20--- Grandma's Orange Pineapple Slushie

This recipe is similar to the one my grandmother used to make.  It always reminded me of summer- and it's a nice treat on a hot day! Keep some in your freezer for when friends stop over and they will be SO impressed at your hospitality!

Grandma's Orange Pineapple Slushie
Serves 10

1 can orange juice concentrate
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple with juice
1 14 oz can mandarin orange, drained and rinsed from syrup
2 liters ginger ale, chilled

In a large food processor, combine frozen orange juice concentrate, pineapple with juice, and mandarin oranges.  Mix until a smooth puree is formed.  Add one cup ginger ale and pulse to mix until combined. 

Place mixture in a shallow covered container in the freezer until frozen, or overnight.  Prior to serving, set at room temperature for 20 minutes to scoop more easily.

Use a large spoon or ice cream scoop to scoop out ~ 1/2 cup mixture and place into a glass.  Top with 3/4 cup chilled ginger ale, stir and serve with a straw!
