‘THE’ summer time customer favorite tea has to be our refreshing Watermelon Oolong Tea. This tea will quickly become the soda-replacement for refreshment, and such a more healthy choice. Iced with a garnish of fresh melon or strawberries or even fresh basil, this beverage quickly becomes the new favorite party mock-tail. Here’s a great summer treat recipe for Watermelon Sweet Tea Popsicles we found on that we think you’ll love!

Watermelon Ice Pops
2 cups of prepared watermelon oolong tea

sweeten to your preference
2 cups of diced watermelon, pureed


Blend prepared tea with watermelon puree and then pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for appropriate amount of time. Enjoy!
For an extra treat throw in some other fresh fruit such as blueberries, strawberry slices or even fresh basil for another flavor boost.

An easy kitchen-hack and some cheesy deliciousness lets you bring this pub favorite snack to the party!
Don’t worry if you don’t usually consume beer, you can simply substitute with chicken broth. If you still want the tangy flavor profile that beer brings without the alcohol you can add 1 tablespoon of our Beer Extract Powder to the chicken broth for a great alternative!
And if you don’t have a cast iron pan, an oven proof baking dish works just as perfectly!

Pretzel Ring Beer Cheese Dip
1 3/4 c. shredded cheddar
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
1 8oz block cream cheese
1 1/2 Tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp. fresh chopped chives
2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 c. pale ale beer
(OR 1/4 c. prepared chicken broth with1tbls beer extract powder for flavor)
pinch of Kosher salt & black pepper
1 16oz can of refrigerated biscuits
2 tbsp. baking soda
1 lg. egg mixed with 1 tbsp. of water for brushing biscuits
Coarse salt for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, stir together 1 1/2 cups cheddar, mozzarella, cream cheese, Dijon, chives, garlic powder, and beer and season with salt and pepper.
Halve each biscuit and roll into a ball, then slice an X across the top.
In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups water and baking soda to a boil and whisk to dissolve. Immediately reduce heat to maintain a simmer. Add biscuits in batches and cook until puffy, 1 minute, then remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a 10″ or 12″ ovenproof skillet, forming a ring along the inside edge.
Brush biscuits with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse salt. Transfer dip to center of skillet and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheddar.
Bake until biscuits are golden and dip is bubbly, 33 to 35 minutes.
Garnish with chives before serving.

With tomato season & beach-body season kicking off we thought you might enjoy this tasty and healthy snack alternative. These little crisps also serve up nicely as a side garnish for salads and soups or even layer into your favorite sandwich for flavorful crunch.

Parmesan Tomato Chips

Cooking spray, for cooling rack
15 assorted tomatoes, sliced 1/3″ thick
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp. Italian seasoning or Pesto Seasoning
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 275º and grease a cooling rack with cooking spray, then place on top of a large baking sheet.
On a large, paper towel-lined plate, arrange tomatoes and cover with another paper towel, then press out juices. Place tomatoes on cooling rack and lightly drizzle with olive oil, then season generously with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
Bake, checking every 30 minutes, until tomatoes are completely dried out and beginning to crisp up, about 3 hours.
Remove from oven and heat broiler. Sprinkle tomatoes with Parmesan, then broil on low until cheese is melty, 1 to 2 minutes.
Let cool, then remove from cooling rack. Garnish with additional salt, pepper and Italian seasoning, if desired, and serve.
