  • 2 cups (10oz/300g) ice
  • 1 cup (5oz/150g) raspberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup (5oz/150g) mango (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup (5oz/150g) blueberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup (5oz/150g) pineapple (frozen or fresh)
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar per fruit (depending on the sweetness of your fruit)
  1. In a medium saucepan combine the sugar and fruit.
  2. Simmer until the fruit has softened and the sugar dissolved, roughly 3-4 minutes.
  3. Transfer your fruit mixture to a food processor and blend the fruit into a smooth puree. If you don't have a processor try passing it through a fine sieve.
  4. Once pureed strain over a bowl to remove any seeds or bits from the fruit. If you find the syrup a bit too thick at this stage thin it out with some juice or a little water. Store the syrups in the fridge for up to 7 days. 

  5. Place ice cubes in a blender and pulse to create fine shaved ice. Store in the freezer if you are not using it straight away.
  6. Scoop your shaved ice into serving dish of your choice and pack it tight together. Pour over your fruit syrup and enjoy immediately!
  7. To make a rainbow snow cone, pour your individual flavors into a squirt bottle or jug with a spout. Pour each flavor in a line across our scoop of ice, creating a rainbow effect. Enjoy Immediately!!!
