Preparation Time10 min
Chilling Time3 hr
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 ounce thawed frozen orange juice concentrate
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1 (16-ounce) package frozen mixed berries, partially thawed
- 1 (15-ounce) can sliced peaches, drained and chopped
- 1 large banana (or 2 small bananas), sliced
Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine water and sugar. Boil for 3-4 minutes, whisking regularly to dissolve the sugar.
Add orange juice concentrate and lemon juice. Stir to combine.
Meanwhile, combine undrained berries, pineapple, peaches, and bananas in a large bowl.
Pour water mixture over the fruit and gently stir to coat.
Spoon fruit and liquid into paper-lined muffin cups.
Freeze until firm. You can then remove the fruit cups from the muffin tins, discard the paper liners, and store the frozen fruit cups in a large zip-top bag in the freezer.
When ready to serve, let stand at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes (or until slightly thawed) before serving.
