Simple Swaps for A Healthy Holiday Season

I am super excited to be partnering with Southern Breeze on Keeping Up With Coco during the most wonderful time of the year!

‘Tis the season for family, Frosty The Snowman, and food — lots of food.
While the holidays may be a merry time for your taste buds, it isn’t always the most ideal season for your skinny jeans. Yes, I’m looking at your Christmas cookies!

If you find yourself in a food coma more often than you would like to admit thanks to all the holiday festivities, you are not alone. Holiday food isn’t exactly known for being healthy and it only takes an extra spoonful to leave you asking yourself is it appropriate to unbutton my pants yet?

Lucky for you, there are some simple swaps that allow you to enjoy all of the delicious holiday food without constantly feeling bloated and uncomfortable. And don’t worry, I’m not talking about your favorite Christmas dessert. I’m talking about incorporating Southern Breeze Sweet Tea into your holiday drinks this holiday season.

Southern Breeze Sweet Tea is made with 100% real tea leaves in a pre-sweetened bag. Yes, they put the sweetener in the bag and it’s zero calories.

Southern Breeze has no sugar, no calories, and no carbs, making it diet and keto-friendly!
No measuring, just steep, and enjoy! Yes, it’s really that easy. Their cold brew sweet tea brews in cold water in just five minutes and each tea bag is individually wrapped to ensure you brew fresh tea every time.

We are here because I wanted to give you some simple swaps this holiday season to help you save calories. Since Southern Breeze is zero calories it makes the perfect addition to any holiday drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

Below you will find a few of my favorite drink combos using Southern Breeze. By using Southern Breeze, you do not need to add any extra sweeteners or flavoring which helps with both calories and ease. I am the type of at-home bartender to cross my fingers and hope it tastes good. With the measurements below as well as some expert eyeballing my drinks came out perfect!

Fun Fact! Southern Breeze Cold Brew Sweet Tea can actually steep in seltzer! I use this little trick all the time since I feel like bubbles just make everything fancy. Seltzer is also perfect for minimizing calories!

Southern Breeze also has an entire website page dedicated to drink recipes, how lucky are we!? They have everything from Blackberry Sweet Tea Sangria, to Watermelon Slush, to Cranberry Sweet Tea.

Let’s face it, making healthy substitutions and swaps year-round is a complete no brainer if you are looking to cut down on calories. I am a firm believer in not drinking your calories and Southern Breeze really helps you do exactly that. Southern Breeze makes a perfect substitution for a mocktail or a cocktail or a regular sweet southern tea!

Thanks again to Southern Breeze for sponsoring and collaborating with me on this post!
