Celebrate summer with a freezy-good blended cocktail! Here are two brand-new, completely delicious, super-refreshing beverage recipes. (P.S. These are only for those of the legal drinking age. Underage HGers: Check out this fruity mojito mocktail!)

Green Grape Frojitos

1/2 of recipe (about 16 oz.): 192 calories, <0.5g fat, 4mg sodium, 26g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 18g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7*

Breakout beverage alert! Frozen grapes take center stage in this almost-too-good-to-be-true drink. (Pssst... We like to keep a stash of grapes in the freezer for summer snacking!)

10 mint leaves
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda or Truvia)
2 limes, quartered, for a total of 8 wedges
1 1/2 cups green grapes, frozen
3 oz. rum
1 1/2 cups crushed ice or 8 - 12 ice cubes

Evenly divide mint, sweetener, and half of the lime wedges between 2 glasses (2 lime wedges per glass). Muddle (a.k.a. mash) the contents of each glass.

To a blender, add the frozen grapes, rum, ice, and 2 tbsp. water. Squeeze the juice from the remaining lime wedges into the blender. Discard these wedges.

Blend at high speed until smooth. (If needed, turn off the blender, stir, and blend again.)  

Transfer grape mixture to the glasses, and stir well. Drink up and be refreshed!


Watermelon Margaritas

1/2 of recipe (about 16 oz.): 138 calories, <0.5g fat, 2mg sodium, 10.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 0.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

The OOHs and AAHs heard when you serve up a round of these 'ritas may be loud enough to drown out the sound of the blender. Yup, they're THAT good.

1 1/2 cups cubed seedless or seeded watermelon
3 oz. tequila
1 tbsp. lime juice
3 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda or Truvia)
2 cups crushed ice or 10 - 16 ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour, sip, and enjoy!
