Sip It

It is amazing how much good nutrition you can sneak into a drink. In fact, a single glass of 100 percent juice supplies one of the recommended five daily servings of fruit or vegetables. Offer the drinks in mugs, cartoon glasses or wine glasses. Do not forget the crazy straws.

BANANA SCREAM

3 bananas (the riper the banana, the sweeter the shake)
2 tbsp. nonfat milk Peel the bananas, cut in half width-wise, wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze until firm. Place in a blender,
add milk and puree until creamy. Serves 4.

JUNGLE JUICE

1 1/2 cups nonfat milk
1/2 cup grape juice
1 banana, sliced Put milk, juice and banana in a blender and mix until smooth. For more vibrant color, add a few drops of purple food coloring. Serves 2.

MAKE-A-SHAKE

Combine two favorite drinks to create a refreshing new taste. Try grape juice and orange juice, strawberry nectar and pineapple juice, lemonade and soda water, or chocolate milk and 2 teaspoons of melted smooth peanut butter. For a frosty drink, add ice and blend.
