Southern Breeze Cold Brew Sweet Tea & Mocktail Recipe

Hello friends! 

I have a fun new product to share with you: 

I also created a delicious Iced Tea Recipe below. 

Here is my opinion-

I love that Souther Breeze Cold Brew is so easy to make. I enjoy tea and actually prefer tea when it is cold. This cold brew tea is handy because you don't have to heat water to make it. I actually love all four of the flavors, but if I had to choose a favorite flavor it would be the Raspberry Cold Brew Sweet Tea. I do not like to drink my calories, so I appreciate that this is a calorie free option. My second favorite flavor is the Half and Half Cold Brew Sweet Tea, followed by the Peach Cold Brew Sweet Tea, and lastly the Original Cold Brew Sweet Tea. 

My two favorite times to drink this tea is on my way to work in the morning or after dinner. In the morning, our bodies need to be hydrated from sleeping all night. I always try to drink at least 32 oz of water on my way to work in the morning. Sometimes it is hard to drink just plain water, so I have found this tea helps me drink more water. After dinner, I love to have something sweet. My diet does not always allow me to have an actual dessert, so this sweet tea helps curbs my craving. 

-Southern Breeze is a calorie free & guilt free so you can enjoy glass after glass
-Cold Brew Southern Breeze is a single serving so you can take it with you or enjoy it at home

-Southern Breeze Cold Brew is so easy to make: simply pour 8 oz. of water over 1 tea bag and let it steep for 5 minutes. After steeping, toss out the tea bag and add ice!
-All of the zero calorie Southern Breeze Products are available here:

Some more information for you:

-Southern Breeze puts the sweetener in the tea bag & it has ZERO Calories. This allows consumers to enjoy the drink guilt free. I know many people who LOVE sweet tea! Every glass will taste Southern Sweet!

Let me try to answer some questions you may have:

1) Does this use real tea leaves? 

Yes, every single bad contains real tea leaves, not a powder or instant tea mixture. Southern Breeze Sweet Tea is made from real black tea leaves in a real tea bad so you can fresh brew your tea. What's so easy is that the sweetener is already in the tea bag. You can have fresh brewed sweet tea in minutes. 

2) Does Southern Breeze have any experience with tea?

Yes, Southern Breeze Sweet Tea comes from people who know a lot about sweet tea and even more about tea itself. What's inside the tea bags? It's a story, a journey about quality & taste, one that starts and ends with real black tea leaves. 

3) What sweetener is used in the tea bags?

Southern Breeze Sweet Tea is sweetened with Splenda Brand Sweetener. The ingredients for the Raspberry Cold Brew Sweet Tea are: real tea leaves, hibiscus, natural flavor, malic acid, sucralose. 

4) Does it contain caffeine?

Yes, Southern Breeze Sweet Tea does contain caffeine. All tea has a natural source of caffeine. It is about half of the caffeine that you would get from a cup of coffee. 

5) Where is the Southern Breeze Sweet Tea made?

Southern Breeze Sweet Tea is blended and pack in the heart of the Southern U.S. in Marietta, Georgia. 

6) Can I purchase Southern Breeze Sweet Tea in a store?

Yes, you can! Before you run to your nearest store, check out the Store Locator on this website:

You can also see which flavors are available at each store. 

7) Are there other recipes I can create with this sweet tea?

Yes, you can check out more delicious recipes here:

8) Who can I contact?

If you need assistance about the products or company, you can email: or call 855-282-6186

Now for the Iced Tea Recipe:

Southern Breeze Zero Calorie Mocktails


8 oz. of water
1 Southern Breeze Raspberry Cold Brew Sweet Tea Bag
1 can of raspberry seltzer water
1 lemon sliced


Add the tea bag to the water.

Let it steep for 5 minutes.

Once 5 minutes are up, dip the tea bag in and out of the water so that the color and flavor disperse through the water. Discard the tea bag. 

Next, pour the tea into a larger glass mug, add the raspberry seltzer water & lemons. 

Stir the drink so that the flavors combine.

I hope you enjoy! 

Also, you all know I like to be honest with you. This post is a sponsored post. The information regarding the products came first hand from Southern Breeze Cold Brew Sweet Tea & their website. My personal opinions are my own and are honest and truthful. The tea bags were given to me by the company, but I would buy these myself if I can find them at a store near me.

{Aloha Protein}

Hello cupcakes!

I had the opportunity to try out some Aloha Protein and I want to share my honest review with you!

GUYS... I am obsessing over this bar! The flavor is amazing and I am totally in love with the little chocolate chips that are throughout the bar. It's all plant based, so it's vegan friendly. The bar is also dairy free, gluten free, soy free, and non-GMO. Here are my ratings:

Taste: 10/10
Texture: 10/10
Price: 6/10
 *$30 for 12 bars, $2.50 per bar*
Ingredients: 9/10
Macros: 8/10
*14 g fat, 20 g carbs, 14 g protein*
It has a pretty good balance of fats, proteins, and carbs & a super good snack to keep you full between meals. 

Now for the protein...

I was able to try the vanilla, chocolate, and banana protein powder. They are all gluten free, vegan, dairy free, soy free, contain no stevia, and nothing artificial. 

Taste: 6/10
Texture: 6/10
Price: 6/10
Ingredients: 8/10
Macros: 7/10 
4 g fat, 10 g carbs, 18 g protein

I made the recipe below using the vanilla protein. Cost is $30 for 15 servings, $2 per serving. Here is an example of the protein powder ingredients specifically for the vanilla protein powder:

Protein Blend* (Pea Protein*, Pumpkin Seed Protein*, Hemp Seed Protein*), Coconut Water Powder*, Coconut Cream*, Coconut Sugar*, Vanilla Bean*, Apple Juice Powder*, Madagascar Cinnamon*, Xanthan Gum, Pink Sea Salt, Sunflower Lecithin*, Monk Fruit Extrac

* Organic, Contains: Coconut"

Price: 6/10
 Ingredients: 8/10
Macros: 7/10
4.5 g fat, 10 g carbs, 18 g protein
*I have not tried this flavor yet, but I plan to try it this week & I will update this section*

Taste: 8/10
Texture: 7/10
Price: 6/10
 Ingredients: 8/10
Macros: 7/10
2 g fat, 13 g carbs, 18 g protein

I mixed one serving with 12 oz water & used a packet to create the recipe below. The protein shake I made was a little gritty. The cost is $30 for 15 servings, $2 per serving. The ingredients only scored an 8 because there are a little too many carbs for my liking, but I understand where the carbs came from and why they are in there.  UPDATE: let the protein powder mixed with water sit in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours and the flavor and texture improve! I would rate this flavor 8/10 when it sits for awhile. 

Overall, I like this protein powder since it is natural. I usually prefer protein powder with less carbs since I am counting my macros at the moment, but if my macros allowed I would totally fit this in for the day. It can be a great protein powder to travel with since you get some fats, proteins, and carbs. I like that there are 18 grams of protein. The cost is a little expensive for my preference, but if you are interested in getting a protein powder that is all natural & you have a food intolerance, allergy, or dietary preferences this could be a good option for you!

Now for my fun & macro friendly recipe...

DIY Protein Bites

90 grams of ground pepitas
1 serving of Aloha Banana Protein Powder
1 serving of Aloha Vanilla Protein Powder
1 T of Anthony's Goods Peanut Flour
2 T Anthony's Goods Chia Seeds
1 scoop of Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin
1/4 cup of lite maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
1 banana
2 T of chocolate chips

Yields: 12 bites
Macros per bite: 10 g. fat, 10 g. carbs, 7 g. protein

In a food processor, add all ingredients except chocolate chips. Process until all the ingredients are mixed together and a dough forms. Next, stir in the chocolate chips. Add the batter to a mini muffin pan and pack the dough down. Once all of the mini muffin areas are filled, place the pan in the refrigerator to set. Allow the protein bites to harden for about 1 hour. Store the leftovers in the refrigerator.
