3 Party Drinks (Non-Alcoholic)

This week I decided to explore two different smoothie recipes and a punch recipe that I felt would be great for any get-together!

Based on “Slushy Punch” from: Better Homes and Gardens Celebrating the Promise

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Freeze: overnight

Stand: 20 minutes

Makes: 6 glasses

You will need:

Plastic wrap

¾ cup unsweetened pineapple juice

½ of a medium ripe banana (peeled and cut up)

¼ cup sugar

1.5 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate (thawed)

½ tablespoon lemon juice

2/3 cup water

18 ounces Sprite (chilled)

In a blender, combine the pineapple juice, banana, sugar, thawed orange juice concentrate, and lemon juice.

Blend until smooth.

Stir in the water.

Pour into a glass baking dish and cover with plastic wrap.

Freeze overnight.

To serve, let mixture stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.

To form a slush, scrape a large spoon across the frozen mixture and spoon into a punch bowl.

Slowly pour the Sprite down the side of the bowl and stir gently to mix.

Enjoy!
