In the summer, I make a big batch of these delicious slushy fruit cups and store them in the freezer. They make great snacks and are wonderful to have on hand when friends stop by. We also like them with blueberries, raspberries, muskmelon and cherries.

"My mom made this for my brother's rehearsal dinner, and it was a huge hit. It is both delicious and pretty! Since then, it has become a favorite family treat, especially when there is extra fruit on hand! (There is always left over watermelon!)"
