Frozen Fruit Cups

This is a frozen fruit salad with a crunchy/slushy texture which is divided into individual portions. You can keep them stored in your freezer and pull one out whenever you want. It is high in vitamins A and C, high in fiber, and is loaded with antioxidants. I added one fresh peach to this recipe and the flavor really stood out, so I plan to add a lot of fresh fruit the next time I make it. Just do what you like and whatever you have time for. It is a great summer treat for adults and kids alike. I can't describe in this post how delicious it is. You will have to just try it!

Frozen Fruit Cups

12 oz undiluted orange juice concentrate
6 oz undiluted lemonade concentrate
1 - 15 oz can fruit cocktail in light syrup
2 - 15 oz cans unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
2 - 10 oz bags unsweetened frozen strawberries
6 bananas, sliced and quartered
fresh peaches, grapes, pears, or your favorite

Combine ingredients and pour into individual containers. Freeze for about 4 hours. Thaw at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving.

Chop the strawberries:

And the bananas:

Stir all the ingredients together:

Spoon into containers.

I like these because they have lids.

Place in the freezer for several hours.

Thaw to desired slushiness, which for me is about 20 minutes. Enjoy poolside, or wherever!

I'm sure the addition of fresh peaches make these fruit cups even better. I too have been craving them. They are great!!
