The end of summer is near, but we’re not quite ready to throw in the beach towel just yet! There are so many delicious ways to use True Citrus in your everyday cooking, but why not experiment with some frozen goodness before the weather starts cooling down?

Here are some amazing frozen recipes to make at home with True Citrus!

Frosty Fruits and Veggies
For a change to your morning smoothie, try a chilled “treat” packed full of nutrition! Blend 1 handful of leafy greens (try kale or spinach), frozen pineapple, 1 cup of water, and 1 packet of True Orange Mango Orange. Pour into popsicle molds (or maybe even a few Zipzicles) and freeze overnight for a refreshingly healthy breakfast on the go!

For a little extra kick of antioxidants (and caffeine), add matcha green tea powder before blending.

Coffee Chiller
If you love iced coffee on a warm summer day, you may never go back after trying these! Brew your favorite black coffee, and while still warm combine with a tablespoon or two of honey. Mix with a few splashes of almond milk and pour into popsicle molds, freeze overnight, and thank us in the morning.

Trying to cut back on caffeine? Try substituting tea instead! Our favorite is to use a fruity herbal tea with a packet of True Peach Lemonade. Yum, yum.

Bourbon Slush
For adults only, this slushy treat will help you enjoy the last toasty evenings of summertime on your patio. Combine 4 cups of black tea with 3 cups bourbon, and 24 ounces of water. Add in 3 packets of True Lemon Original Lemonade, and 12 ounces of thawed frozen orange juice concentrate. Dump the mixture into a large glass casserole dish with a tight-fitting lid, and freeze for at least 8 hours. To serve, scoop into glasses and serve with a spoon. As the mixture melts, it gets easier to sip!
