Valentine Party Recipes

Red Fruit Punch
2 quarts water
1 pouch sugar free berry or red fruit drink powder
1 bottle cranberry raspberry drink or red fruit punch
1, 6 ounce can frozen orange juice concentrate
1, 6 ounce frozen lemonade
1, 46 ounce can pineapple juice
1-2 liters sugar free 7-Up, Verner’s, or Ginger Ale
crushed ice
berries and thinly sliced lemons and oranges for garnish

Mix the water and drink powder together in a large punch bowl, add all the other juices. If the punch is too strong, add more water to taste. If it needs more flavor, add a little more drink powder. Just before serving add ice and soda. Float fruit slices in bowl if desired.

Strawberry Dip
1 ounce cream cheese
1 stick butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 large fresh strawberries, hulled, clean and dry

Using a food processor with knife blade, blend cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Drop strawberries, one at a time, down the shoot of the blender (make sure berries are completely dry as it will make the dip runny if they are wet). Serve with all kinds of fruit or use your imagination with other yummy foods!
