Keep some canned fruit in your freezer and you can whip up this refreshing and fruity slush in a snap.
Seal the canned fruit in a zip-lock bag and place the bag in the freezer.
When the kids are hot and thirsty, submerge the bag in a bowl of hot tap water until the fruit is slightly thawed (about a minute).
Pour the syrup into a food processor and slide the frozen fruit onto a cutting board. Chop the fruit into small chunks and put them in the food processor. Blend the fruit and syrup until smooth, from 30 seconds to 2 1/2 minutes, depending on the type of fruit. Serve immediately. Makes 4 half-cup servings.
