Fruit Slush

(Fruit slush prior to freezing)

This is a refreshing and light slush. Perfect for those hot summer day BBQ's right around the corner. This recipe is T. Mangus adapted recipe from a Taste of Home recipe. T. Mangus has the "great cook" title hooked to her name here in our little town. They say whatever recipe she submits to the hospital cookbook, shares, etc. Is always sure to be a hit. For me this one was no exception. When we were served this at a small church gathering they served it with a dollop of canned whipped cream on it--the added touch.

Fruit Slush (T. Mangus)
1 (12 oz) can frozen lemonade
3-4 Bananas
1 can pineapple crushed or tidbits, with juices
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 can peaches with juices
1 can pears with juices
1 container of frozen strawberries (I used a frozen bag and put it what I thought looked good)
1-2 cups frozen blueberries or other berries
6 oz can of Orange Juice, undiluted

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Cover and freeze for at least 8 hours or until firm. Remove from the freezer 45 minutes before serving. Mix in 1 (20 oz) bottle of Sprite or 7-Up before serving.

*Red grapes halved can be used instead of blueberries. The berries just give it more contrast and sweetness verses a tart flavor.
