Homemade Fresh Fruit Shaved Ice is the perfect summer treat! Fresh fruit syrups are so much healthier than those store-bought syrups and you can make any flavor! We made strawberry and pineapple syrups to pour over our shaved ice, but you can use other fresh fruit. I think watermelon, blackberry and raspberry would be absolutely delicious! Or maybe a combination of all of them? These fresh fruit syrups can be stored in the refrigerator for several days so you can make snow cones several days in a row from one batch.
The opinions and text are all mine. Keep cool this summer and save money with this super simple 3-ingredient Homemade Snow Cone Syrup recipe! I am ashamed to admit the amount of money our family has given to various ice cream trucks and shaved ice carts. Last year, our family decided it would be fun to add a cotton candy machine, popcorn popper, hot dog roller, and snow cone machine to our house. At first, I was kind of hesitant, because I had to find a place to put all of this stuff! Plus, would we really use this stuff?! Surprisingly, the answer was yes!
Plus a quick tip on making shaved ice! I first made them a couple of years ago for another site, and at the time, I accidentally bought about a thousand snow cone cups. I also stirred a little food colouring gel into the orange, apple and pineapple ones.
We are just days away from starting our summer break and a cold treat is something we like to enjoy often. I have made smoothies and done some juicing with it, but our latest creation is pure enjoyment! One amazing thing that this Ninja does, is that it makes snow, also known as shaved ice!!
