5 Summer Drinks to Keep You Cool

  • 2 of 6

honeydew melon

1. Melon Puree

This is a drink I had on a trip to Jamaica. It’s incredibly refreshing and simple to make. Melons are a great source of vitamin C, and when you puree instead of juicing, you retain all of that healthy fiber. Here’s how to make your own melon puree:

  1. Slice up a a honeydew melon or cantaloupe into chunks.
  2. Blend until smooth, adding a bit of water to thin things out if necessary.
  3. Chill your puree before serving for extra cooling benefits.

You could probably make this with watermelon or any other sweet melon, but I’ve only tried honeydew and cantaloupe.
