The weather is gorgeous, Florida humidity is at a rare low, the grass is turning green, everything is coming together for me to sit outside and enjoy this beautiful spring. Except, for me to truly enjoy this weather, I mean truly enjoy all it has to offer…..I will need a snack. Girlfriend loves her snacks!
Remember the Frozen Fruit Salad your Grandma used to make and you could eat like a popsicle? I had forgotten all about this little treat until I came across the recipe in my old index card file box full of recipes. This my friends is the perfect little snack to enjoy while sitting on your porch reading your favorite book.
I saw the recipe in my file box and it brought back a smile! I remember eating these years ago. I had completely forgotten about them. I will never make that mistake again. I am fairly certain I will keep these in my freezer throughout the entire spring and summer.
These come together in one bowl so clean up is a snap. Combine sour cream, lemon juice, sugar, mashed bananas, canned crushed pineapple, chopped maraschino cherries, and chopped pecans. Pour into a lined muffin/cupcake tin and freeze. That’s it!
Sir Streusel was so happy I made these. He said he remembered eating these as a little boy and loved them. He may or may not have eaten several of these during one sitting.
This is such a refreshing little snack. There is no need for an oven, stove top, mixer, or a blender. All you need is a bowl, large spoon, and a can opener. I think we can all appreciate the simplicity of this little salad!
I keep the little cups of frozen salad in a ziplock bag in our freezer. I find myself walking by the freezer waaaaaaay too often to grab one of these goodies!
