Making iced coffee and tea at home is one of the ways we keep our expenses under control.   I found myself running out to our local coffee shop much too often when the urge for an iced coffee or iced tea hit me. At $4 or more for each iced drink, my little splurge started to be a big splurge.   I knew that I had to start making iced coffee and tea at home instead.  I make my own hot coffee and tea in my Cuisinart powered by Keurig technology. When I started seeing the Brew Over Ice K-Cups, I knew that my problem had been solved.

Making Iced Coffee and Tea at Home

Making iced coffee and tea at home with Keurig couldn’t be easier.   I start with a re-usable tumbler and fill it to the top with iced cubes. Next comes the hard part.  Pick the type of k-cup you want to enjoy. There are so many different kinds of Brew Over Ice K-Cups that I have a difficult time choosing which one I want.  In the past, my favorite has been the Celestial Seasonings Peach Iced Tea K-Cups.  I’m a huge fan of fruit iced teas and peach is one of my favorites.  When I was at BlogHer Food in June, I had a chance to try the Snapple Peach Iced Tea K-Cup and WOW was that good!  Of course, an iced coffee mid afternoon is extremely important if I want to stay awake all day.

I recently received two new types of K-Cups to enjoy:

  • Vitamin Burst Strawberry Pomegranate – A brewed fruit beverage that is a combination of strawberry and pomegranate. It is high in antioxidant Vitamin C and is naturally sweetened with no artificial colors or flavors.  It is also caffeine free so it’s the perfect choice to enjoy later in the day. The Vitamin Burst Strawberry Pomegranate has a very natural strawberry taste and at 80 calories, it is a very refreshing way to enjoy something different.

  • Donut Shop Sweet & Creamy Regular Iced Coffee – This is the perfect blend for an iced coffee.  It is already sweetened and has creamer added.  Since sweet and creamy describes my ideal iced coffee, it’s no wonder I enjoyed this.  I did note that it has both sugar and sucralose.  I think that I would enjoy this one better if it were only sweetened with sugar.  I try to avoid artificial sweeteners when possible.

If you’re interested in making iced coffee and tea at home, the Keurig definitely makes it easier.  The range of iced coffees, iced teas, and iced beverages available in their Brew Over Ice line is truly amazing. If you would like to try some of the Brew Over Ice products, you can download a $2 coupon and watch the Brew Over Ice video. Make sure you enter the Brew Over Ice Sweepstakes too.

  3. I learned you only use the 6-8 oz setting! I don't think that I use that when I make brewed over ice drinks. I will have to try it out next time.

  7. I learned they have a guarantee if you don't like the flavor you bought. We have had that happen and it seems like a waste when you can't exchange it in the store.
