How to Make light summer drinks


  1. Frosty Mochas

    1 1/2 cups 2% or skim milk
    1/3 cup chocolate syrup
    2 tablespoons instant coffee
    3 1/2 cups ice cubes

    In a blender, place all ingredients except and blend on medium speed until well mixed. Add ice cubes a few at a time, blending after each addition until smooth. Pour into 4 glasses. Serve immediately.

    Notes: I included this recipe for those that might not have brewed coffee on hand.
  2. Caramel Iced Latte

    1 1/2 cups strong coffee
    2 cups almond milk or vanilla soy milk
    2 teaspoons caramel fat-free topping
    Ice cubes, as desired

    Stir together coffee and milk. Drizzle topping into 2 large glasses. Fill glasses with ice cubes. Pour milk mixture over ice
  3. Quick Frappé For One

    1/2 cup of milk
    2 Tablespoons Hershey's chocolate syrup
    1 Tablespoon of granulated sugar
    1/2 cup coffee, cooled (I used leftover)
    1 cup ice (4-5 cubes)

    Add all the ingredients to the blender and process until all is mixed and frothy. The ice cubes can be a little chunky if you wish.

    Notes: I use low fat chocolate milk sometimes, and skip the sugar, which is really good too. This makes one bigger glass, and is SO good on a hot day.
  4. Berry Tea Cooler

    2 cups boiling water
    2 strawberry or blueberry tea bags
    4 cups Diet Cherry 7-Up
    Lime or lemon slices for garnish

    Pour the water over the tea bags and brew for 10 minutes or so. Cool. Combine the tea and 7-Up in large pitcher. Serve tea over ice.

    Notes: I used strawberry flavored black tea, but you can use any variety you wish.
  5. Lemonade Iced Tea for a Crowd

    2 cans (12 ounces each) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
    1 cup boiling water
    4 tea bags, black, green or fruit flavored
    3 quarts cold water

    Make lemonade as directed on cans in a punch bowl or large beverage jar. Pour the cup of boiling water over the tea bags and brew for 5-10 minutes, then cool. Stir in the cold water and the brewed tea with the lemonade. Serve over ice.
