Good Energy on the Go with Starbucks Refreshers

June means warmer weather; afternoons sitting on the deck, luxuriously sipping an iced beverage while I read a book and think about my week….. wait, what?!?! That doesn’t sound like my June afternoons.  That is because June is the busiest month for my family.  Some say December is their busiest month, but June ranks way above.  During the month of June, we 6 family birthdays, wind ups for the kids yearly activities, soccer, baseball and gearing up for the end of school.  This year, I am even expecting the arrival of my 12th niece/nephew.

Starbucks Refreshers Good Energy

Because June is so crazy for me, my afternoons are generally spent running errands and getting as much stuff done as I can before the kids come home from school.  My mornings, however, are spent with some time for me that encourages me to live the rest of my day out with some good energy.  I take time 4 mornings a week to workout and to do something good for my body.  During these crazy afternoons though, instead of taking the time to sit on my deck relaxing and sipping an iced drink, I need something that will get me through the day and that is quick and easy.

Enter Starbucks Refreshers!

Starbucks Refreshers

These tall cans of refreshing flavors provide perfect energy for on-the-go days.  Grab one as you are heading out the door, or pick one up in the store while shopping.  The Strawberry Lemonade and the Raspberry Pomegranate are my favorite flavors and hubby enjoyed the Strawberry Lemonade too.

On the rare occasion that I do have a few minutes to sit down on the deck and enjoy a nice iced beverage, Starbucks Refreshers are perfect for that too!
