3 Refreshing Summer Drinks With SunnyD ~ Successful Homemakers

Recently, while my Honey was on vacation, we took a date day trip to “the big town,” which is about an hour away. We like to go out to eat, and the choices there are a bit better than our small town offers. We do some stock up shopping whenever we get there as well. The last stop of our trip is always to Sam’s Club. With a tasty lunch in our bellies, a stop for some hobby supplies, a visit to the mall looking (in vain) for a new pair of shoes, and a stop to the outdoor store, I was quite happy to get to Sam’s Club.

The first stop we always make when at Sam’s Club is to the cafe. I love the soft pretzels with cheese sauce, and Honey likes their “larger than life” pizza slices. :)

With our bellies satisfied, we set out to finish up our shopping day. As we were shopping, something in the refrigerator case caught our eye.

SunnyD!

3 Refreshing Summer Drinks With SunnyD ~ Successful Homemakers

When our children were smaller, we bought SunnyD whenever we went to the pool or beach. Later, when we moved to Tennessee, we took SunnyD with us to the creek. SunnyD and summer just seem to go together. Since the large 24 pack of SunnyD was on rollback for only $5.38, we grabbed two cases and added them to our cart. We finished up our shopping, and with that, our date day was complete.

As our children were helping to unload the car, they saw the SunnyD right away. Thankfully, they were cold and ready to serve, so that was their treat upon completing the unloading, unpacking, putting away job.

Since we love to take a product and make it our own, we started talking about all of the fun recipes we could come up using SunnyD. We’d love to share them with you now!

The first one is super simple- SunnyD Granita. Simply pour two 6.75 oz bottles of SunnyD into a 9X13 glass baking dish. Carefully place the pan into the freezer.

After 30 minutes, pull the pan out and use a fork to scrape the beginning frozen liquid into small pieces.

Return the pan to the freezer. Wait another 15 minutes, pull it out, and do the same.

Repeat this process until the SunnyD is completely frozen. (Mine took about 90 minutes total) When ready to serve, scoop the granita into a pretty cup and enjoy!

Next up is our SunnyD Punch!

This punch is one of those “oh so easy, but oh so yummy” recipes. Begin by rinsing your punch bowl under cold water. Place it in the freezer to get good and cold (at least an hour before using.) To the punch bowl add the following: 1 pint orange sherbet, 1 2 liter bottle of lemon-lime soda, 4 6.75 oz bottles of SunnyD, sliced oranges. Stir together, serve, and enjoy!

Our most favorite SunnyD drink was the Orange Creamsicle Milkshake With SunnyD. Oh my. One of my absolute favorites is Orange Creamsicle, how about you?

I made so many that I actually had half of a shake left over. I put it in the freezer and had it later that evening. I was surprised at the result! The SunnyD in the milkshake froze, and had nice little chunks within the shake. So, feel free to make these up ahead of time and serve them at your party! They’re good right away and a few hours later!
Into a milkshake container, scoop 1 pint of ice cream and add 3/4 of a 6.75 oz SunnyD bottle.

Place the container on the magic milkshake maker (mine is from my parents’ kitchen from my youth), and whirl away, breaking up the ice cream.

Add up to 1/4 cup milk to thin to your desired consistency. Enjoy right away or stash in the freezer for a creamsicle shake later.

Since SunnyD is on rollback pricing until August, stop by your local Sam’s Club and pick up a pack. We found ours in the refrigerated section, but you may find yours on an end cap with a big display.

 I’d love to hear how you have fun with SunnyD!

Sensible Snacking with Sensible Portions!

Snacking can be a downfall for any healthy eating program. For me, I tend to crave crunchy foods for snacking. A quick look around the grocery store shelves reveals a severe lack of convenient, yet better for you choices.  My family and I had the pleasure of trying Sensible Portions Puffs last week. I can…
