When the weather's warm, it's almost too easy to rely on ice cream, soda, popsicles and other frosty sweets for refreshment. However, there are delicious ways to cool off without making the hope of a trim waistline melt away.

For instance, you can eat something sweet, feel refreshed and still get your recommended five fruits and veggies a day with the recipes below.
