I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Summer is winding down, and the kids are headed back to school as the weather begins to cool back down. Here in drought ridden California, the end of summer gives the hopes of our rainy season over the fall and winter so while we look forward with hope for some hydration around here, I am squeezing in all the outdoor time I can get with my kids!

We recently upgraded our backyard from dirt and weeds into a safe and fun place for our kids to play and a place for my husband and I to wind down and relax inour own little world. One thing I insisted we get for our new space was a hammock. Oh, how I longed to lay lazily in a hammock while my kids played happily beside me out in our backyard! When the yard was finally finished, that hammock was the first piece of furniture to go out there. Laying in my hammock is a little vacation. I can relax (as much as a mom can!) and breathe a little while my kids play in the sandbox or jump on the trampoline.

It has become my morning routine now to come back from dropping my oldest off at school, put the baby down for a nap and go out in the backyard with my middle son to play. We play one on one for a bit, and then he usually wants to play by himself for a bit. That’s when I sneak into my little backyard oasis and drink my much needed coffee (momma is up all night these days!). With three boys around, I don’t always have the time to make a pot of coffee, so thank goodness for Gevalia’s new Iced Coffee with Almond Milk!Relaxing with Gevalia Almond Milk Coffee

Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk is a new ready-to-drink iced coffee beverage with the goodness of almond milk and they are life savers for a busy mom who just wants a few quiet moments! I grab one out of the fridge and indulge in the tasty treat while I kick back in the hammock. My kids lovingly call them “Mommy’s juice box” because they’re my treat even though they look just like the kid’s juice boxes.Back to School Relaxation

These babies are made with a blend of 100% Arabica Gevalia coffee, real sugar and packed with 9 grams of protein per single serve carton, meaning I can feel good about indulging in the quality coffee and  creamy almond milk goodness! Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk is available in Mocha, Vanilla and Caramel, but Caramel is by far my favorite flavor!

So for the three hours I get while my oldest is at school, I can pretend I only have two little ones again and breathe deep while I stretch out and concentrate on some (semi) alone time that almost always turns into a snuggle fest in the hammock…which is just fine too!
