A few weeks ago, one of my favorite stores, Sam’s Club challenged me to come up with a drink using fresh produce from the store! This was a win-win for me because I always buy my fruit from Sam’s. What I love most about buying fresh produce from Sam’s Club is their 200% guarantee. (Sam’s Club offers a 200% Guarantee for fresh meat, produce and bakery items. They will refund double the Member’s purchase price or refund the purchase price and replace the product.) This is perfect for me because there is nothing worst than buying fruit and getting home only to discover it’s not fresh!
With my challenge in hand, I headed over to Sam’s Club to stock up on fruit…
I picked up all my favorites for less than $25.00: Cherries, Strawberries, Grapes, Blueberries, Raspberries Apples and more…
Then it was time to head home to see what we could create!
Don’t you just love all that fresh fruit?
Check my intern Sha mixing the ingredients; after much trial and error we finally got it right!!
So what’s in it, you may ask???
- 1/2 Cup of Cherries
- 2 Cups of Strawberries
- 1 Cup of Grapes
- 1/2 Cup of Blueberries
- 1/2 Cup of Raspberries
- 1 Granny Smith Apples
- 3 cans of 7-up
- 16oz of Kool-Aid Tropical Fruit Punch (mixed with water)
- 1/2 Cucumber
- Fresh Lemon Juice (1 lemon)
- 1/2 Cup of Sugar (may uses sugar substitute)
Make it to your liking, you add or take away as much as you like and use a cucumber to garnish!
For inspiration, I used the Sam’s Club Fresh, Fast and Fabulous Cookbook which I will be giving away at the bottom of this post…
