Make This Green Punch In Minutes With 5 Easy Ingredients!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In the spirit of the holiday I have worn a green shirt and found this easy and quick punch recipe at Bakespace.com. As it’s also March Break at many schools, the kids will love helping you make this sweet drink that consists of pineapple juice, lime juice and lime sherbert. Sherbert was always my favourite cold treat as a kid. A touch of green food colouring makes this drink festive whether you stay home with the kids or are throwing a party. Either way, enjoy your day…and the punch!

Kids Can Assemble These Fun Treats in 15 Minutes!
I’ve loved bananas my whole life. Probably because they are sweet and fun to eat, but also because of my love of monkeys. I’m guessing that there’s lots of kids out there who feel the same way I did…and still do. And even for those children who aren’t big banana fans yet, I might have found a recipe to change that! KraftCanada.com has a great banana dessert recipe that’s easy and quick, and perfect for kids to make. It’s called Frozen Banana Treats and not only is the banana dipped in chocolate, but it’s also coated in any topping of your choice. You can dip your bananas in things like nuts, cereal, granola, even cookie bits. It’s easy to be creative with this easy recipe that kids will love! One tip that is posted on the website recommends adding caramel to the chocolate mix for a different flavor, and also melting the chocolate on the unfrozen banana, then freezing the completed treat (supposedly it’s easier to apply the chocolate this way). Well, be creative, try different methods and please let me know what works best for you. Have fun!
