Easy Citrus Slush Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe was created years ago for church bridal and baby showers, the result of the hostess committee sharing ideas. We would use different flavored gelatins to color-coordinate with the decor of the occasion. I especially liked the flavors and colors of lemon and pineapple and developed them into this recipe, which I like to use at home.
