When the hot weather hits, it can be tempting to switch out our simple morning soy latte with one of those super-sweet iced coffee concoctions. The trouble is, many of these drinks - from the ubiquitous iced capp to bottled iced teas - are loaded with processed sugar. But don’t get us wrong: there’s absolutely nothing wrong with indulging in a bit of cafe patio therapy with your bestie. In fact, it’s required when the lazy days of summer hit! There are healthier ways to sip on the sweet life though, and here are a few tantalizing guilt-free drink options!

1. Stevia-Sweetened Sun-Brewed Tea

We all know that goinglow-carb is great for weight loss! So ditch the carbs all together and instead opt for stevia, a sweetener that’s sourced from a plant and can be purchased in both powdered and liquid form.

For a delicious iced tea, set a covered glass pitcher of filtered water, green or black tea leaves, and slices of lemon out in the sunshine. When it’s the desired strength, stir in liquid stevia to taste (two to four drops is equivalent to one teaspoon of sugar). Enjoy!

2. Vanilla-Cinnamon Iced Coffee

Forget about pumpkin spice! This coffee will have you smacking your lips while appreciating its healthful ingredients. As little as one gram per day of deliciouscinnamon has been shown to help reduce insulin resistance and resulting high blood sugar and to decrease LDL cholesterol.

Brew a cup of your favourite coffee and cool it. Add ice, five drops of pure vanilla and ten drops of liquid organic cinnamon extract (make sure it’s extract and not flavouring) and stir well. Yum!

3. Pure Honey Peach Tea

Bees and peaches go together both in nature and in taste. Unpasteurized, raw honey is a nutritious powerhouse that’s loaded with immune-system supporting antioxidants and which provides the body with easily-absorbable energy. Stir a spoonful into a brewed peach - or other fruit, if you prefer - tea on ice, and you’ve got a match made in heaven!

4. Summer Morning Coffee Smoothie

If you’re looking for an iced coffee that revs you up on a steamy morning, try this delicious and nutritioussmoothie. Combine your regular morning brew in a blender with a couple of ice cubes, a banana, half a cup of coconut milk, a shot of cinnamon, and a tablespoon of brain-nourishing, cholesterol-lowering cocoa powder. Enjoy!

5. Matcha Green Tea Latte

Bright green matcha tastes like it looks: refreshing, vibrant and leafy! This powdered green tea gets its colour from chlorophyll which is a powerful detoxifier. To make this nutritious, delicious drink, blend two tsp of matcha powder with two cups of almond milk and a tsp of honey. Pour over ice and enjoy!


With these drinks, you can help power your body, boost your health, and enjoy the refreshing tastes of hot summer weather. Drink up, and stay cool!

You could also put dried stevia leaves in the sun tea and sweeten it that way.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
