Chilled Fruit Cups

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 you make ahead of time. This 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 that you make it 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.  Also, I like it when I have leftovers.  I take it out of the freezer while I get ready for the day. Then I eat one for my breakfast.  Yummy,  cold, refreshing, slushy fruit!

  • 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.

  11. 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!
