Frozen Fruit Cups for a Cool Summer Dessert

We have been making this fruit dessert for many years, it is so refreshing on a hot summer day.

We made these for our Ladies tea at our church in California last year, and it was enjoyed by all, and looked really pretty being served with the finger sandwiches and scones.

You can make it in a 9x13 pan, or put in clear plastic cups to serve individually, which is what we usually do.  

Frozen fruit cups…

*12 oz orange juice concentrate with 1 can water
*12 oz pineapple juice concentrate  with 1 can water
1 bag frozen strawberries, chopped
6 bananas, sliced
1 can crushed pineapple with juice
1 can sliced peaches in juice, cut up
1 package raspberries or blackberries (about 2 cups)

Mix juice and fruit together and mix well. Pour into a 9 x 13 inch glass pan, or into individual clear plastic cups. Freeze until solid. When ready to serve, let it sit out for about 15-30 minutes before attempting to cut. (depends on how hot it is out)  Use a fork to eat it, you kind of flake it apart and eat it like a slushy fruit delicacy. 

**You can use frozen Lemonade, Cran-raspberry, or other juices in place of the juices recommended, as well as adding any other fruit that you might like. We have added apricots, cranberries, blueberries, cherries, etc to the mix and it always turns out wonderful.  If you add sour fruit, you might want to add 1/2 cup of sugar to counter the sour fruit.
