- Boil water and sugar until slightly thickened; cool slightly.
- Add concentrate, water, lemon juice, and pineapple. Add fruit until juice is thick with fruit. Can be fresh or frozen strawberries, blueberries, grapes, peaches, bananas, raspberries, kiwi, etc. (We usually do strawberries, grapes, bananas, and blueberries) Put in individual cups and freeze.(containers with lids will keep longer.).

Mmm, cool and refreshing! I opted to blend the fruits together per another reviewer's suggestion. I love fruit bars and fruit sorbets and this reminded me of both. I made 1/8 of this recipe, but ended up using 4 freezer containers (the ones that hold about 4oz each). For my fruit I used 1 fresh banana (before it went to waste), some frozen mango chunks and frozen raspberries. I love the idea of freezing this in small containers for single-serve ease. I made a very small batch because it's just me eating this and I have very little room in my freezer. Except for the serving size change, I made this as directed. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game. Thanks for sharing!
Wow! Homemade frozen fruit bars (in a cup)! Ok, I need to get a bunch of those popsicle molds for this recipe. A suggestion is once cooked, put it in the blender and puree it, then make fruitsickles. Very very good Shelby Jo, Your grandma will be remembered. :) I quartered the recipe and used a jumbo muffin tin for the mold, and got 6 of em. Once they froze up, I took them out of the mold, wrapped them in plastic wrap and set them in the freezer. This is a wonderful treat for kids and grown-ups.

<p>I've loved cooking and baking for as long as I can remember. I've really gotten into it more in the past few years. It's just my husband and I so I can't do all the cooking I would like though. <br /><br /><br /><a title=PaperBackSwap.com - Book Club to Swap, Trade & Exchange Books for Free. href=http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php?n=12&r_by=Shelby><img src=http://www.paperbackswap.com/images/icons/weblog_icon_600_120_2.gif alt=PaperBackSwap.com - Book Club to Swap, Trade & Exchange Books for Free. width=600 height=120 /></a> <br /><br />I love to watch tv & movies, go out with friends, read, write letters and spend time with my husband & family.
