Watching your weight doesn’t have to sentence you to a life of water and diet drinks. You can still keep this summer sweet without a lot of extra sugar and calories. Quench your thirst with these tasty suggestions from TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), the nonprofit weight-loss support organization.

1. Add orange, lemon, or cucumber slices to sparkling water.

2. Cut your usual glass of lemonade in half and add sugar-free iced tea.

3. Freeze blueberries or raspberries in ice trays with water, and add them to your next summer drink.

4. Chill out by mixing seedless watermelon, cranberry juice, and ice cubes in a blender. Serve with a slice of lime.

5. Steep a peach tea bag in boiling water, chill, and serve with sliced orange.

6. Add a splash of pineapple juice to sparkling water, and garnish with pineapple wedges and fresh mint leaves.
