Refreshing Mid-Summer Slush

I had this slush a couple weeks ago at a baby shower. It was so wonderfully delish and refreshing that I had about 5 servings and couldn't shut-up about how good it was the whole evening. By nights end, I had to have the recipe and lucky for me, the wonderful woman who made it brought copies (she must get asked for the recipe a lot)! I made the slush a few days later for a family bbq and it was smiles all around.


4 cups white sugar
4 cups boiling water
4 cups pineapple juice
2 1/2 cups orange juice
5 cups mashed bananas
12 pack of Sprite or 7-Up

Dissolve 4 cups white sugar into 4 cups boiling water in a large pot. Turn heat off and add 4 cups pineapple juice and 2 1/2 cups orange juice (I use the Simply brand). Add 5 cups mashed banana (It takes about 10-11 bananas to make 5 cups of mashed bananas). Stir the bananas around until evenly distributed. Pour into two 9x13 metal pans, dividing the mixture evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and then tin foil over the plastic wrap. Freeze for at least 4 hours or you could freeze anywhere up to a week (I just pulled some from the freezer that had been in there for well over a week and it looked and tasted just as good as the day I made it).

When ready to serve, take the pan (or both) out of freezer and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes on your counter top (the time could be less depending on the temp. of the room). Break up slush with a fork and then scoop 3 heaping tablespoons (or more) of slush into a cup. Pour chilled sprite or 7-up over the slush. Serve with a spoon.

If I had to choose one thing to eat for the rest of my life, it might be this. Also, your mom is a hand hottie.
