3/4 cup of berries
1/4 cup of water (if berries are frozen I add less)
2 T. of honey (may add more or less..depends on your desired sweetness )
Combine berries and water over a low medium heat.
Simmer 5-10 minutes until berries are soft. If your berries are frozen like mine usually are it may take a bit longer to heat through.
Add desired amount of honey to prepared berries. Purée using an immersion blender

Have you every made your own snow cones? Summer is just getting started and we are excited to ‘dive in’ . Here at “My Happy Homestead” there are some long standing traditions that have just become a staple –
Yes, making our own snow cones is really one of our ‘must do‘ homestead activities– no food dyes, no artificial ingredients- just memories. If there’s time in your schedule this one is super quick, easy, and inexpensive.
Homemade Dye Free Snow Cones
Other Supplies Needed;
Snow cone cups and straws (we have these
and love them)
Blender or snow cone machine
Prepare syrup. Simply combine 2 parts juice concentrate to 1 part water. You can also make your own berry sauce if preferred-it is just heavenly on a hot day. Thin berry sauce as needed with a bit of water. (Our most recent snow cones were orange pineapple…yummmmy!)
Shave ice in blender or if you have a cute little snow cone machine
then use that. Using an ice cream scoop put desired amount of shaved ice in each of your snow cone cups-carefully pour syrup on top and dive in!
