Banana Slush Punch


After getting a bit burnt out on the standard cranberry juice and pineapple punches, I tried this recipe for Banana Slush Punch. It was simply fantastic. The original recipe makes a LOT so I cut this in half. Many thanks to Macaroni & Cheesecake for this recipe.

Plan ahead as it needs to freeze overnight. Enjoy!


Banana Slush Punch
Makes about 2.5-3 gallons.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 cups water
  • 1-46 oz. can pineapple juice
  • 46 oz. orange juice
  • 5 fresh bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Three 2 liters ginger ale

Directions:

  1. In medium saucepan, add sugar and water. Bring to boil and stir until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl, combine pineapple juice, orange juice, mashed bananas & lemon juice. Add sugar syrup, once cooled, and stir well. Divide evenly into three 6 cup freezer containers (you may have a little left over) leaving 1/2 inch at the top for expansion. Freeze containers overnight.
  3. About one hour prior to serving, dump the contents of one frozen container into your punch bowl. Pour one 2 liter over the frozen banana mixture.
  4. You will use one 2 liter per frozen container.
