Honey Banana Punch Recipe

Honey Banana Punch Recipe

Here's a great punch recipe I got from a beekeeper's association. The mix of banana, pineapple and citrus gives it a light sunny flavor. With its pretty honey color, it makes an elegant beverage for weddings and other special events.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + freezing YIELD:30 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 5 ripe bananas, cut into chunks
  • 1 can (46 ounces) pineapple juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup sweetened lemonade drink mix
  • 4 liters lemon-lime soda, chilled

Directions

  • 1. In a blender, combine orange juice concentrate and bananas; cover and process until smooth.
  • 2. Pour into a large bowl; add the pineapple juice, water, honey, sugar and soft drink mix. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour into two 2-qt. freezer containers. Cover and freeze until mixture is slushy.
  • 3. To serve, transfer each portion of fruit slush to a large pitcher. Add 2 liters of soda to each pitcher; stir to blend. Yield: 7-1/2 gallons (30 1-cup servings).
