Homemade Fresh Fruit Shaved Ice is the perfect summer treat! Fresh fruit is so much healthier than those store-bought syrups and you can make any flavor!Homemade Fresh Fruit Shaved Ice is the perfect treat for all of these hot summer days! My kids absolutely love making shaved ice (aka snow cones), but I’m not a huge fan of whatever it is that is in those syrups you buy so I have been experimenting with fresh fruit for healthier options. There is still quite a bit of sugar in this recipe, so I’m not going to call it healthy, but there are only a few basic ingredients and a lot less chemicals! We love strawberry and pineapple, but you could try this with any of your favorite fruits and then you can keep the syrups in your fridge for several days.

HOMEMADE FRESH FRUIT SHAVED ICE

  • 1 1/2 cups fruit (strawberries, pineapple, etc)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • ice
  1. Place fruit in a blender or food processor and blend until pureed.
  2. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and add the lemon/lime juice, water and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until boiling. Turn heat down slightly and continue to simmer for 5 minutes before removing from heat.
  3. Let syrup cool completely and then strain with a fine mesh strainer to remove all seeds and pulp. You can use the syrup immediately or store in the refrigerator.
  4. Place ice in a blender to crush (or use a shaved ice machine if you have one)! Pour syrup over ice until well coated and enjoy!
