Pineapple-Mango Slushies

Pineapple-Mango Slushies

To make this easy, frosty treat, simply freeze a juice and fruit mixture and, right before serving, purée in the food processor until it has a soft and slushy texture.

You can also use this recipe to make fruit pops. Cover each paper cup with a piece of plastic wrap or aluminum foil and make a slit in the wrap. Insert a plastic spoon or Popsicle stick through the wrap and freeze until the fruit mixture is solid, at least 3 hours.

You can use any flavor of juice that sounds appealing or try other fruits in place of the pineapple, such as kiwi or berries.

This recipe is not appropriate if you have mouth sores.

Makes 4 servings.

Prep Time: 15 minutes or less
Total Time: 15 minutes or less plus 3 or more hours freezing

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice
  • 3 cups mango-pineapple or other tropical fruit juice, divided

Instructions

  1. In four (3/4-to-1 cup) paper cups, divide pineapple evenly (about 1/4 cup per cup). Fill each cup with 1/2 cup juice and stir to combine. Cover each cup with plastic wrap and freeze until solid, at least 3 hours.
  2. Remove the frozen mixture from the cups by running the outside of each cup under hot water and peeling off the paper. Place the frozen pops (one at a time) in a food processor with 1/4 cup juice and process until slushy.
