Simple Truth

Simple Summer Sipping

What’s better on a hot summer day than an ice cold drink? Whether you are lounging by a pool, grilling out or on your way to work few things can beat the first refreshing sip of your favorite summertime drink. Some go for the classic lemonade or perhaps a traditional sweet tea; others enjoy ice water while some like to change it up and add a slice of lemon or cucumber to their H2O. Those looking to indulge a bit may grab an iced coffee or something more decadent like a milkshake or root beer float. Regardless of your go-to beverage, Simple Truth can help you find a new favorite. Check out these options and ideas to find something new to sip this summer.

  • Simple Truth Organic Coffee or Simple Truth Single Serve Coffee Pods are a quick and tasty option for homemade iced coffee or blended beverages. Prepare the coffee however you like then pour over ice and enjoy.
  • Simple Truth 100% fruit juices are great on their own or can be used to make a slush drink for those really hot days; simply choose your favorite (I recommend Black Cherry or Pomegranate), pour into a plastic cup and place in your freezer until it reaches the desired ‘slushiness’.
  • You can also pour any of the juices into an ice tray and make juice ice cubes. These are a great way to add a little flavor to a glass of water (for adults and children alike) while also helping to keep it cold. As the ice melts, you water will be infused with just the right amount of fruit flavor.
  • No time to pour, blend or freeze? No problem. Simple Truth has you covered with any of the sparkling beverage options. The Cucumber Melon or Peach Pear varieties are especially nice this time of year. Get some fizz and flavor by simply popping the top.

How will you stay hydrated this summer?
