10 Sweet Summer Drinks to Cool You Off

Sitting outside in the sweltering heat may not be any fun, but there are ways to make it tolerable. There's nothing like like a sweet, refreshing summer beverage to keep you cooled off on the hottest of summer days! If you're tired of the same old lemonade and ice tea recipe, try any of these stellar summer sippers!

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.
