Raspberry Peach Real Fruit Homemade Snow Cone Syrup Recipe

By | June 19, 2012

It seems like every store I go into lately has a display of ice cream makers, ice shavers, and snow cone syrup.  My kids love snow cones during the summer.  However I don’t love the ingredients in the commercial syrups – tons of high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavorings, artificial coloring, and other chemicals.  No thank you!  Most homemade snow cone syrup recipes out there on the internet aren’t much better as they call for packets of Kool-Aid and tons of refined sugar.

Fortunately it is quite easy to make your own snow cone syrup with real fruit.  Today I would like to share my Raspberry Peach Homemade Snow Cone Syrup Recipe.  (By the way, if you have seen this post before, I first published it over at Miss Organic’s Kitchen.  Running several blogs got to be too much so I am moving everything over here.)

This homemade snow cone syrup recipe contains just 3 ingredients, so it is simple to make.   The raspberries give it such a pretty color.  Plus, I just love the taste combination of Raspberries and Peaches.  Yum!

Ingredients

  • 1 – 10 oz bag of frozen raspberries (organic preferably)
  • 1 – 10 oz bag of frozen peaches (organic preferably)
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar

Thaw the fruit overnight in your refrigerator.  Add thawed fruit and agave nectar to a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.  If you have a high speed blender such as a Vitamix, you may be able to get those raspberry seeds crushed enough so the syrup is smooth.  Otherwise, strain the liquid to remove the seeds.

Transfer syrup to a squeeze bottle to make it easy to squirt over the ice.

Unlike commercial syrup, this doesn’t soak completely into the ice.  So I recommend layering ice and syrup.  Or you can do what I usually do, and mix it in a bowl until well combined and then scoop the mixture into snow cone cups.  Store any leftover syrup in the refrigerator and use within a week or so.

For making snow cones, I highly recommend the Pampered Chef Ice Shaver.  It’s non-electric, so my kids get a kick out of turning the crank and shaving the ice themselves.  I got mine 18 years ago and it still is in great condition!  I am not sure if Pampered Chef still makes these ice shavers,  but you can find them on eBay or Amazon.

I typically serve this to my kids in a small bowl.  For a true snow cone experience though, you can find the paper snow cone cups this time of year.  Although I haven’t been able to find them around here, there are also silicone snow cone cups that you can reuse over and over again.  They are a great investment if your kids love snow cones as much as mine do.

If you try this Raspberry Peach Real Fruit Homemade Snow Cone Syrup Recipe, you will have to let me know if you liked it.  The nice thing about this healthy snow cone syrup recipe is that you can easily adapt it to other flavors by using different fruit.  It can also be made with other sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, etc.  You can also make the snow cone syrup with fresh fruit.  It’s a yummy summertime treat you can serve your child with no guilt.  Enjoy!

    You are right., Pampered Chef doesn’t have them anymore, but Hamilton Beach makes two kinds, one for $19.99 and the other for $29.99. All kids love snowcones and some of us big kids do too!

      Thanks for letting me know that Pampered Chef doesn’t make them anymore. That’s a shame! I absolutely love mine. I think you can still get one on eBay or Amazon though.

    Hi!
    Just came across your blog!
    Seeing the picture of the snow cone brought back a flood of memmories for me!

    I remember my snowman snow cone machine, and how I loved to make treats for the whole family.

    We are talking…a long time ago! lol

    I just had to use simple store bought flavored fruit syrup…wow…that syrup with peaches and raspberries looks sooo scrumptious!

    Great blog and lovely pics!
    Regards,
    Lois

      Lois, I had a Snoopy Snow Cone Machine. Remember those? My brother and I had so much fun making snow cones with that in the summer. We would make syrup from Kool-aid packets and sugar. Good times!

        Hi Jen,

        Sorry to bother you, but for some reason I am getting notification from Google in my Webmaster Controls, that I (supposedly) have:

        1367 backlinks form your site via: htt​p:/​/ah​ear​tfu​llo​flo​ve.​com​/ra​spb​err​y-p​eac​h-r​eal​-fr​uit​-ho​mem​ade​-sn​ow-​con​e-s​yru​p-r​eci​pe/

        and via: htt​p:/​/ah​ear​tfu​llo​flo​ve.​com​/co​ngr​atu​lat​ion​s-t​o-o​ur-​upr​int​ing​-po​ste​r-g​ive​awa​y-w​inn​er/

        I am not even sure how this happens, (I had it with another blog I had posted on a while back), and I don’t know how to fix it…lol

        Perhaps if you would delete my comments on those pages?

        Why the high number, I don’t know?!

        Any ideas?
        I would like to get this fixed, because Google seems to think this is an issue with my site? lol

        Anyways, can you let me know?

        Kind regards,
        Lois

    Yum! Great recipe!
    We had no a snow cone machine when I was growing up – we put ice cubes in a bag and used a hammer on them. Best if you used small-cube molds. Takes a bit of practice but you can get it near to like shaved ice machines at a cost of a baggie.
    And, as a mom now, one less machine on the shelves.

    Wow, thank you for a great recipe! Finally one that doesn’t include all the artificial stuff or Kool-aid. Since it’s summer, I was able to find fresh fruit instead of frozen, and it was a huge hit. Thanks again.

    I was looking for a recipe for snow cone syrup that calls for better ingredients. Thanks so much.

    I was wondering could you tell me where you got those squeeze bottles?

      I got mine at Walmart, I think. They are actually supposed to be for ketchup and mustard but they work great for the snow cone syrup.
