Beat the Heat! Frozen Fruit Salads!

By: Sheilah Kaufman

It's hot, kids cranky? Baby sitting for the grandkids? Let them make and devour these wonderful frozen treats. Be aware, adults also love them, so keep a big batch in the freezer. 


  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 3/ 4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • one (15 ounce can) crushed pineapple, well drained
  • 1/ 3 cup chopped maraschino cherries
  • 1/ 3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 - 3 bananas, sliced thin

In a large bowl, stir together the sour cream, sugar, and lemon juice. Add the gelatin and mix well. Stir in the drained pineapple, cherries, walnuts, and banana slices. Mix together thoroughly. Spoon mixture into paper cupcake liners set in muffin tins (any size, I like the standard, but you could use mini). Freeze uncovered, and when frozen, remove the salads (with the liners) from the muffin tins and place in a large freezer baggie. 

Let your frozen treats come to room temperature, about 15 to 20 minutes before serving, or if you like them like as popsicles, eat frozen.
