Recipe for Frozen Banana Slush

1 large can pineapple juice
5 bananas (I prefer using ripe)
2 cups orange juice
4 cups granulated sugar
6 cups water
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 2-Liters of Lemon Lime Soda

Preparing this recipe is rather quick and easy!
You have to create a simple syrup by boiling the sugar and water together on the stovetop, which takes about 10 minutes.
You also have to blend together the orange juice and the bananas, which takes about 3 minutes.
And all that's left is mixing all the ingredients together! You pour them all into a large, air tight container that will fit in your freezer.
Allow this recipe to set up overnight in the freezer! Anywhere from 12-24 hours is ideal!
When you are ready to serve, you scoop out about a 1/2 cup of the frozen banana slush like ice cream, and pour the lemon lime soda over the top!
