When temperatures rise, reach for a thirst-quenching, rehydrating smoothie. Substituting water for dairy and non-dairy milks and sugary juices is a smart, economical way to ensure that you are drinking enough water to combat the summer’s heat. You can also try replacing the liquid in your favorite smoothie with healthy coconut water.
Fruits with high water content - think grapes and melons - are another plus in the hydration equation. And don’t forget veggies: greens and cucumbers boast lots of water. Try the recipes below to boost your hydration—they’re perfect by the pool, after a workout, or alongside for yard work.
