Chilled Fruit Cups

by Laura

This is the last of my posts of what I served for Easter breakfast. Not only did I serve overnight blueberry french toast, blueberry syrup, and crunchy coated bacon, but I also served these easy chilled fruit cups.  Even though Easter is over all of these recipes would be perfect for your Mother’s Day breakfast.  I originally had this recipe for the fruit cups when my mother in law brought it to a family gathering at my house.  It was so yummy and refreshing.  Come to find out she got the recipe from none other than a Taste of Home magazine.  And you all know how I love that magazine.
The recipe is so easy and needs to be made ahead of time, which is perfect for when you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen putting together a breakfast.  The other great thing is it is made mostly from juice concentrate and canned fruit.  So it works well for anytime of the year.  I used 10 oz plastic cups and was able to get 15 of them.  I also like it when I have leftovers.  I take it out of the freezer while I get ready for the day and then eat one for my breakfast.  Yummy,  cold, refreshing, slushy fruit!

Chilled Fruit Cups

  • 1 can (12 ounces) frozen pineapple juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 medium firm bananas, sliced
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen unsweetened strawberries (I have used sweetened strawberries and reduced the sugar)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple
  • 18 clear plastic cups (9 ounces)
  1. In a large bowl, prepare pineapple juice concentrate according to package directions. Add orange juice concentrate, water, sugar, lemon juice and fruit.
  2. Spoon 3/4 cupful into each plastic cup. Place cups in a pan and freeze. Remove from the freezer at least 40-50 minutes before serving. Serve with spoons.  (You kind of break up the frozen fruit with you spoon and eat it like a slush) Yield: 18 servings.

We had these tonight for dessert. They are scrumptious. I have to admit, I couldn’t stop at just one.

Cindy, I haven’t ever put anything on them to cover them and they have kept fine for 1 week that way.

These do sound very yummy. Question, when you freeze them do you have some type of lid you use on them or do you wrap foil over the top? Was just wondering how I could keep them from getting freezer burnt and fresh. Thanks…love everything you do!

Simple and delicious! I wonder if my “I-refuse-to-touch-fruit-or-veggies” 5yr old would eat these?
