Fruit Soup

My husband remembers this fondly from his childhood summers. He says he and his sister would nag his mother to make this for them. When she would finally make it, it never lasted longer than a day. Then they would start nagging her to make it all over again.



  • 3 Tbsp. instant tapioca
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 bananas
  • 1 (6 oz.) can frozen orange juice
  • Salt (I never use salt)
  • 1 can cut pineapple. (I like tidbits, you might like chunks)
  • 1 lb package frozen strawberries (fresh doesn't work as well, unless they are really sweet)


Bring water and tapioca to a boil, take off heat and add orange juice (undiluted). Add sliced bananas, strawberries, and pineapple.

I usually double the bananas and orange juice.

Didn't last the day! Everyone loves it and is a great tummy pleaser when sugar treats are not on the menu!
