Easy Family Recipes: Easy Fruity Shaved Ice

sized snowconeBoy oh boy — do I have a treat for you today! Do you or your kids love shaved ice with those super yummy, fruity syrups? Today, I’ve got not one, but four fantastic shaved ice syrup recipes that you can make in your very own kitchen in just a few minutes. If you don’t have a shaved ice maker, no worries! Simply crush ice to a snowy texture in your blender (if you’ve got an ice crusher setting, of course) or by wrapping a plastic bag of ice in a kitchen towel and smashing it with a rolling pin or mallet. This can be a super fun project for kids, so long as they have adult supervision.

You can even store syrups in small squeeze bottles (I’ve been picking up 6 for $5 at Sam’s Club recently) and mix and match flavors in each shaved ice. Create layers of color and flavor in the ice, then gobble them up before the creation melts. You’ll have a different summer treat every time!
