Sparkling Pink Pear Lemonade Slushee

This quick and easy fruit treat is made easily by keeping a can of pears in the freezer. There's no danger of the can bursting, and freezing makes the pears instantly ready to purée with some juice and soda. The result: a nutritious and delicious frosty slush. This fruit slushee is ideal when a summer heat blast wilts the little ones, and delightful any time you (or your kids) want a refreshing break. Leftovers can be refrozen and scooped as an Italian ice.
