I first tried this refreshing beverage - with its tasty combination of citrus juices and mashed banana - at a church reception. It's perfect for serving at birthday parties, wedding showers, anniversary dinners and barbecues. -Hollis Mattson, Brush Prairie, Washington

"I love this recipe from my childhood. But I wonder if the calorie count is correct. I am making this for church next week and will skip the sugar (too much already in all those fruit concentrates for the diabetics)

Thanks for reminding me of this long time favorite."
