Ingredients for Fruit Slushie

Preparation Time: 10 minutes plus cooling time
Serves : 12  cups 

Equipment : Saucepan, wooden spoon, freezer proof plastic container

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 x 46-ounce can unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 2 medium banana's mashed
  • Ginger ale/sprite/7 Up - chilled

How to Make Fruit Slushie

  1. Place the sugar and water in a saucepan and dissolve over a gentle heat.
  2. Mash the bananas and mix with the fruit juices.
  3. Stir fruit juice mixture and sugar syrup together and pour into a freezer proof plastic container.
  4. Let it freeze for a couple of hours or until ice crystals are begining to form. Then remove from the freezer and give it good mix with a hand held electric beater.
  5. Return to the freezer and repeat step 4 a couple more times. You want the mix to look slushy rather than creamy smooth.
  6. Now freeze it overnight or for at least 6 hours.
  7. When you are ready to make the fruit slushie, remove the mix from the freezer and let it stand for half an hour to soften it up a bit.
  8. Scrape a large spoonful of slushie and put it in a cup/glass. Top with ginger ale or other carbonated soft drink.
  9. Add a spoon or straw and drink immediately!
