Are you an Orange lover? If so, try this same recipe with two oranges (for the juice) and fresh chunks of pineapple. Yum. Only use 1-2 tbsp. granulated sugar, depending on the sweetness of your oranges.

Grapefruit fiend? Same recipe with 1- 11/2 grapefruits and strawberry slices. Use 4oz. granulated sugar.
