Quick Punch

My husband, Joe, and I made this every New Year’s Eve while our boys, Joseph and John, were growing up.  We still make it occasionally when we’re in a party mood.  It’s always a big hit with guests!

Quick Punch

1 quart Sherbet (orange, raspberry, or rainbow work well)
1 2-liter bottle of Sprite or 7-Up
1 25-oz. bottle of Sparkling Apple Juice
1 container frozen Strawberries (slightly thawed)

Put sherbet in punch bowl.  Add soda, pouring slowly down side of bowl.

Add frozen strawberries and sparkling juice.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

I created this simple smoothie recipe because I love Ovaltine and TCBY Yogurt.  It’s wholesome and refreshing.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

1 cup Milk (skim or 1%)
½ cup TCBY Frozen Yogurt (any flavor)
½ Banana
1 cup Strawberries (frozen)
2 tablespoons Ovaltine Chocolate Mix

Combine all ingredients in a blender.

Makes approximately 2 servings.

Note:  You can add a few ice cubes to this if you’d like an icier taste.  Use a whole banana, if you like, and add more Ovaltine if you prefer a more chocolate taste.  I like to use the chocolate & vanilla combo TCBY for this, but peanut butter and other flavored yogurts work well, too.  Be creative!
