This Watermelon Strawberry Punch is a makeover of Hawaiian Punch. It gets its bright pink color naturally from the season’s freshest watermelon and strawberries versus the artificial colors found in factories.
When I was a kid, I remember one kind of Hawaiian Punch, and it was bright red. Today, there are 16 kinds out there—everything from Aloha Morning and Lemon Berry Squeeze to Green Berry Rush.
High fructose corn syrup tops the list of ingredients followed by a rainbow of artificial colors: Yellow 5, Blue 1, Red 40, and Yellow 6. No thank you!
When it comes to summertime thirst quenchers, I prefer beverages made simply with ingredients naturally found in nature.
I serve on ice to make this makeover extra refreshing for summer. You can also freeze the mixture into individual fruit pops.
Four simple ingredients is all you’ll need for our Hawaiian Punch makeover: Watermelon, strawberries, lime juice, and agave nectar.
I don’t know too many kids (or adults) who could resist this naturally nutritious drink 🙂
