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.
