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.
