Banana Punch Recipe

  • 6 cups water
  • 4 cups white sugar
  • 5 bananas
  • 1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice
  • 4 (6 ounce) cans frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 2 (6 ounce) cans frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 2 1/2 (2 liter) bottles lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage (such as 7-Up®)
  • 2 oranges, sliced for garnish
  1. Combine water and sugar in a large pot; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Cool in the refrigerator.
  2. Put 1 banana and about 1 cup pineapple juice in a blender; blend until smooth. Repeat until all bananas are pureed into pineapple juice; stir into the pot with the simple syrup. Add orange juice concentrate and lemonade concentrate to the pot; stir. Divide the mixture into smaller containers and freeze until mostly solid.
  3. Put frozen mixture into a large punch bowl. Thaw until slushy, but stirrable. Stir lemon-lime carbonated beverage into the punch bowl. Garnish with orange slices.
