Sparkling Pink Pear Lemonade Slushee

This recipe courtesy of Chef Andrew Schloss and, the website of the Canned Food Alliance.

This quick and easy fruit treat is made even easier by keeping a can of pears right in the freezer. There’s no danger of the can bursting and it makes the pears instantly ready to purée with some juice and soda into a nutritious and delicious frosty slush. It’s ideal when a summer heat blast wilts the little ones and delightful any time you want a refreshing break. Leftovers can be refrozen and scooped as an Italian ice.

This recipe is part of Chef Andrew Schloss’ Edibly Fun, Easily Done series, a collection of nine kid-pleasing recipes.
