Iced apricot & pomegranate smoothie

Creamy smooth yogurt drinks are healthy and refreshing, especially when well iced. All the family will love them at any time of day.

* Serves 2

  • 1 cup plain or peach yogurt
  • 2 cups chopped and pitted ripe apricots
  • 2 to 3 tbsp. clear honey
  • a few ice cubes
  • 1/2 pomegranate, broken up into seeds and white pith removed

Watermelon and strawberry slush

For a quick and refreshing summer ice or drink, a slush is great — fresh and fruity for the kids, alcoholic for the adults. If you want to serve it like an ice cone, pile up some crushed ice in a glass and pour the blended ingredients over the ice.

* Serves 1

  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1 cup hulled and halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup watermelon flesh (seeds removed)
  • 2 to 3 tbsp. strawberry syrup or Fraise liqueur
  • slices of fresh fruit, to garnish

  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
  • 4 tbsp. clear honey, plus more to taste
  • freshly grated nutmeg
