 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:

  Slice up a a honeydew melon or cantaloupe into chunks.

  Blend until smooth, adding a bit of water to thin things out if necessary.

  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.

  1、蜜瓜/香瓜泥

  这种饮料是我在去牙买加的旅行中喝到的,非常提神爽口并且很容易做。瓜类富含维他命C,并且如果你做成瓜泥而不是榨成瓜汁,你就能保留下所有的健康价值高的植物纤维成分。以下是制作步骤:

  (1)把蜜瓜或美国香瓜切成块。

  (2)搅拌均匀,若有需要可以加水稀释。

  (3)饮用前先冷藏。

  当然你也可以用西瓜或甜瓜做这道饮品,不过我只试过用蜜瓜和美国香瓜做



  2. Cucumber Mint Water

  It might sound like a strange combination, but cold water with a couple of slices of cucumber and a sprig of mint is a delicious, cooling summer drink. You can serve this up one glass at a time or put together a whole pitcher to keep in the fridge. Here’s how to make an eight-serving batch of cucumber mint water:

  Combine a half of a sliced cucumber and 1/2 cup of coarsely chopped mint in a four quart pitcher.

  Top the pitcher off with 16 cups of water and chill until you’re ready to serve.

  Bonus points if you grow your own mint or cucumbers to whip up this beverage!

  2、黄瓜薄荷饮

  听起来这搭配有点怪,但这加了几片黄瓜、一点薄荷的冰水还真是样美味清凉的夏日饮品。你可以一次做一杯,也可以做一整罐然后放入冰箱保存。以下是做法:

  (1)取半杯粗略切碎的薄荷和半条切片的黄瓜,放在约四品脱(约2000ml)的罐子里。

  (2)加上16杯水,搅匀即可。

  如果有自家种的薄荷或黄瓜就再好不过了!


  3. Ginger Cooler

  A spicy drink might seem counter-intuitive when temperatures heat up, but spicy foods actually help your body regulate its temperature. This ginger cooler will do the trick nicely!

  1/4c chopped ginger

  1/2c chopped mint leaves

  juice of one lime

  6 cups sparking water

  sweetener of your choice, to taste

  Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and serve chilled. You can strain this drink, if you don’t like the texture of the ginger and mint bits, but I prefer mine whole.

  3、姜味饮料

  大热天喝辣味饮料听起来挺反常的,但辣味食物的确有助人体调节体温——姜味饮料就有这样的良好功效。

  ·1/4杯切碎的姜

  ·1/2杯切碎的薄荷叶

  ·一只酸橙榨出的果汁

  ·6杯苏打水

  ·依据个人口味添加的甜味剂

  把上述食材用搅拌器搅拌好后冷藏。如果不喜欢姜和薄荷叶,可以把它们过滤掉,但我个人喜欢保留它们。


  4. Iced Green Tea with Lemon and Mint

  Avoid heating up the house with the stove and brew your tea in the sun instead! This takes a bit of planning, but there’s not a lot of actual work involved.

  15 bags of organic green tea

  1 gallon of water

  1/2c whole fresh mint leaves

  juice of 2 lemons

  sweetener of your choice, to taste

  Combine the tea bags, water, and mint in a clean, gallon-sized container and set it out in the sun for 3-4 hours, depending on how dark you like your tea.

  Remove the tea bags and add the lemon juice and sweeten, if you like.

  Chill and serve over ice.

  4、柠檬薄荷冰绿茶

  为避免在室内生炉子让屋内很热,你可以到户外,在太阳底下煮茶的!这一步需要点计划,但实际并不麻烦。

  ·15茶袋有机绿茶

  ·1加仑(3.7升)水

  ·1/2杯新鲜薄荷叶

  ·两个柠檬的果汁

  ·依据个人口味添加的甜味剂

  把茶袋、水和薄荷叶放在一个干净的1加仑装容器里,然后在太阳底下放3-4个小时——放多久依赖于你希望你的茶有多浓。

  把茶袋拿走,加上柠檬汁和甜味剂(如果你喜欢)。

  冷藏,加冰块饮用。


  5. Coconut Water

  Coconut water is loaded with health benefits. It’s rich in electrolytes and potassium, which makes it perfect for replenishing your body after exposure to the summer heat. Of course, it’s not so easy for most of us to find a young, green coconut so that we can drink from it directly like in the photo above. Luckily, you can find cans or boxes of coconut water at most natural food stores.

  Unlike its richer cousin coconut milk, coconut water is low in fat and calories. You can drink your coconut water chilled on its own or add a squeeze of lime to brighten it up. It’s also great for adding a tropical twist to your morning smoothie!

  5、椰子汁

  椰子汁富含电解质和钾——有利于给暑热中的人体补充体能,对健康很有好处。当然了,对我们大多数人来说要找到一棵幼嫩的椰子树然后像照片里的人一样直接大喝椰汁是不容易的。好在你可以在大多数的天然食物商店里找到罐装或盒装的椰子汁。

  和它的“近亲”椰奶不同,椰子汁低脂肪、低卡路里。你可以直接冷藏饮用,也可加一点酸橙汁给它调味。在你的醒晨椰汁上加上点Tropical Twist口香糖也是不错的!
