Fruit Mocktail/Lemonade

Fruit Mocktail/Lemonade

Its hard to make my kids eat or drink once if they say no, its amazing how they taste and palette changes everyday, one day its their best favorite food in the whole world and the next day they refuse to even look at it. one day we buy Pears and the next day they refuse to eat and such is the case that made me invent this recipe. Lemonade is always a favorite so I mixed in remaining fruits like green Apple, Pear and Banana and wallah a fruit lemonade/mocktail was invented.I found this to be a great way to mask the fruit.

1/2 can of frozen lemonade concentrate
fruits of your choice I used ( Green apple and Golden Pears)
1 cup of Ice cubes
and Banana's for Garnish.

1. Cut Pears and Apples into cubes
2. Puree Pears, Apples,ice cubes and Lemonade concentrate in a blender
3. to the above add a 2 cups of water and strain through a fine sieve
4. Add chopped Banana's as topping and serve

Kids love it and I got my way to giving them fruit. This entry goes to dear Raaga for AFAM this months theme being Pears.
