Refreshing Iced Coffees

It is an undeniable fact that a cup of coffee offers comfort to millions of people. From its luscious aromas to the reassuring warmth of a cup held by cold hands on a frosty morning, coffee holds a special place in our hearts. But when the heat of summer arrives, it is the cold, iced coffee and frothy frappuccino that help us get through the day or provide a sweet reward for a job well done. 

Cold brew coffees are ideal for anyone who struggles with acid sensitivity. The cold brewing method extracts fewer acids from the coffee beans resulting in a smoother, lower acid cup. (The Toddy Cold Brew System is under $40 and perfect for home use.) Whether you need the punch of caffeine or prefer decaf, cold brews are generally served over ice. The latest trend is to top your brew with a small layer of almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, sweet cream and even chocolate or caramel milk flavors. Pour gently on top and enjoy the rich sweetness with comparatively few calories.

The frappuccino is a different beast all together.  It consists of plentiful crushed ice, a shot or two of espresso and, of course, the milk or cream of your choice.  The more the ice used, the lighter and more refreshing the drink! What makes it all the more fun are the flavors that you can play with. 

Caramel Frappuccinos are incredibly popular, especially when topped with white cream and, perhaps, cinnamon, caramel drizzle, toasted coconut or salted caramel chips. If chocolate is your thing, mocha frappuccinos are fabulous especially when topped with a wee bit of chocolate syrup. And for the family members who don’t enjoy coffee, you can always make a light, refreshing fruit frappuccinos sans espresso.

Here are some recipes that we hope you’ll enjoy making that cost the fraction of what you might pay at your local coffee shop.  Remember, if the acid does bother you, 2 caplets of Prelief will reduce more than  90% of the acid in a  typical cup of coffee. 

Simple Iced Latte

From unbearable pain to active Mom again

Hi,Thank you for talking with me today. I had called to tell you how wonderful your Prelief product is. I have been suffering from bladder pain for years. It started after I had my 1st child and got worse after my 2nd. I have gone to numerous doctors for what I initially thought were recurring bladder infections.


Regards, N.M.

A distressed college student finds normalcy and happiness

Hi there, I have interstitial cystitis (IC), also known as “painful bladder syndrome. ” As a 25 year old man in college, having this painful disease is very distressing not only due to the significant discomfort, but also because it affects my mood, my ability to study and do well on exams, and my willingness to participate in activities and live a full life. My urologist has had me on Elmiron, various antidepressants, pain medications, and more to treat my IC.
