Fruity Slush

This is a nice, healthy snack which can also serve as a side dish or dessert. Simple to make, you just whirl 4 ingredients in the blender, then pop into the freezer for a couple of hours to turn slushy. As an extra bonus, you get a great calcium boost from the nonfat dry-milk powder. Healthy and tasty. SCORE.

1 c. crushed pineapple, packed in its own juice
1/2 banana
1 T. frozen orange juice concentrate (I didn't have this, but used about 3 T. regular orange juice instead)
1/3 c. nonfat dry milk powder
Blend all ingredients in blender. Place mixture in plastic bowl and put in freezer for a couple hours, until slushy. (Two hours was perfect for mine. It sounds from the recipe like you can still eat it even if it gets really firm.)
NOTE: Go check out Ann Kroeker's Food on Fridays for more culinary deliciousness.

I can do this! I can do this!

I love simple, easy, yummy recipes.

But I think I might wait until it totally warms up to try this. It looks summery.

Then again, maybe sitting, sipping a slush, is a way to pretend that it's warm outside...

Hi Lynn! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Re: The Dandelion wine, I did actually look into it for my Dad, but the recipe I found took four QUARTS of dandelion flowers... I didn't have that much in my little garden area, only enough for the 1/2 cup for the cookies! And now I've already pulled all of the "weeds" so that I can start planting our veggies!

Off to check out your blog...
