Refreshing Frozen Fruit Salad

Refreshing Frozen Fruit Salad

It has been a HOT Summer!  Where I live, we have had record breaking heat!  On these 100° days, I want something frosty and refreshing to eat.  You can’t beat this Frozen Fruit Salad when it comes to a refreshing side dish for a BBQ or just for your weeknight meal.

When I was a kid, my mom would freeze canned fruit cocktail in those aluminum ice cube trays and slush it up just before dinner.  I always looked forward to that.  This is a little bit fancier version!

It doesn’t take much effort, but the slushy fruit is such a treat! This can be made ahead, so it’s great for entertaining.  Just take it out of the freezer about 20 minutes before serving time and break it into smaller pieces with a fork.  Serve immediately.

Here’s what you need:

2 c. fresh strawberries, sliced

1 can pineapple chunks or tidbits (with the juice)

3 medium ripe bananas

1 can DOLE Orange-Peach-Mango Juice Concentrate (do not dilute)

1 – 12oz. can Sprite

That’s it!   Stir these all together in a bowl and put it into freezer containers for several hours or overnight.  (Don’t worry that there is too much juice.  It freezes and makes a nice slush to surround the frozen pieces of fruit!) 

Since my husband and I are empty-nesters, I usually freeze this in 3 smaller containers so we can eat some for a meal and still have some more on hand for another time!
