Lemonade is a classic summer beverage and you will be hard-pushed to find anything more refreshing than a watermelon so you can see how this is such a fantastic summer drink.

You can then stir in a bottle of soda and pour it back into the empty watermelon before topping with ice, lime slices and mint.
2. Sunshine Smoothie
This low-fat smoothie is the perfect way to start the day and to get the kids enjoying fruit and veg. The unique but tantalizing beverage is made with 500ml of carrot juice, 200g of pineapple (fresh or canned), 2 bananas cut into chunks, a small piece of ginger, the juice from 1 lime and 20g of cashew nuts. You simply put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until it reaches a smooth consistency – simple yet delicious.
3. Smoothie Jellies with Ice Cream
