You are going to love this one people. I happened to come into a HUGE box of grapefruits (more than one can normally eat in a month). I had no idea what to do with all of them, but being my mothers daughter I also knew that I could not throw them out. So when I was talking to my mom I asked her if she had any fabulous grapefruit recipes. She said she did. She had a recipe for a grapefruit slush that Grandma Katherine used to make. She didn't have any measurements but this is pretty much a no brainer.
To make this you need:
-Grapefruit (lots of them because grapefruit are one of those wasteful fruits that don't provide you with many edible pieces when all is said and done). I used about 10 per batch.
-Strawberries or raspberries. They can be frozen or fresh. You will want the amount to match the amount of cut grapefruit. These need to be cut up (if you are using strawberries).
-1 can of crushed pineapple (don't drain it)
-Sugar (as much as you would like). SIDE NOTE: the other night small fry told me that she loved me like sugar-how cute is that.
Cut up your grapefruit. (I have included a mini tutorial for any one who is not sure how to go about doing that). Drain off all the juice once you are done cutting up all your pieces. Mix all of the remaining ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour into freezer containers and freeze until firm. When you are ready for a slush, chop out a chunk of the frozen fruit mixture (I say chop because you literally have to chisel it out of the container). Put it in a glass (fill about 1/2 of the glass) then pour some type of lemon lime soda pop over the top. Stir to break up chunks and you have a DIVINE slush. I won't let you know how many I have had in the last few weeks. Perfectly perfect for summer.
