Recipe Review- Frozen Fruit Cups

Here is a nice treat for a hot summer day. These Frozen Fruit Cups are a nice change to regular fruit salad.

1 can (12 oz) frozen pineapple juice concentrate, thawed
orange juice (2 juice cans full)
water (1 juice can full)
1/2 cup sugar
3 medium firm bananas, sliced
frozen, sliced, sweetened strawberries
1 can (15 oz) mandarin oranges
1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple
clear plastic cups
In a large bowl combine all the ingredients. Ladle into the cups and freeze. To serve, set them out of the freezer for 40-50 minutes or defrost them a bit in the microwave. Feel free to substitute ingredients as you like. I place all the cups on a cookie sheet to keep them upright in the freezer.

I made a few changes to this, I accidently got frozen lemonaid, and I used fresh strawberries, blueberries, and a jar of cherries. This was still good, a bit tart though. Hubby's complaint was that he had to wait for them to thaw a bit.

Hubby- 4 stars
Myself- 4 stars
Kiddo- hasn't wanted any yet. He did help make them.
