. . . You make a snow cone!
Okay, admittedly, this may not be quite as good as the red caboose's Snow Cones, but they were a fun, sweet treat and made with real fruit!
We took about 2 cups of frozen mixed berries (thawed) and threw them into a saucepan with about 1/2 c. water, pinch of salt, and sugar to taste. (I'm really not sure how much I used, somewhere between 1/2 and 1 c., I'd guess. If you are anti-sugar, I'm sure you could use your sweetener of choice.) Bring it to a boil while mashing fruit with a potato masher. Boil for about 3 minutes.
Throw it in the blender (or since it's hot, use an immersion blender) and puree.
Use a food sieve to remove the small seeds from the juice. (If you do not have one of these nifty doo-dads, I think your juice would still be tasty with seeds. We leave seeds in when we make our frozen yogurt, and I prefer it that way.)
Cool your syrup in the fridge for at least an hour.
Go outside and gather your CLEAN snow. Unfortunately, I have no pics of this fun activity, since it was dark when we attempted it. Our front yard snow is topped with a layer of ice, so we had to really put some muscle behind our little spoon shovels, but we managed to get mostly grass-free bowls full of snow.
Top with cooled syrup and enjoy!
