Summer temperatures are skyrocketing way past scorching, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer through with sweat clinging to your brow. Beat the heat—and have fun, too—with some of our favorite refreshing, thirst-quenching and downright delicious recipes.

Stay cool with Peaches & Cream Frozen Yogurt. Five ingredients are all it takes to make homemade frozen yogurt filled with fresh peaches. It’s so easy to make at home, how can you resist?

While you’re at it, let the kids have some fun, too. Chocolate Chip Waffles With Strawberry Ice Cream take no time at all, or whip up a Frozen Creamsicle Pie that will have your whole family clamoring for seconds.

Take a load off with lightened-up pina coladas — large glasses of this coconut cocktail can often run you 650 calories or more thanks to an ingredient called cream of coconut. Keep yours light and refreshing by shrinking the portions of coconut and rum, and make substitutions to add extra coconut flavor.

Want something with a little more sustenance? Try a summer salad. Whether you like it savory or sweet, we’ve got a recipe that’s just right.

Take a walk on the wild (but healthy!) side with Cantaloupe Soup. Prosciutto, cantaloupe, apple juice, chives and a dash of seasoning come together for a meal so light and refreshing you won’t even notice the humidity radiating off of the pavement outside.
