Berry-Lime Popsicles for the 4th

It’s hot, way hot. I’m talking 97 degrees hot. I don’t do well with heat, it makes me crabby and itchy. And I don’t enjoy being crabby or itchy.

Last week Keurig came to my rescue when I received my monthly K-Cup shipment full of their Brew Over Ice varieties. As I made my way through the box it became increasingly clear that my summer was about to get a lot better and a lot cooler.

I don’t drink a lot of coffee in the summer, but I am a serious iced tea addict so I was pumped to find numerous flavors of iced tea including the Sweet Berry Lime variety that I used to make these festive Berry-Lime Popsicles.

I also discovered the awesomeness that is Iced Vanilla Coffee. It’s my 5pm go-to beverage for a quick pick me up and I’ve learned that it’s also pretty darn tasty if you add a little liqueur to them. Godiva + Iced Vanilla Coffee pretty much equals summer survival in a glass.

Speaking of summer survival, how about these fruit filled patriotic pops? They couldn’t be easier, tastier or more adorable for this weekend. I’m not providing a specific recipe, just a method that can be easily adapted to meet your specific tastes.

These look fabulous. I’ve been pregnant three times during the summer with July, August and September babies. For one of those I didn’t have air conditioning. I was the most unhappy person ever. Itch. Sweat. Drip. Wish I knew you then. Popsicle to the rescue. A berry-lime one at that.

I’ve been seeing a lot of these kind of ice popsickles around the blogosphere lately. Must get to Michael’s to get some sticks (is that where you get them??). In New England, I think it’s a sin to complain about the heat… it can be cold and rainy the next day so I’ll take it whenever I can ;)
