Frozen Fruit Cups

 

Frozen Fruit Cups

    Ingredients:

  • 1 package (8 ounces) fat-free cream cheese
  • 1 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Equal® for Recipes
       or 8 packets Equal® sweetener
       or 1/3 cup Equal® Spoonful™
  • 2-3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh or canned peaches
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh or unsweetened frozen raspberries
       or halved or quartered strawberries
  • 1 cup cubed fresh or canned pineapple in juice
  • 1 can (11 ounces) Mandarin orange segments, drained
  • 12 pecan halves, optional

 

Directions:

  1. Beat cream cheese, sour cream, Equal® and lemon juice in medium bowl until smooth; gently mix in fruit.
  2. Spoon mixture into 12 paper-lined muffin cups, or spread in baking dish, 10x6 inches. Garnish with pecan halves and additional fruit, if desired. Freeze until firm, 6 to 8 hours. Let stand at room temperature until slightly softened, 10 to 15 minutes, before serving.

Tips:

  • If made in a 10 x 6 inch baking dish; cut into squares and serve on lettuce-lined plates as a salad, or on plates with a pureed strawberry or raspberry sauce for dessert.
  • The fruit mixture can be spooned into hollowed-out orange halves and frozen. Cut thin slice from bottom of orange halves so they will stand; place in muffin tins to freeze.
