Serve a batch of fun kid-friendly beverages at your little one's next birthday party or poolside gathering.
Strawberry-Raspberry SodaServe strawberry shortcake in a glass. Layer strawberry-sour cream ice cream with fresh strawberries, then add a sugar mix and club soda (for fun fizzies). Keep spoons handy to catch syrupy drips.
Hot Fudge Sundae ShakeFill their glasses with everything that makes a sundae so delicious: vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, caramel syrup, whipped cream, brownies, and cherries.
Lemon Soda FloatTry a twist on the traditional Coke or root beer float by combining lemon soda, such as San Pellegrino Limonata or Newman's Own Sparkling Lemonade, with creamy vanilla ice cream.
Triple Berry FreezeFrozen berries, lemon sorbet, and a little honey make this naturally sweet beverage a favorite with kids. Sparkling water adds a light hint of fizz to the rich drink.
Chocolate FizzThis chocolatey drink mimics popular mocha drinks, but without the shot of espresso. Mix the main ingredients, then let kids chill the concoction with ice in cocktail shakers.
Homemade Orange SodaPump up the flavor of lemon-lime soda with thawed orange juice concentrate. Serve over ice for a fizzy beverage packed with citrus tang.
Téo's PunchServe this punch when you're having a neighborhood gathering. Kids love the sweet and tart combo of juices, and it easily upgrades to an adults-only beverage for parents by adding a hit of rum.
White Grape-and-Orange CoolerWhite grape juice has always been a kid-friendly favorite. Make their dinner beverage special by adding orange juice, ginger ale, and a little sugar. Garnish with citrus slices to dress it up.
Banana-Peach ShakeFresh peaches, bananas, milk, and frozen yogurt make this smooth, creamy, fruity shake a summertime favorite for little kids and big kids alike.
Triple Chocolate SlushWhat child wouldn't love this uber-chocolately slush topped with sweet whipped cream? (Except maybe the chocolate-haters.) But moms, don't worry: the ice cuts down this slush's richness, making it lighter than a traditional milk shake.
Lime FizzThis fizzy, lime-flavored drink is the perfect kids' cool-me-down on hot summer afternoons after a day at the ballpark, in the yard, or bking with friends.
Sunshine SmoothieSmoothies are such a fantastic way to sneak fruit into little ones' diets. This one gets its cheerful color from mango, apricots, nectarine, cantaloupe, and lemon yogurt.
Watermelon CoolersPair the sweetness of frozen watermelon cubes with the spicy bite of ginger ale and the tart flavor of limeade for this refreshing, icy sipper.
