Hate all the chemicals in store-bought snow cone syrup?  It’s easy to make your own!  This raspberry peach homemade snow cone syrup recipe is made with real fruit and has no additives or preservatives.  This is one summertime treat that you can feel good about serving to your kids!

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 diy 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 snow cone syrup with real fruit. This 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 to make raspberry peach real fruit homemade snow cone syrup

Raspberry Peach DIY Snow Cone Syrup Recipe Instructions

Thaw the fruit overnight in your refrigerator.  Add thawed fruit and agave nectar (or maple syrup) 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.

Condiment squeeze bottles make great containers to hold your homemade snow cone syrup.

Using a funnel, transfer your real fruit snow cone syrup to a squeeze bottle to make it easy to squirt over the ice.  These condiment squeeze bottles are inexpensive and are great to use for snow cone syrup bottles!

Unlike commercial syrup, this diy snow cone syrup recipe doesn’t always 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.

The Victorio manual ice shaver is just perfect for making snow cones for your kids.

For making snow cones, I highly recommend this Victorio Crank Ice Shaver.  It’s non-electric, so your kids will get a kick out of turning the crank and shaving the ice themselves.  It comes with 3 ice molds that make round discs of ice that make enough shaved ice for a couple of snow cones. Each ice mold comes with a lid, which is nice so you can stack them in your freezer.

The Pampered Chef one is also a good manual ice shaver machine, but they aren’t making it anymore.  I had mine for 18 years, until I lost it in a move 🙁 You can sometimes find the Pampered Chef ones at garage sales or in thrift stores.

You can certainly serve these snow cones in a small bowl, but for a true snow cone experience, I like using actual snow cone cups.  You can either get paper ones or reusable snow cone cups.

I ended up going with these silicone snow cone cups since they can be used over and over again, plus they come with a fun swirly straw!  Reusable snow cone cups are a great investment if your kids love snow cones as much as mine do!

The nice thing about making this real fruit homemade snow cone syrup recipe is that is that you can easily adapt it to other flavors by using different fruit.   We have tried watermelon, strawberry banana, and blueberry peach.  Yummy!  Don’t be afraid to get creative.   You are limited only by your imagination!

My kids love it when I make them snow cones with real fruit.  It’s the perfect afternoon treat to cool off on those hot sticky summer days.  Plus it’s a sweet treat that you can serve your child with no guilt.

    I dont have a ice shaver machine, but my fridge does dispense crushed ice. I am going to whip up a batch of the syrup and try it out. Thanks for sharing! What a great hot weather treat!

    My daughter just bought her cousin’s Snow Cone machine last weekend. I’ve been contemplating the syrups and how unhealthy they are. This is a fantastic alternative!

    I just bought those silicone snow cone cups on Monday – they’re great!!!

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).

    Wishing you a lovely day.

    What a great idea. There are so many chemicals in our foods, and it makes our bodies have a hard time utilizing our food as fuel. This is perfect! I love that you can make different flavors, as fruit comes into season you can have the freshest, cheapest options! And not worry about what the kids are consuming!

    What a fabulous treat without all the chemicals! I had a shaved ice maker many, many years ago. Now I wish I hadn’t given it away… Shaved ice cone are such a great summer treat!
