This is a satisfying summer cooler and an ideal use for fruit on the verge of overripening, or you can use packaged frozen mixed fruit from the supermarket. Make this for a spur-of-the-moment dessert, snack -- or even breakfast -- that will please both kids and adults alike.
3 cups frozen mixed chopped fruit (cantaloupe, bananas, strawberries, peaches, or others of your choice); do not thaw
1 cup apple juice or orange juice
Kiwi slices, whole strawberries, or raspberries for garnish
Blend the fruit and juice in a food processor or blender until smooth, occasionally pushing down fruit chunks for uniform consistency. Serve immediately; the mixture melts quickly!
In advance, peel the fruit (if necessary), wrap in a plastic bag, and freeze overnight or for up to 2 weeks. Fruit smoothies are best if served immediately after preparing. If necessary, the mixture can be frozen for up to 30 minutes before serving; if frozen longer, the mixture becomes icy.
