Trop50 asked me to share what I think is “Refreshingly Different” about myself. I haven’t really given it much thought, but it’s a great question. I think I’m pretty down to earth and fair. That makes me refreshing. But I also wanted to know what YOU thought what made me refreshingly different and I want to know what makes YOU refreshingly different. So I put the question to my readers on facebook.
Amy said: ” The amazing flexiblity you have on buses . Your ability to listen and be a great mentor.” Let’s just say the bus had a pole and I decided to stretch my leg.
Lisa said: “That you are always true to yourself (!) and are unblinkingly generous.” She has to say that, she lives in my neighborhood.
Tauni said: ” 1) great sense of humor 2) you’re a mom and you still have strong opinions about things other than kids.” If I wasn’t talking about my son, then I must have been talking about my dog.
Amanda said: ” I like that you are opinionated and ok with that. I respect that you tell it like you see it.” Amanda is another neighbor of mine. I didn’t realize so many neighbors read my TCB facebook. Obviously I haven’t offended her yet like I have so many others in my neighborhood.
Laura said: “Your were immediately inclusive to me. I love that you seem genuine and not fake. You tell it like it is and own it” Looks like I’m pretty opinionated. Laura is Cindy’s assistant who I’m going to steal someday.
One thing I do know, is I like refreshing drinks……..preferably slushy drinks on a hot day! And if they have a little sumpin sumpin in them…….you’ll know it’s past noon.
Trop50 sent me a few samples to try of their Trop50 Juice with Tea. If you’ve been reading my blog for at least a year, you know I love iced green tea. So when I tasted the Raspberry with Green Tea I knew I needed to slush it up! YUM! Making a batch of these for your Memorial Day BBQ would be perfect.
Memorial Day Trop50 Raspberry with Green Tea Slushy
- In a blender, mix crushed ice with the Juice Beverage Tea of your choice.
- Blend and serve.
Found in the chilled aisle, the line includes Trop50 Peach with White Tea, Trop50 Raspberry with Green Tea, and Trop50 Pear Lychee with White Tea. It’s really hard to choose a favorite. My son loved the Pear Lychee with White Tea.
- Trop50Juice with Tea is a new line of juice beverages that offers fruit juice goodness with 50 percent fewer calories, now with tea!
- These refreshingly different juice with tea combinations are made with delicious fruit juices and white and green teas to deliver a great-tasting and nutritious juice beverage.
- With 35-40 calories in each 8-ounce glass, they provide a full day’s supply of vitamin C and good source of antioxidant vitamin E.
Trop50 has more than just Tea blends. I’m also loving their Red Orange Juice beverage. Of course it’s yummy to drink but I’ve enjoyed cooking with it. I’ve been making a quick marinade for the best BBQ Chicken ever! Just in time for the holiday weekend!
Trop50 Red Orange Marinade
- 1/2 cup Trop50 Red Orange Juice Beverage
- 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
- Crushed Garlic cloves- I use 3
- 1 tsp Grated Ginger (or 1/2 tsp dried ginger)
Mix well, then pour over Chicken to marinate. I like to marinate my chicken at least 2 hours before throwing on the grill.
