Grandma Linda’s frozen fruit is a family favorite. It’s on the menu of almost every gathering at my parents’ house, was a hit at Rowan’s graduation party and was even toted in a cooler on a family trip to Gatlinburg, Tenn.
So how does she make it, anyway? Here’s her secret recipe:
1 24-ounce container Kroger Private Selection frozen sliced strawberries with sugar or Splenda
3 15-ounce cans mandarin oranges, drained
1 20-ounce can pineapple tidbits with juice
4 or 5 bananas, sliced
1 cup Sunny D orange beverage
“I just mix it all up and pour it in a 9 by 12 freezer box, so it’s easy to thaw out,” she says. “But a lot of times I make two or three batches at once, so maybe it makes more than that. I’m not really sure.”
