It can be tempting for kids to sit on the couch and eat chips all summer. But with simple and easy snacks like frozen fruit cups, it’s easy and more fun to eat healthier and get a little boost of vitamin C!
I discovered this recipe for frozen fruit slushes in a church cookbook several years ago and modified it by taking out the recommended cup of sugar. It’s still plenty sweet.
This recipe has become a family favorite! We make up a huge batch, freeze them and enjoy frozen fruit slushies for weeks. The fruit cups also pair well with cinnamon rolls (not so healthy) and breakfast casserole all year long. It’s the perfect combination to serve at brunches or baby showers.

Frozen Fruit Slush
1 6-ounce can frozen lemonade
1 12-ounce can frozen orange juice
1 15-ounce can crushed pineapple
1 15-ounce can pineapple tidbits
1 large package frozen strawberries
3 large bananas
2 cans mandarin oranges
Dilute the lemonade and orange juice as directed on can and pour into large pitcher or bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Spoon the mixture into plastic cups and place in freezer. When you are ready to eat, remove a fruit cup from the freezer and it thaw for at least 15 minutes before eating (so it gets slushy).
