Frozen Pineapple Banana Cups

Frozen-Banana-Pineapple-Cups-2-for-web

The weather here today has been more like summer than the middle of spring, with 80 degree temperatures that make you thirsty for a cold glass of lemonade – or a frosty cup of this yummy treat.

These little frozen cups are sweet and tangy, with a tropical twist that will make you want to put your feet up and swing in a hammock all day long. They are super easy to make too – just throw everything in an electric ice cream maker, or stash it in a container in the freezer for a couple of hours.

Keep this recipe handy for this summer, you’ll be glad you did.

(adapted from Taste of Home)
(prep: 10 minutes; freezing time: 30 minutes; yield: 9-12 servings)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 2/3 cups mashed ripe bananas (5 to 6 medium)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can (20-oz) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 can (6-oz) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed


Ice Cream Maker: Combine all of the ingredients in the container of your ice cream maker. Turn the machine on and let mix for 20-30 minutes.  Serve and enjoy! (Note: depending on the size of your container, you may need to make this in two batches.

Freezer method: In a 2 qt. freezer container, combine all of the ingredients. Mix well. Cover and freeze for 5 hours or overnight. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving.

(Note: You can get away with using less sugar in this recipe, since the fruit contains enough sugar. I’ve made it with just 1/2 cup sugar before and it has been fine – just a little more tart.

Enjoy!

Hello! The combination of banana and pineapple sounds new to me, but very tempting as well! It`s still 10 degrees (C) here yet I feel like I have to try this gorgeous tropical drink right now!

This looks so refreshing...and I suppose it would very easy to substitute the sugar with honey or agave nectar.
