Lemon cream punch

When we ran out of sherbet at my daughter's party, we had some lemonade leftover as well as some sprite and vanilla ice cream.  My mother-in-law added them to the punch bowl and everyone agreed is was amazing!  I wish I had actual quantities to write down, but I don't.  I just wanted to add it to the blog so we can remember to try it again soon.

I would guess:
1 1/2 cups lemonade
1 1/2 cups sprite
1 pint ice cream

Sherbet punch

My daughter requested this punch for her birthday and it was a quick and delicious punch!  Everyone loved it!


  • 1 tub of lime sherbet
  • 1 2-liter Sprite
  1. Grab a punch bowl. 
  2. Spoon the sherbet into the punch bowl.
  3. Pour the Sprite over the sherbet and stir.
  4. Enjoy!

Quick and Easy Vanilla Custard

When my girls do swim team in the summer, they are always hungry and I try to find nutrient dense recipes to fill them up.  This custard is both delicious and healthy.

  1. Whisk together arrowroot and gelatin in a small bowl.
  2. Into a medium saucepan, pour milk, egg yolks, maple syrup, and sea salt.
  3. Sprinkle the arrowroot mixture over its surface, and whisk again to combine.
  4. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring CONSTANTLY until the pudding begins to thicken. It will start to steam first, which is your sign that the custard is almost done.
  5. Once thickened, remove immediately from the heat.
