Some days are just too hot for thinking. On those days, it’s best to stay cool inside and out.
There’s nothing better than a snow cone on days that are so hot, you could fry an egg on the sidewalk.
No one needs hot temperatures to enjoy this easy, icy treat, but we will take the excuse! As kids, there were always a few snow cone shacks around town. We remember flavors like Coconut Cream, Green Apple, and Tiger’s Blood. However delicious, many of those flavors are filled with crazy additives, toxic food coloring and more corn syrup than anyone wishes to consume. If you have a blender, you can make your very own healthy snow cones at home!
These are so easy to make at home. Flavors are still limitless but a little healthier. We decided to make our snow cones one of our favorite flavors – lemon! To make these as easy as possible – use natural store-bought lemonade or other juice flavors. Look out for naturally sweetened juices at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s or any health foods store. Kids of all ages will love this treat with their favorite juice!
- 3 cups Ice
- Organic, Natural Lemonade
- Blend up ice in a blender until the ice is soft and fluffy. Pack some ice into a snow cone holder. And then pour enough juice over the top to flavor the ice. Enjoy!
