Cheers and happy spring my friends!

Are you loving this time of year? I am, and as it turns warmer I start thinking about all of the activities that I can start doing outside to enjoy this weather. Like those spring walks outside or riding bikes with my daughter. Or perhaps you are like me right now, where the warmer temperatures make you focus harder on taking better care of yourself. That's where I am right now. In a place where I strive to do better with what I put in my body. Where I am taking the time to educate myself and to discover what options are better for me. About a year or so ago, I made a decision to really focus on what I put IN my body in regards to what I was eating and drinking on a daily basis. I would not call it a 'diet' as I hate that word but I definitely decided I would be more aware and more intentional on choosing things that were real and not filled with a lot of fillers or what I call just plain 'ol junk'. I found that it wasn't so hard, it just took educating myself on what certain things were and reading labels. Now I get so excited when I find a product I LOVE, tastes great and has an amazing flavor that makes me want to buy it again and again.


On a recent trip to Kroger, as I was perusing the organic section of the store for something different to drink throughout the day, along with all of my water, as I like to have 'options', I found these Honest® Tea brand bottled teas and decided to try a few. I love the fact that they are organic, have a ton of flavor, are just a tad bit of sweet and brewed with real tea leaves, just like I'd make at home! That's a win-win for me! ;)

I have really enjoyed trying the selection of different flavors they have available because I have like all of them so far - especially since they do not add sugar in their product, then last week I spotted a new flavor: Unsweet Peach Ginger Tea, so I decided to pick some up and make a fun refreshing drink to share with you today! I love creating different sips to try every now and again especially ones that are made with something I already love, so this was an easy task!

So let's get to making this cup of deliciousness: Peach Ginger Iced Latte


1. The first thing I did before I created this drink, was to make some ice cubes out of the tea plus I added a little 'eye candy' to them to make them pretty. The reason I like to make ice cubes out of the tea is so that my drink does NOT get watered down as they melt.

Simply fill a fun shaped ice cube tray with your tea and then add a little part of a mint leaf. Freeze until ready to have your 'peach ginger iced latte'.

2.
Gather your ingredients to make this delicious drink. You will need:

- 3/4 cup of Unsweet Peach Ginger Honest® Tea
- 1/3 cup of coconut milk
- 1/2 tbsp. of raw honey
- 1/4 cup of fresh sliced peaches
- a mint leaf (for garnish)

3. Simply combine all of your ingredients together and mix thoroughly and pour over your pre-made 'tea ice cubes' to enjoy this fabulous sip! But be warned . . . it just may end of being your new fave! ;)

Like I mentioned above, I grabbed all of the items I needed on my weekly trip to Kroger and I don't know about you but I love supporting a brand that is all about Fair Trade and promoting sustainability as it is so important to me to support brands that do their part in the world we live in. Plus Earth Day is just around the corner and this drink is such a better option for you to enjoy on that day (or ANY day) to celebrate, as it is so light and refreshing!

The next time you make a stop at Kroger why not pick up a few flavors to try as there's nothing better than taking a sip of a drink and knowing right away you’re drinking something, real, honest and pure. Just use your digital coupon offer of 25 cents off 1 bottle and use it up to 5 times in one transaction at Kroger and all Kroger divisions. The coupon will be live 4/9 and ends 4/22.
