Key Lime Pie

**Disclosure: This post is sponsored by HoneyMaid. Compensation was provided by Mode Media. 

Summer pie season is officially here! With the Fourth of July just a few days away I thought this was the perfect time to share an old family favorite recipe for a Key Lime pie. Usually my Fourth of July is spent with family and friends grilling and watching fireworks. I love desserts and I haven’t been able to bake as much since my oven is still broken. To satisfy my families cravings and mine I decided to prepare this no-bake Key Lime pie. This recipe steers away a little bit from tradition because I used Greek yogurt and lime zest.

Mango Peach Agua Frescas

Many of you don’t know I gave up drinking alcohol about a year ago when I was really sick last summer. I have to say there are times when I do miss a nice cocktail but I do still enjoy making drinks for friends. That doesn’t stop me making drinks for the blog because I still love doing so. My friends are shocked that I gave up alcohol for a whole year because they know how much I love wine. I hope to slowly reintroduce a glass of wine into my life every once in a while sometime later this summer now that I’m back to good health.

I now just stick to water, tea, fresh juice and mocktails. So today I’m sharing one my favorite summer drink recipes for an Agua Fresca. Agua Frescas are light and refreshing drinks found near Mexican food trucks. I first tasted an Agua Fresca at a Mexican restaurant a few years ago. So refreshing! Today I’m using fresh herbs from my garden and in season fruits to mix up this delicious mocktail. I hope you enjoy my Mango Peach Agua Fresca.

Sweet Tea Popsicles

This week in Atlanta temperatures will hit record setting highs all week. Although I do love being outdoors I hate the humidity and the heat. To cool off a bit this week I decided to make sweet tea popsciscles to celebrate National Iced Tea month. As a southern girl I can’t remember a summer without iced tea on the table. 

Using my new Teavana Art of Iced Tea Kit I decided to make popsicles using a blend of their Raspberry Limeade and Pineapple Berry Blue teas. The aromas of these blends are so tropical and fruity.

Ingredients:

2 tsp of Teavana Raspberry Limeade Tea

2 tsp of Teavana Pineapple Berry Blue 

1 tablespoon of Rock Sugar (comes in the kit)

1 popsicles mold

Follow the instructions on your 32 oz Perfectea Maker on how to make the tea. Once the tea is made add the blend to the popsicle mold and freeze for 3 hours.

Don’t have a Teavana near you? Well you are in luck because today I’m giving away one Art of Iced Tea kit to one lucky Eat.Drink.Shop.Love reader. Please comment below telling me how are you beating the heat this summer.

It’s officially BBQ and pool season. I’ve already grilled several times this summer so far. The one thing I love about grilling is that you can cook so many healthy dishes in such a short amount of time. When I not grilling at my condo and I’m headed to join friends or family at a BBQ, I love bringing cold salads like a pasta salad or this delicious Arugula Watermelon Feta Salad that I’m sharing today. 

I had this salad about a year ago at Yeah Burger at dinner with a friend. We both loved recipe so much that we decided to recreate one on our own. 

The great thing about this dish is that most of the ingredients came from my local farmers market and garden. It’s quick and easy and can be refrigerated until ready to eat.
