It's not summer yet (thankfully), but this year I'll have another treat to add to my list...and this one's perfectly healthy. On a recent Whole Foods spree, while looking for an ice cream substitute, I saw a product called Frostea: ice pops made out of different kinds of tea. It's dairy free, gluten free, calorie reduced, and did I mention it was made from TEA?! All right, the one I selected was made from herbal tea, but that's fine too. Caffeine free! It was called "Cool your jets", which is perfect. It had chamomile, lemon, mint, and is sweetened with honey. It tasted really good, and refreshing. Actually, it reminded me of the smell that comes from opening a box of Celestial Seasoning's Sleepytime. How peacefully nostalgic.

Even better, I can finally have an ice pop, the ones you squeeze out of the plastic and try not to spill all over yourself, and not feel like I'm eating something completely worthless and childish. Of course, I might indulge in a scrape ice from time to time (I love scraping with the wooden spoon!), but I think I'll try Frostea's other flavors first.

Yeah, it sounds like something I might try. Tasty, fun and healthy: you can't beat that.
I like the root beer at Trader Joe's that's actually made with real roots, and cane sugar - no high fructose corn syrup! Although I generally stay away from soda, that's my fun soda indulgence. And with a scoop of vanilla ice cream...mmm that's a good root beer float. Can you tell I'm hungry as I'm typing this?

yum! yeah, you either love root beer or you hate it. Some say it tastes like medicine, but i love root beer, and even better, root beer floats! and the scrape ices- i think that's one of the only things i like about summer.
