Normally for a birthday party or something of that nature I make Banana Punch. Banana punch was the go to recipe when I was growing up for parties, showers, etc. But this year for Alexis’ birthday party I had a bunch of lemons and strawberries on hand, and in the spirit of not buying more stuff I decided to make something different and the results were stellar! You could even make this an adult punch by adding a little rum if you liked…The possibilities are endless! ;o)
What You’ll Need:
6 cups of frozen strawberries
The juice of 12-14 lemons
4 cups of organic cane sugar
Place frozen berries in batches of about a cup into a blender and blend until completely chopped. A few larger pieces here and there are not a big deal. Pour into a very large bowl. (Note: It would be MUCH easier in a food processor than a blender, but sadly I still haven’t replaced my processor that died horribly. If you have a food processor then by all means use it instead! It will make the process MUCH easier and if you’re using a food processor you don’t even have to freeze the strawberries!)
Stir in lemon juice and sugar and let sit until sugar dissolves. Place into small airtight containers and freeze until solid.
Thirty minutes before you want to serve pull out one or two of the frozen containers and let thaw a bit. Place the still slightly frozen mixture into a punch bowl and cover with seltzer water and then serve.
Notes: You could do this with blueberries or peaches or pineapple or any other type of fruit that you like!
