I want to make this recipe, but I am allergic to oranges. Do you think pineapple juice would work instead of orange juice. There are many other fruits I can choose instead of mandarin oranges such as peaches or apricots. But I'm a little puzzled as to what juice to use. I would appreciate hearing from others what they think.

These delicious fruit cups are enough for a crowd. They're easy & quick. I used fruit cocktail plus bananas instead of the pineapple tidbits. Great for a hot summer day.
