This recipe for a refreshing fruit slushy dessert comes from Cindy Scott of Gridley, California.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 3 oranges
- 3 lemons
- 1 small can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple
- 3 bananas, cut into small pieces
- Lemon-lime soda, such as 7-Up (optional)
- Mint sprigs, for garnish
In a small saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool. Transfer to an 8-inch square dish and mix with juices of oranges and lemons, crushed pineapple, and bananas. Freeze 3 hours (or up to overnight). Remove from freezer about 20 minutes before serving (mixture should be slightly slushy). If desired, mix with some lemon-lime soda, and garnish with mint sprigs.
