Frozen Fruit Salad- Easy and Refreshing!

Thursday, May 17, 2012

As the weather gets hotter and hotter I look for easy and refreshing recipes. The less I have to turn on stoves and ovens, the better. I found a frozen fruit salad recipe in the Complete Cooking Light Cookbook (page 389) that incorporates fresh fruit. There is no refined sugar added, the sweetness comes from the fruit juices. It is visually interesting and has a great texture and taste. It is a recipe you can do ahead and have handy in your freezer for a lunch or dinner. Each serving has 121 calories. Here is the recipe-

1 1/2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
1 1/2 cups sliced ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1 1/2 cups grapefruit sections (about 2 large grapefruit)
1 1/2 chopped fresh pineapple (you can also use canned chunks in natural juices)
1 3/4 cups pineapple juice
1/3 cup thawed orange juice concentrate

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Pour into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Cover and freeze 4 hours or until firm. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes or until slightly thawed before serving. Yield: 8 servings. Enjoy!
