You guys know I love my scones. So easy to mix together, so tasty, so many flavor possibilities. When Keurig asked me to try out their Brew Over Ice flavors: Vitamin Burst Acai and Snapple Diet Peach Iced Tea, I knew that a scone would be the perfect snack to be paired with these tasty summer beverages.
I headed to Walmart to pick up these two varieties of Brew Over Ice k-cups. I was curious to see how they would work in my Keurig, which I’ve only used for hot beverages in the past.
It was super simple. You just brew over a ice-filled tumbler and drink! Use the 6 oz. (small) or 8 oz. (medium) setting for the best taste.
The Vitamin Burst Acai Berry is crazy delicious. And the Peach Iced Tea? I knew would be the perfect light, summery flavor when added to a basic scone recipe.
Mix the dry ingredients, mix the wet ingredients… with some freshly brewed iced tea, of course.
Knead away. I used my hands, but you could use a food processor, pastry cutter, or two knives. Whatever works for you!
Roll it out (not too perfectly, going for the rustic look) & pop in the oven.
10 minutes later, stir up a quick powdered sugar + water glaze, and drizzle it on for a finishing touch.
Deliciously-flaky, sweet scones with a hint of peach flavor. Yum!
Best served with iced tea!
