Summer time in Portland means all the long days (the sun only goes down around 10 PM!) and all the outdoor activities.  If you live in Portland, or have ever visited, then you know that Portlanders love to drink outdoors in the summer time! The outdoor patios are packed with happy people enjoying some sunshine and cold beverages, mostly alcoholic.

I’m not here to bash alcohol; I mean we have a Sip N Sweat event at Flex & Flow every month, which involves getting our sweat on and then going to a bar and getting our sip on! I am just here to introduce you to a Sip n Sweat of the non-alcohol variety, for your day to day activities. Instead of grabbing that ice cold beer after a great bootcamp or a fun run, try a mocktail instead! This can be water with chopped fresh fruit, mint, and ice. Or it try it with sparkling water if you’re craving those bubbles!

I recently tried out some tasty products from IdealShape as I participate in the #IdealShapeGoals #SweatPink Challenge with Fit Approach. Their drink mixes are seriously upping my daily Sip N Sweat game! From Protein Shakes to Energy Boost packets, IdeaShape has all the different kinds of sips covered!

I will admit that I do like my caffeine, mostly in coffee form, but when I tried the IdealBoost from IdealShape, I was pleasantly surprised! It’s pretty fruity, which works for summer time heat! This refreshing boost definitely gave me all the energy I need, and let me tell you I need it right now! With teaching yoga classes and preparing for our trip to BlogFest, this boost was not only ideal, but necessary.


(IdealShape is coming to BlogFest!)

So wherever your sweaty, summer adventures take you, whether flowing it out in a Vinyasa class at Flex & Flow or hitting the trails with our Flex & Flow Run Club, IdealShape can either fuel you for the adventures or give you that mid-sweat boost!

You can keep your IdealBoost simple and easy by just adding water, or take it a step further (still pretty easy) and turn it in to a fancy mocktail, to keep to your Portland ways of drinking all summer long!

IdealShape Portland Summer Mocktail:



  • IdealShape IdealBoost – Pineapple Strawberry Flavor
  • 6 Thin Slices of Cucumber
  • A Handful of Berries (I used blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries)
  • 12 oz water (still or sparkling if you want that bubbly)
  • Ice


  • Pour the IdealBoost packet into a cup, then add the water and stir
  • Place the rest of the ingredients into the cup, in your most fancy, mocktail way!
  • ENJOY…not too late at night though, because this will have you buzzing from the caffeine for a while!


So get your your daily Sip N Sweat on whether you upping the water game or trying out IdealShape products!
