If you are feeling a little inspired and want to take these recipes one step further, all you’ll need is a snow cone or shaved ice machine. If you happen to already have one, perfect!
Place all of the ingredients from the recipe into a blender.
Instead of ice, add 1 cup of cold water.
Blend until liquid. Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid. About 4 hours.
When mixture is set, add the ice to your snow cone machine the same way you would with regular ice.
Congratulations! You have just made your very own ~grown-up~ snow cone!
