Gluten Free Treat for Christmas: Fruit Snow

Frozen Fruit Slush Recipe(Photo Credit: Taste of Home)

Today the girls and I were invited to a play date. I woke up early to make quiche for my girlfriends then ran through a drive-thru to pick up a salad for myself (I am a bit of a black sheep at social events, lol!). But low and behold my sweet friend Kimmy made this delicious dessert that I COULD EAT (doing a little jig)!!!! I picked at my salad …then had 3 BOWLS of this heavenly stuff!  I called it “Fruit Snow”and decided right there and then that I would be making this for Christmas so that I don’t feel left out when everyone has dessert…it is deeeelish! Hope this helps anyone else struggling with the urge to purge!

  1. EXCELLENT! Thank you for posting this! I will add this to my Christmas dessert list!

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed it!! I would give it more time to freeze…it takes a while!

  3. I have a similar recipe, but without the sugar water and with coconut. We call it ‘ambrosia.’ Everyone loves it and no one gets sick or a headache or sensitive skin for days. 🙂

  5. There is a lot of sugar in here… you think one could cut it in half? Or use truvia or splenda?
