READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by twissis

My brother sent me an invite to join him at the Grandparents.com website & I get periodic emails from them on the art of grandparenting. The most recent email had a fun article on kid-friendly mocktails & suggested that kids should have spec beverages for their parties & also tasty + festive beverages to enjoy while their elders drink cocktails on spec occasions & holidays. Per the intro, “Shirley Temple, take a bow & step aside. Some new entertainers have taken center stage. The effervescent, sometimes sparkly, always refreshing & totally non-alcoholic mocktails are beverages that kids & partygoers of all ages will enjoy.” I am entering the recipes in pairs, groups or individually based on # of servings. *Cheers* !

I made #5 Monkey Jungle juice and it was great. I sliced my banana and then put it in a ziploc in the freezer overnight. With the ice cream and the frozen banana it made it nice and frothy and thick (did add an extra splash of milk for DSs). Will have to make this again! Made for Week 9 Football Pool win 2010.
