Christmas Morning Fruit Cup

Hoping to add a bit more nutrition and substance to our traditional cinnamon roll breakfast, we came up with this. Once again, a combination of several recipes to fit what we like and what is on hand. (doesn't everyone cook this way???) This recipe was great as the kids could basically do it all and it was done ahead of time, all we had to do was take it out of the freezer so it could thaw a bit before eating.

Christmas Morning Fruit Cup

2 cans crushed pineapple- in it's own juice (not drained)
1 pkg sliced sweetened strawberries
3 bananas, diced
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 large can mandarin oranges, drained
1/4 cup maraschino cherries, quartered
1 can diced peaches in their own juice, or light syrup

mix all together, fill plastic cups. freeze. remove from freezer about 20 minutes before eating. we made 3/4 cup servings.

This sounds so good Heather! We had sticky buns and orange julius (sp?) at our house that morning. I remember thinking we can't just eat caramel and carbs for breakfast :)
