Survive the Hottest Season with These Healthy Summer Drinks

Instead of reaching for a soda when the weather heats up, try one of these healthy cool drinks instead! Try these refreshing and delicious recipes for a Honeydew Lime Cooler, Cherry Smash, and Peachy Green Teas. 

Honeydew Lime Cooler
1 small honeydew melon, seeded and cut into one-inch cubes
1/2 cup seedless red grapes
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup honey
2 cups seltzer water

Place the cubed melon and grapes into the freezer for about an hour. In a blender, combine the frozen melon and grapes with the lime juice and honey. Process until smooth. Fill glasses until half full and then top off with the seltzer water. Stir and serve immediately.

Cherry Smash
1 cup fresh or frozen cherries, pits removed
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
4 teaspoons sugar
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 cups seltzer water

Divide the cherries, mint leaves, and sugar into four glasses. Mash these ingredients together with a wooden spoon or muddler. Stir in the lime juice and fill each glass with ice. Top off with the seltzer and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately.

Peachy Green Tea
6 green tea bags
6 cups cold water
2 peaches, pitted and sliced
Honey to taste

Place the tea bags into a large pitcher. Put the sliced peaches in a saucepan and add the water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for about three minutes. Pour the water and the peaches over the tea bags in the pitcher. Let steep for about 10 minutes and then stir in the honey to taste. Allow the tea to cool and then refrigerate until thoroughly cooled. To serve, spoon a few peaches from the pitcher into each glass and top with the tea.
