"I created this punch recipe when I went looking for a punch recipe for my Baby Shower. I really wanted blue punch because I was having a boy this time. The ice cream melts somewhat and turns the punch a beautiful baby blue color leaving frothy blue and white clouds floating on top. Everyone thought it tasted great and asked for the recipe. Its also very adaptable to your taste. The sky's the limit. Try any flavor or color of unsweetened drink mix in place of the blue." — CHIXROCK

1 (0.13 ounce) package
blue, berry flavored unsweetened drink mix
1 (2 liter) bottle
lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
1 (64 fluid ounce) bottle
white cranberry juice
vanilla ice cream
white sugar, or to taste
I made this yesterday for a baby shower, however, I did make a few changes mostly because I couldn't find the ingredients needed. I could not find the blue drink mix, so I instead used a jug of the Blue Hawaiian Punch, the lemon lime soda and then white grape juice because I could not find white cranberry juice. Everyone loved it!!! And it was so cute with the ducks floating in it. **I've since made this for Halloween using the green Hawaiian punch and floated those black plastic spider rings in it. Too cute!**
I made it for a baby shower and the flavor was just OK and the ice cream absolutely did not work. Sherbert was made for punch, not ice cream. It started seperating and looking really gross on top of the punch.
I thought this was an excellent punch recipe--very tasty, and not to sweet but not too tart. My punch bowl holds 6 quarts, and this recipe was just enough to fill my punch bowl to about 2 inches from the top. I'm always disappointed about the lack of punch options for "It's a Boy" baby showers. So I tried this punch recipe to see if it would work well for future baby showers. I will definitely use it in the future, maybe even experiment with different colors of Kool-Aid that would be suitable for other party themes. The one thing I would point out...I prefer Vanilla Bean ice cream, so out of habit, that's what I used when making this punch. I didn't notice any vanilla beans in the punch itself, but there were tiny little black specks along the sides of the punch cups that resembled dirt. I don't think the vanilla bean residue effected the flavor of the punch, but nonetheless others might prefer using an ice cream that doesn't include vanilla beans. I submitted a photo of the Baby Blue Punch that I made, which was taken about 5 minutes after adding the ice cream scoops. So you can see that it doesn't take long for the frothy blue clouds to develop.
Throwing a baby shower for one of my best friends I was looking all over for a blue punch to go with our all blue theme. I came across this one and will admit I was a little skeptical...using ice cream in a punch??? This was one of the best punch recipes I have ever tasted. Everyone was raving about it. We went through 2 bowls of the punch for about 20 people. This is a great, SUPER easy recipe!!
We made this recipe for my best friend's baby shower. It was a BIG hit! Instead of using blue drink mix (which is hard to find) We used Blue Hawaiian Punch and whit cranberry juice. It was delicious! We had to refill the punch bowl 3 times! Thank you for the wonderful drink! I would recommend this to everyone!
I loved this receipe, but for our baby shower I made some modifications. I used blue hawaiian punch, with pineapple soda, and pineapple sherbert. I turned out great. Thanks for making such an easily modified recipe.
Made this today for a baby shower, I followed the directions word for word. Mixed all the liquids and powder, and then tasted. The sugar was needed, as it tasted very tart without it. The punch turned out a very vibrant blue color, and when I added the vanilla ice cream it turned a very pretty baby blue color. The punch in no way looked "gross" or anything with the ice cream on top.
Everyone really enjoyed this punch, and many asked for the recipe...and were surprised it was made with Kool-Aid.
I served this at my daughters baby shower! It was a great hit and everyone loved the duckies floating around in the fountain... I actually served it without trying it before hand because we liked the "blue" punch. Everyone loved it and I will definately use this recipe again! Thanks for sharing it with us!
