mini sno cones {a healthy snack}

We are at the height of berry-pickin' season and I can't think of a better snack to reward {bribe!} your little helpers with.


Crush ice in a blender unless you are fortunate enough to have THE.SNOOPY.SNO.CONE.MAKER.

Take extra fruit and add a bit of lemon juice and a tiny bit of sugar and let it sit. Mash berries and strain for juice.

I put mine into a squeeze bottle with a little nozzle.

Use ice cream cone scooper to form crushed ice into dish.
Top with fruit syrup.
Another idea for quick and fast syrup without the HFCS: MONIN or TORANI syrup.

Your little berry pickers will be eager little beavers to help pick berries again...GUARANTEED!

  1. Oh this does look tasty! Fresh berries are on sale too. Thanks for sharing.


  2. These look sooooooooooooo yummy! Its like a million degrees at my house so this sounds so good right now!

  3. Love the idea of using fresh berries and real sugar, not corn syrup. I might need to invest in a little snow cone ice crusher. Looks refreshing!

  4. Those look delicious! MMMM

    I just left you an award at my blog to pass on some love! Don't feel obligated to post about it if you find awards annoying or anything though, okay?

    Just wanted you to know I love you and your blog and you sincerely inspire me.

    Lots of love,

  5. I Just absolutely love these
