

  • Jenn

    Oh, now this looks delish! I am trying to cut back on my coffee – and own a Keurig – so this is definitely a recipe I can try!

  • Randi - Dukes and Duchesses

    That sounds so delicious, Jenny! I’ll definitely try it … and I’m sure my kids will love it too!

    • Jenny Melrose

      I was actually surprised how much Riley liked it.

  • A Lived in Home

    This looks so yummy and refreshing!! I would love for you to come link up to my party and follow along. http://alivedinhome.blogspot.com/2013/04/get-social-sunday.html
    Happy Monday!

  • Camille @ Growing Up Gabel

    Jenny, this looks so refreshing! I’d love it if you linked this recipe up to this week’s Iron Chef Mom: Strawberry Battle! http://growingupgabel.com/iron-chef-mom-strawberry-battle/

  • Natashalh

    I love slushies, strawberries, and herbal teas! I loved my Keurig, too, until male 6 male housemates at the time ruined it =( Moral of the story? Never live in a house full of guys, even if having so many people in one house makes the rent super affordable.

    • Jenny Melrose

      That’s not good. You’re probably fortunate it lasted as long as it did with 6 guys in house.

  • Heather

    I love my Keurig!! We are on our second one since we fried our first due to overconsumption of java!!! Haha! Great recipe Jenny!

  • Micki Weinrich Sellers

    I’m going to have to make this without the Keurig :o)

  • tessa

    Oooh, yum! That looks so delicious! Pinned.

    • Jenny Melrose

      Thanks so much Tessa. It’s definitely refreshing and healthy to boot!

  • chocolateandmore

    Jenny, this sounds so refreshing. Can’t wait to make one up on the next hot day!

    • Jenny Melrose

      Thanks so much Joan and for featuring it as well at your party. I love the new site design btw.

  • Becca @ Crumbs and Chaos

    Wow! This looks perfect for a hot day – or any day really!!

    • Jenny Melrose

      Thanks so much Becca! It was so simple too.

  • Tracie Scrumptious Keeling

    Is there a version of this recipe that is made by hand not machine? x

    • Jenny Melrose

      The tea could be any kind of tea and wouldn’t necessarily need to be made using a Keurig. It’s much faster, that’s for sure. You’d definitely need a blender though.

  • Heather Who Needs a Cape?

    Looks really good! Would love to see it at Super Sunday at Who Needs a Cape? http://whoneedsacape.com/2013/06/super-sunday-party-2/

    Saw you at The Country Cook!
