3 c water
2 c sugar
½ c lemon juice or juice of 3 lemons
20 oz can crushed pineapple
3 c mashed peaches (~7 peaches)
Sprite or 7-Up (¼-½ c per serving)
Bring water and sugar to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Pour lemon juice, pineapple and peaches into a large blender.* Add sugar syrup. Blend well. Pour into quart Ziploc bags (~3-4 c per bag). Freeze. Bring out of freezer about an hour before the meal to soften it (don’t want it rock-hard). Mash with a potato masher or re-blend. Add Sprite or 7-Up. Stir.
*The original recipe stirred the lemon, pineapple and peaches into the sugar syrup. Frozen portions were divided into bowls, Sprite poured on top, and served with a spoon. My family liked the blended version better.
