That crazy kid addiction to the sweetness of crushed ice.  Is it the bright colors?  The freezing temperature in your mouth?  The cute shaped ‘coned cups’? Maybe a little bit of all of this….
So, we have been making them at home since I bought my new blender, the Ninja.  Blends and crushes ice into a powder snow consistency.  Then, we pour/drizzle 100% fruit juice on top and what you have is a super cool treat with no food dyes or high fructose corn syrup.

We have used these juices:
Strawberry Banana and Vegetable Juice
Orange Juice
Cranberry Juice
Grape Juice
(pre-mized juices or frozen concentrate)

*If you use frozen concentrate (make sure it’s 100% juice without added sugar) – then you can mix it with 1 part juice and 1 part water for a deeper colored and sweeter ‘syrup’ for your snow cones.

Its fun to put the juice in squeeze bottles and let the kids do it themselves, mixing whichever color or flavors they wish.
