We have talked before about making smoothies.  There are a lot of options:  with or without dairy (we often add creamer as well — you can use regular, soy, almond or coconut milk) ; use your favorite fruit; add some whey protein if you want.  Here is a great recipe for those who cannot tolerate dairy or want dairy free.  Search the net for thousands of smoothie recipes.  Great for beating the heat and getting healthy nutrition!
