Homemde Snow Cones

Eli's First Snow Cone

 

The other day it occurred to me to try my hand at making homemade snow cones.  We are blessed to own an incredible blender which attaches to our Bosch Mixer.  It easily crushes or pulverizes just about anything.  I simply placed ice in the blender and crushed it using the momentary speed.  (I’m not sure if this will work on every blender so use caution.)  Then we added a simple syrup that I had prepared beforehand. 

 
 

I think he is hooked on Mom's homemade snow cones!

 

Snow Cone Syrup Recipe:
1 pack Koolaid-your choice of flavor
2 c. sugar
1 c. water
Mix all ingredients in a medium saucepan dissolving sugar as you stir.  Bring to a boil and remove from heat.  Allow syrup to cool and store refrigerated.  We like to store  in an Snapple Bottle.  Pour over crushed ice and enjoy. 
 

Getting serious about his snow cone.

This is a super cheap alternative to snow cones or even purchasing the snow cone syrup from the grocery store.  Fresh fruit could also be used in place of the koolaid packet or 1/2 t. of flavoring (the bottle kind you use in cooking).
