Frozen Fruit Cups: The Ultimate Summer Treat

Frozen Fruit Cups are the ultimate summer treat. They are packed with healthy fruits and frozen to perfection for a sweet way to beat the heat on a hot day! These are easy to make, and are sure to be a family favourite.

As soon as the temperatures start to warm up, I start to crave all things frozen! While it would be easy to dive into a pint of ice cream every evening, it might not be the best choice. To combat my desires for frozen goodness, I came up with something healthier that was so good, I knew I had to share it! 

Variety of fruits

This Frozen Fruit Cups recipe makes use of a variety of fruits. I love it because you can make it anytime, there is no need to wait until everything is in season. With frozen strawberries, canned pineapple, and mandarin oranges to name a few, this frozen fruit cups dessert comes together easily to create a one of a kind treat that kids and adults will love.

Freezing Time

This Frozen Fruit cups recipe does require 3 hours of freeze time. Make a batch early in the day and leave in the freezer for a cool refreshment in the evening. If you are anticipating guests, this is an easy way to wow them with dessert without too much fuss or any need to heat up the house baking. You can definitely make these ahead of time, but plan to eat them within a few days for maximum freshness.
