Sensational Slush

Bryant made and we served this slush at his Homecoming 2011 dinner.  We had leftovers, which have kept well in the freezer.  Just use an ice-cream scoop to portion the slush in glassware, and then pour an equal amount of chilled soda over the slush.  This slush really is "sensational!"

Sensational Slush
from Taste of Home's More Fast Fixes with Mixes

1/2 cup sugar
1 package (3 oz.) strawberry gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 can (12 oz.) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 can (12 oz.) frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
2 cups cold water
2 liters lemon-lime soda, chilled

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar and gelatin in boiling water.  In a blender, combine the pineapple juice and strawberries; cover and process until blended.  Add to gelatin mixture.  Stir in concentrates and cold water.  Cover and freeze for 8 hours or overnight.

Remove from the freezer 45 minutes before serving.  For each serving, combine 1/2 cup slush mixture with 1/2 cup lemon-lime soda; stir well.  Yield:  20 servings.

Editor's Notes:  I froze the slush in a 13x9 pan, because I thought it would freeze faster than in a bowl.  The slush doesn't require removal from freezer 45 minutes before serving.  I use an ice cream scoop, and it comes right out.
