FROSTY FRUIT

 Every year about two weeks before Christmas, I make this Frosty Fruit recipe.  It's great to have in the freezer to pull out during this busy season when you want a "not-so-sweet treat".  My family likes it as a side dish, a dessert, a snack, or even for breakfast.
Here's the easy and fast recipe:

FROSTY FRUIT

1 12 oz. can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 12 oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 16 oz. package frozen strawberries, thawed
1 40 oz. can crushed pineapple with juice
6 bananas, chopped
5 cups water
Mix well in large bowl, and set in freezer until slushy.
Pour into 9 oz. plastic cups and cover with plastic wrap.  Freeze solid.
Partially thaw (slushy and fruit still frozen) before serving.  Makes about 20 cups.
P.S.:  Gift giving spanning the generations -- that adorable Santa in the background was made by my grand daughter when she was in pre-school 15 years ago; and the pedestal wooden stand was made by my father in his high school wood-shop class 84 years ago as a gift to his mother.

What wonderful treasures from your family. I have to ask you- Don't the bananas get mushy as they thaw? xo Diana

I make a similar fruit Sally, but mine isn't frozen. There are a few variations so I am going to try yours for a change. I know I will love it as well!
