Snow cones, sno cones, shaved ice – whatever you call them, these versions made with fresh fruit are far more flavorful than their artificial counterparts. Give them to the kids for a healthier frozen treat or serve them at a dinner party for a fun yet elegant dessert. It isn't difficult to make snow cones at home. An ice shaver (remember the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine?!) creates the fluffiest ice, but you can also make it granita-style or simply crush ice in the blender. These recipes all incorporate fresh fruit: • Coconut Snow Cones with Young Coconut and Pineapple-Ginger Syrup at Australian Gourmet Traveller (pictured) • Fresh Fruit Sno-Cones at Epicurious (pictured) • Raspberry-Blueberry Snow Cones at Epicurious • Cherry Snow Cone at Food52 • Trend Alert: Snow Cones at Martha Stewart Weddings Or make up your own version, using whatever fruit is in season, fresh juices, and homemade simple syrup infused with fruit or herbs.
