Frozen Fruit Cups

One of my favorite parts of summer is when my mom used to make these fruit cups and store in our deep freeze!  They are the YUMMIEST and incredibly refreshing little afternoon treat! 

2 c water
1 c sugar
2 c pinapple juice
1 - 16 oz frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 - 16 oz frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
20 ounces frozen strawberries
6-8 fresh bananas
32 - 4 oz disposable cups
32 - 4 oz disposable lids

Boil water and sugar together until sugar is dissolved.  Pour into a large bowl.  Add orange and lemonade concentrates.  Also add pineapple juice.  Crush the frozen strawberries or blend just until mashed.  Add into liquid mix.  Place containers on counter and cut 3 or so slices of bananas into EACH cup.  Top with liquid mixture.  Press on lids tightly.  Freeze COMPLETELY in a deep freeze or regular fridge freezer.  Let set on counter about 15 minutes before eating.

Joanna - what a greeat Midwestern treat! My recipe called for it to be set out for 15 minutes, then scooped with an ice cream scoop. I love the individual containers with lids.

Hey Roxann! WOW! That's interesting to set it out then scoop. My version is pretty "slushy" so doing an ice cream scoop would be interesting.
