It was 102° today in the Treasure Valley of Idaho. Happily, our temps will begin to descend into the mid-to-high 90's. I am not alone. Many of you are coping with harsh heat, along with humidity!
Refreshment is more than AC, an ocean, lake, or swimming pool. Icy beverages provide a speedy path to relief. Of course, water is a mainstay, but who wants to nix sweetness and flavor?
In years past, lemonade, sugared tea, Italian sodas, and Dr. Pepper were my summer go-to's. Now, I favor unsweetened Tejava; loose leaf refrigerator tea; iced coffee; Starbuck's iced unsweetened passion tea; and Bai Antioxidant Infusion.
Costco carries this Bai® Sunrise Variety Pack™ which contains 15 18-fluid-ounce bottles of Antioxidant Infusions, with only 6g of carbs per 8-ounce serving! The sweetener is a blend of stevia and erythritol. It hits the spot and my family loves it!
I pour about an inch of heavy cream into a medium sized glass, followed by 8 ounces of a Bai flavor, and then add ice. It is a welcome imitation of an Italian soda—without the sugar and carbs.
