Recipe Time: Easy Lemonade Popsicles

Recipe Time: Easy Lemonade Popsicles

Summer is quickly approaching which means the days are going to get longer and hotter! Sometimes on a hot summer day the perfect thing is a popsicle.   The best thing about popsicles is how versatile they are! Any juice, smoothie or drink can be made into a popsicle! All you need are the molds J So we thought what about making some Original Long Island Iced Tea Lemonades popsicles? Sounds like a great idea!

Our recommendation to make these popsicles even better is to chop up some fruit and add it to the mold. Cherries with cherry lemonade, strawberries with our Strawberry Lemonade, Peach with the Peach Lemonade…Or be bold and mix it up!

Here is the incredibly simple recipe for some amazing summer desserts:

  • Add the fruit to the mold and then pour in the lemonade
  • Put in the stick or the base
  • Let it freeze

Tip: When it is ready, to get it out run the mold under some warm water

There you have it: a delicious and refreshing summer treat!

Staying True to our Unconventionality

Staying True to our Unconventionality

It all started with the name, which granted we did not create, but we liked.  We wondered why no one had made a non-alcoholic iced tea with that name before!  It was a little unconventional and rebellious to make a product that is literally Iced Tea from Long Island because it was already so connected to this famous cocktail!

            This unconventionality is something that is close to our hearts and we try to stay true to! We make all our tea with non-GMO ingredients and 100% raw cane sugar because we want to use the best ingredients.  Our better-for-you beverages are not just a gimmick to charge high prices, because they really are better for you and are sold for a reasonable price.   We want to change the way people think about health and make sure they know that healthy choices do not automatically break the bank. 

In addition to that we did not want our product to be boxed in as only being for teens, skaters, or moms and their kids.  We want our teas, and now lemonades, to be for everyone.  We also wanted to make a beverage that everyone could drink anywhere at anytime! It is perfect for the office, school, a road trip, with lunch or for a spontaneous beach day! Long Island Iced Tea is the ideal companion for any adventure because it’s a little rebellious and refuses to be boxed in!

Get Excited - Our ALL NEW Lemonade is soon to hit stores near you!

Get Excited - Our ALL NEW Lemonade is soon to hit stores near you!

We are excited to announced the launch of The Original Long Island Brand™ Lemonade. Infused with a splash of tea and made with 100% raw cane sugar and non-GMO ingredients for a crisp, refreshing and natural taste, this premium lemonade is highly differentiated from other lemonade beverages in the US market.

Philip Thomas, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “Beyond creating a delicious and refreshing lemonade, we made sure that the “better-for-you” attributes that are prominent within our iced tea range were incorporated into our new lemonade brand.” “This exciting new lemonade is available in nine real-fruit flavors, including Traditional, Lime, Peach, Watermelon, Mango, Strawberry, Kiwi Strawberry, Cherry and Wildberries, and incorporates a subtle splash of tea essence. We feel the Company is bringing a true point of difference to the conventional lemonade brands on the market today,” Mr. Thomas added.

The addition of the lemonade brand to the Company’s portfolio comes after the recent acquisition of Alo Juice®. This further establishes the Company as a key player within the “better-for-you” beverage category. Mr. Thomas commented, “Long Island Iced Tea® products are moving successfully in stores and we saw the opportunity to leverage our brand and positioning to capitalize on a different product offering. One that we believe would excite current customers and attract new consumers to our brand.”

According to IBISWorld, lemonade comprises 8.2% of the $12.0 billion juice market in 2016¹. Lemonade sales totaled 451 million liters in 2015².

The Original Long Island Brand™ Lemonade range consists of 9 real-fruit flavors, available in both single 18oz bottles and 12-packs. The product is a natural complement to the Company’s Long Island Iced Tea®, which comprises 12 different iced tea flavors available in single 18oz bottles, gallons and 12-packs.

Why Cane Sugar is Better for You than Other Sweeteners

Why Cane Sugar is Better for You than Other Sweeteners

Sugar is a touchy subject in today’s increasingly health conscious world. More and more people are cutting sugar out of their diets, or at least switching to less harmful sweeteners.  But when there are so many sweeteners, from stevia to coconut sugar, is it hard to know what to look out for and avoid. 

High fructose corn syrup and white sugar are the worst of the worst.  They are the most processed, most condensed, and cheapest sugars that you can buy. The more processed something is, the more nutrients are stripped from it and the less benefits it offers to your body.  This is why high fructose corn syrup is basically empty calories, there are no nutrients and most of it is stored as fat!

Raw cane sugar is less processed than white sugar and high fructose corn syrup and it is made from sugar cane instead of beets or corn.  Surprisingly white granulated sugar is usually made from beets! Because the cane sugar is less processed more of the nutrients remain and it is not totally empty calories.  Of course it is still sugar and should be consumed in moderation but you can take solace in the fact that when you drink your favorite flavor of Long Island Iced Tea it is sweetened with 100% Raw Cane Sugar! Keep an eye out for the release of our Unsweetened Flavor for days when you are kicking all sugars to the curb!

4 Reasons to Stay Away from High Fructose Corn Syrup

4 Reasons to Stay Away from High Fructose Corn Syrup

Did you know that the average person in the US consumes about 142 pounds a year of sugar, most of which is high fructose corn syrup? So how bad could high fructose corn syrup really be? Here are our top 4 reasons.

  1. High fructose corn syrup has been linked to many different health issues, and research shows that contaminants, including high levels of mercury, are often present in your food or drink.
  2. High fructose corn syrup has little to no nutritional value and a large number of empty calories, so while you might feel full, your body is still craving nutrients.
  3. The products most people rely on to lose weight are often the ones highest in fructose, making it harder for people to lose weight, especially in a healthy way.
  4. Sugar isn’t just sugar. When you eat 120 calories of glucose, less than one calorie is stored as fat, but when you consume 120 calories of fructose, it leads to 40 calories being stored as fat. That’s basically like consuming fat!

Some people suggest using artificial sweeteners or agave syrup as alternatives to high fructose corn syrup, but in the long run, they can be even more damaging to your health than fructose. On the other hand, raw cane sugar only has 15 to 20 calories per teaspoon, and contains a large amount of the original vitamins and nutrients found in sugar cane.

High fructose corn syrup is far from natural and neither are its alternatives, and our bodies deserve better. That’s why Long Island Iced tea only uses 100% Raw Cane Sugar in our iced teas, because we believe in smarter beverage choices that still taste great, without the potential damaging health effects.

So the next time you’re reaching for your favorite sugary drink, consider what heathier alternate option are available and pick yourself up a nice cold and refreshing Long Island Iced Tea.
