As a kid, shaved ice was a favorite. The bright (not so natural) colors, the delicious (not so natural) flavors, and the very fact that I was eating snow. Well, I thought I was. As an adult, I tend to steer clear of the preservatives that make those flavors so delicious. But that doesn’t mean I have to give up shaved ice! This recipe uses fresh fruit and organic teas to create some adult-oriented (and kid-friendly) shaved ice deliciousness, made with kiwi fruit and strawberries.
So, I will tell you, I did my kiwi and strawberry syrups separately.
Why? Well, what if I just want a kiwi flavored snow cone? Or just strawberry?
By doing them separately, I have four flavor options: kiwi, strawberry, kiwi-strawberry mix, and half kiwi and half strawberry!
Add the 4 cups of sugar and 3 cups of water to a small pot, and warm over a medium-low heat until the sugar has completely dissolved.
