Cranberry-Orange Punch!

I have a great non-alcoholic beverage! It is so flavorful and easy to make.
Hopefully you have a punch bowl? I use my Mom’s to make this. I do believe last year someone decided to spike it and normally I’d be okay with that but there were 12 young children in the home.

So, I made another punch in its place for them. Luckily, I caught it, I shudder to think otherwise.

On to the recipe.

2 gallons Cranberry juice (I use Ocean Spray), 1 liter Lemon-Lime soda, 2 oranges (zest first then slice oranges), 2 cups Pure Orange Juice, stir well, add ice cubes and enjoy! And be sure to watch those adults who may spike it!!!

For the children last year (as the substitution), I made a rainbow Sherbet Punch for them and watched! HeHe.

Florida’s Orange Zinger Tea

This is such a refreshing easy non-alcoholic beverage for the hot, steamy months. I make it year round.

It will serve 4-Prep time is a matter of minutes then chill for one hour. Easy.

You’ll need 2 oranges for zests and juices, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, 4 single serve orange zinger tea bags, 4 cups of water to boil and steep tea bags in. A large pitcher to add all ingredients and stir, chill in refrigerator, then serve in tall glasses over ice cubes.

Super flavorful and easy to make ahead. Hope you enjoy!

Lemon Tart Smoothie

This new smoothie will have you jumping for joy! Tart, creamy, sweet, delicious. You’ll need 2 whole lemons washed, zests and juices, 1 cup whole milk, 1/2 cup frozen vanilla yogurt (near the ice cream section in the grocery store). Blend all ingredients for a few minutes on high in your blender.

Pour into a chilled glass and enjoy!!! It is my new favorite.

In closing have a great day and I wish you Good Health.
