Reviews for Chilled Fruit Cups
"My husband's favorite treat!"
"The fruit can be altered--I often add raspberries"
"These are great! They are easy to make and I have found they are an easy, quick breakfast. (You can thaw them by microwaving them.) I loved the chunks of fruit- I also added a 10 oz. or 2 oz. (I forget which one it was) package of frozen blueberries to the mix. You might need a couple extra cups for this addition. I might add less blueberries next time- it turned the mixture a funny color of purple. Also, be sure to halve; or better yet; quarter your strawberries, they can remain frozen when the rest of your fruit cup is not. So yummy- a quick snack. Will make again!"
"This is a "big" hit out at the baseball park. I can't keep enough in our concessions stand. So easy to put together & tastes great!!!!!! So try it & you won't regret it....Yumm"
"The ease of prep was key...very easy assembly. I suggest taking out of freezer alot sooner. Mine were still pretty frozen even after the 40-50 minutes. Next time I would cut the strawberries in half because by the time the fruit cups were of a slushy consistency, the whole strawberries were still frozen. People were spiting out the strawberries because they were so cold. I put a dolop of whip cream on top to finish and a cherry. Looked very pretty and colorful on the Easter Brunch table."
