Summer is the perfect time for slushies. Most of the time you want a slush, you have to make it and freeze it hours. You can totally do that with this recipe. Or you can speed up the process and have it in about 20 minutes using your ice cream maker. I know, what a great idea, huh? Plus, it really does work.
This was another treat my family just loved. It was simple, it was slushy, it was tasty, and it was fruity. What better way to cool of on the back patio that with one of these! If I had some fresh pineapple when I made these, I would have added a wedge on the glass.
- 3 cups water
- 4 large ripe bananas,mashed
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 can (20-oz) crushed pineapple, undrained
- 1/2 of a 12 oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
Quick method: Combine all of the ingredients in 2 qt bowl. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker. Turn the machine on and let mix for 20-25 minutes. I used my 1 1/2 qt Cuisinart ice cream maker and need to do 2 batches. It was a little over flowing at the end but not to the point of spilling over.
Regular method: In large airtight freezer container, combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Cover and freeze for at least 5 hours or overnight. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving.
