How’s your summer been? I can’t believe how fast summer is passing! We’re into August already?! What happened to June and July?? It’s been a warm summer here with lots of hot days when something cold to eat or drink feels amazing! So here’s another idea for you to try for a tasty way to cool down! This is my own concoction but it got mostly good reviews and nice compliments (“It’s so refreshing!”) when I took it to a potluck recently. Only 2 people thought it needed more sweetener so keep that in mind if you like things really sweet…you might want to add some sugar. 😉 So here’s how to make Fruit Slush!
This recipe will be using “guesstimates” of how much of each ingredient to add. (Yes, I forgot to write down the amounts I used. Oops! Sorry!) But you can use your own judgement and adjust to what your family likes best. I drained 2 cans of crushed pineapple in a drainer for a few minutes. Then I chopped the pineapple and a peeled banana up into a smoothie consistency in my Vitamix blender. I poured it into a bowl before adding the next ingredients.
I stirred in about 1/2 of a can of Sprite SLOWLY!! It will fizz up very easily!
Lastly, I added about half of the small bottle of orange juice to the mixture and stirred it together.
I poured the final mixture into my Tupperware mold to make it look nice and popped it into the freezer overnight.
I took it out of the mold and into a bowl at the potluck…turning it right side up…and sat that bowl into a really large bowl filled with ice cubes. It was served with an ice cream scoop into small plastic cups. You could mix and match fruit as you like it and its just so refreshing on a hot day! Hope you enjoy it! Let me know what fruit you make yours with and how it turns out! 🙂 Until next time… 🙂
