Keeping it Light: Low-Calorie K-Cup® Options for Summer

We understand that some people are watching their calorie intake during the summer. You can still enjoy delicious coffee without derailing your health goals. Most K-Cup® coffee is calorie-free! However, you should avoid K-Cup® pods that are creamy or sweetened as they do tend to have calories. Choose sugar-free syrups, stevia packets, or unsweetened nut milk to keep the calorie count low.

Beyond the Cup: Summer Coffee Accessories

Enhance your summer coffee experience with some fun accessories! Here are a few ideas:

  • K-Iced® Keurig® Coffee Maker: You can make iced coffee with any Keurig® brewer. But the K-Iced® model offers enhanced features to improve the quality of your cold brew.
  • Iced Coffee Tumblers: Invest in a stylish and insulated iced coffee tumbler cup. A great cup makes for a more enjoyable sip and keeps your iced coffee cold for hours.
  • Coffee Ice Cube Trays: Freeze leftover brewed coffee in ice cube trays. Enjoy slow-melting coffee ice cubes that won’t dilute your drink.
  • Coffee Stencils: Feeling fancy? Up your iced coffee game with coffee stencils. Create fun designs on top of your iced latte with cinnamon or cocoa powder.

With some planning and the right tools, you can transform your Keurig® into a summer coffee haven. Embrace the endless possibilities of delicious and refreshing summer coffee creations! Here is where to find them>>

Beyond the Flavor: Making Perfect Keurig® Iced Coffee

While summer flavors and iced coffee pods can enhance your cold coffee, you can use any K-Cup® pod you like. Here’s how to prevent watered-down iced coffee:

  • Brew strength: Use the strong brew setting on your Keurig® for iced coffee, as the ice can dilute it. This ensures a bolder flavor that the ice won’t water it down.
  • Brew over ice setting: Some Keurig® models have a dedicated “brew over ice” setting. This feature allows you to brew a concentrated coffee over a full cup of ice to minimize dilution.
  • Ice cube choice: Make coffee ice cubes by freezing leftover brewed coffee in an ice cube tray. This allows you to enjoy your coffee longer without a change in flavor.
