Beetle Juice Recipe

Two glasses of Beetle Juice on a tray
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cups ice
  • 2 lemons, fresh
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup fresh frozen mixed berry medley
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon raspberry extract
  • Triple berry seltzer
  • Raspberry sherbet (optional)

Instructions

Cut the lemons in half. Squeeze the lemon juice from the lemons.

Note: If you have a citrus juicer simply squeeze the juice right into a blender pitcher. If you have to squeeze by hand, squeeze the juice into a glass or bowl first so that you can remove any seeds with a spoon before adding the juice to the blender.

Add the ice, lemon juice, water, honey, frozen mixed berry medley and extracts into the blender. Blend the ingredients together well.

Depending on the size of the glass, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the triple berry seltzer to add fizz to the mix. Fill the rest of the glass with the blended fruit mixture.

Optional: Add a scoop of raspberry sherbet on top.

The kids!  Remember there are always valuable lessons to learn in every recipe.  Here are a few with Beetle Juice;

  • Blending
  • Blender safety
  • Measuring ingredients
  • Following Directions
  • Extracting juice from lemons
  • Exploring healthier alternatives

The Brains!  If you want to add a little dessert style fun add sherbet brains to the mix.  If you want to keep it healthier, freeze some of the beetle juice without the seltzer in ice molds of either brains or bugs and add them to your finished drink before serving.

More Healthy Halloween Options:  Check out my homemade spinach chips in the form of a witch hat made out of spinach wraps.  I serve these with a homemade pico de gallo that orange because I’m using orange bell peppers and orange heirloom tomatoes as the base.  Follow the link to this yumminess.
