Banana Slush Punch
- 6 cups boiling water
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 small can orange juice concentrate
- 1 small can lemonade concentrate
- 1 quart pineapple juice
- 5 mashed bananas
- 3 + 2 Liters of Lemon-lime soda (Sprite, Sierra Mist, 7-UP, etc)
In a large pot bring water and sugar to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and add both juice concentrates, pineapple juice, and mashed bananas. Let cool. This makes the Pour (or ladle) the cooled mixture into ziplock bags, or tupperware containers that can go in the freezer. (Thin, rectangular shapes are best, so the mixture can freeze more evenly.) The mixture should be divided equally between at least 3 containers/ bags. Put bags or containers in freezer. (Lay bags flat for best freezing.)
About 30 minutes before serving remove a bag or container from the freezer and allow to thaw slightly.
About 5 minutes before serving break the frozen mixture into chunks using the utensil of your choice. (Fork, wooden spoon, potato masher, ice pick, etc.) Place chunks in serving pitcher and mash until no big chunks remain.
Add soda to dilute the punch concentrate. You can decide how much punch/ soda ratio you like. I usually like 1/6 of the total recipe (or 1/2 of one ziplock bag when concentrate is divided equally among 3 bags) per 2 liter of soda.
Stir together and serve while still slushy.
