The 27-year-old, who is the most recent cast member in Teen Mom OG, traveled to Instagram on Tuesday to share a photo of herself posing with her two-year-old daughter, Sailor Grace, and her Teami glass filled with the brand skinny tea.

Patrón: Bristol often presents his children in his Instagram posts promoting the brand's skinny tea. In his last post, he stated that drinking was a "best example" for them
"I've been drinking tea from @teamiblendsskinny every morning because it's a much healthier alternative to energy drinks, diet soda and it's 100% natural."
According to Bristol, tea has helped her avoid her cravings for sugary drinks and even her children have realized how she is controlling her sweet treats.
"I can see they are trying to get into the health kick with me," he added.
As a Teami partner, Bristol completed the publication by offering its 226,000 Instagram followers a discount code with a 20% discount.
Despite experts' warnings that detox teas are not a quick fix for losing weight, some fans took the comment section of the post to say they had used the Bristol code to test the tea for themselves.
Kylie Jenner, Demi Lovato and Blac Chyna, are among the celebrities who have shared a similar endorsement for the brand, and Bristol is not even the only Palin that promotes it.
Earlier this year, Bristol's mother, Sarah Palin, surprised many people when she shared her own publication about Teami.
Imitation game: last month, the mother of three children revealed that Sailor wanted a pink cup to match her pink Teami cup.

Although the former Republican vice presidential candidate was ridiculed mercilessly by the promotional post, she continues to join her daughter and endorsing the brand on social media as a "Teami partner".
At the time of Sarah's first Teami publication, the brand's social media manager, Carly Halvin, told CNN in an email that Sarah had been a brand customer since 2016.
"She and her family use and love Teami Blends," the person wrote. "We are very fortunate that she chose to share her Teami experience with her audience."
However, CNN reported that Halvin did not answer a question about whether Palin was paid for the publication.
Bristol and her ex-husband Dakota Meyer have two small daughters, Sailor, two, and Atlee Bay, one, and she is also the mother of a nine-year-old son, Tripp, her only child with her ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston.
The reality star is no stranger to presenting her children in her Instagram posts supporting Teami, and it seems that her eldest daughter, Sailor, is already following her mother's example.
Last month, Bristol revealed that Sailor wanted a pink mug to match with her pink Teami cup, and proudly shared photos of her little girl holding her drink like her mother.
In another publication shared in June, the mother said she drank skinny tea because she wanted to be the "best version" of herself for her daughters.

From skinny tea to fast food: Bristol is also the mother of a nine-year-old son, Tripp, his only child with his ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston. He recently treated him with a Chick-fil-A
"If any of you have followed me for some time, know that I have struggled with my weight, especially trying to lose the weight of my youngest baby," he explained.
"Honestly, the hardest part for me was going to a spinning class, or a hot yoga class, and having to look in the mirror, I hated feeling" fat "and insecure … I could discover every detail about myself" .
As in many of her other messages, Bristol stated that drinking lean tea helped her reduce her consumption of coffee and sugary drinks.
The most recent publication of the mother about the brand comes just one month after Cardi B unleashed outrage promoting Teami detox teas on Instagram.
Adena Neglia, a registered dietitian at Brown & Medina Nutrition in New York City, told DailyMail.com that the body is already able to detoxify and that using these teas as a substitute could cause irreparable damage.
Detoxification teas are essentially a mixture of herbs and leaves that supposedly help eliminate toxins, flatten your belly, increase your energy and help you sleep better. Some of them also contain vegetable caffeine, which Neglia says acts as a diuretic.
"Most of the weight you lose is body fluid, so you not only risk dehydrating, but once you return to eating normally, the weight you lost is quickly recovered," he said.
In addition, many of the tea brands say that for best results, tea should be consumed along with an exercise routine and "healthy meals."

"When these teas offer an exercise regime or drink them with lots of water, there are too many variables to determine if tea is really what is creating the health benefits," said Neglia.
Neglia also added that these teas are not regulated by the FDA and, therefore, are authorized to make any claim they wish.
In an email to CNN, Teami co-founder and CEO Adi Arezzini wrote: "All the ingredients are 100% vegetable and 100% natural. All the ingredients we use are written on the labels of our products!
Lemongrass, oolong, mint leaves, ginger root, lotus leaf, goji berries and roselle are just some of the herbs that the various Teami mixes claim to have.
"Because teas are not regulated by the FDA, the amount of herbs listed as ingredients in them could be such a minimal percentage that it's not even beneficial," Neglia said.
The dietitian said that drinking tea once in a while is not healthy, but that these short-term solutions will not translate into long-term success.
"Our body will work to detoxify, but the real way to do it is through nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables," he explained. "They should save their money and that money could go to buy more healthy foods at the grocery store or at an exercise class rate.
"Real change takes time and will not be for this tea, but for the way you feed your body and apply stress management tactics."
