Purim Party Punch for Kids

This party punch makes a fun and tasty non-alcoholic addition to a Purim party. Kids love it because the sherbet foams and melts into the fruit punch, creating creamy caps of deliciousness on top of the punch bowl. It’s a pretty celebratory punch that will serve a large gathering. Double the recipe for a big punch bowl.

This punch includes dairy sherbet, but you can easily sub a pareve non-dairy ice cream or sorbet if you’re serving a meat meal and want to keep things kosher (or if you are serving somebody who is dairy intolerant). If you’re using a non-dairy frozen dessert, choose either a vanilla or fruit flavor (strawberry, orange, lime, pineapple).

  • Peel and slice the 2 bananas. Cover a plate with plastic wrap. Spread the banana slices out on the plate, cover with another layer of plastic wrap, and freeze for at least 1 hour prior to assembling punch. In a punch bowl, place frozen banana slices, pineapple chunks, and strawberries. Pour in the fruit punch. Using an ice cream scoop, place small scoops of rainbow sherbet on the surface of the punch. Slowly pour the soda into the punch bowl and stir gently with a wooden spoon. A foam cap will rise on the top of the punch. Serve punch with a few fruit pieces and some foamy sherbet in each glass. As sherbet melts, the punch will become thicker, richer, and more delicious.

    Thank you so much. This is just what I was looking for. Though I don’t have the bananas ready, so I will just use frozen blackbery/raspberry/blueberry mix, and pineapples. Hope it works! It looks delicious!

    1. Erin– yes! But they will be tough for little mouths to bite through, so you might want to let them thaw till they’re tender before adding them to the punch.
