10 Sweet Summer Drinks to Cool You Off
Italian Summer Drink - My dad would make this by hand, and now with blenders it takes only minutes. The taste is very refreshing and not too sweet. It looks beautiful with a leaf of mint.
Dulche De Leche Frappé - Nothing beats an ice cold frappé - unless it's flavored with coffee and dulce de leche ice cream.
Sparkling Ginger Mint Lemonade - A classic summertime drink is given a refreshing twist with the addition of mint and ginger. On its own or as a cocktail with vodka, this lemonade is sure to quench your thirst on even the hottest of summer days.
Fruit Iced Tea - Cloves, cinnamon sticks and fruit nectar make this is a refreshing summer beverage without all the calories.
Peanut Butter and Banana Milkshake - Alarmed by the hidden calories and fat in some ice cream chains treats (one milkshake has 2000 calories and over 130 grams of fat!), I created this light version. The Svelte Gourmet PB&B Milkshake is delicious at only 250 calories!
Strawberry Lemonade - The perfect thirst-quencher for a perfect summer day.
Thai Iced Coffee - Here's a sweet twist on iced coffee. The condensed milk makes the drink a little thick, but you could thin it with more coffee or some regular milk.
Summer Tea Cooler - The pineapple is an unexpected addition to the iced tea, but certainly a good one.
Orange Smoothie - This smooth and creamy orange smoothie is a wonderful, low-fat dessert that can be enjoyed anytime!
Watermelon Granita - This refreshing, ice dessert is thick enough to be eaten out of bowls, or can be made into a drink.
