Many of us have fond memories of cold fruity snow cones, so sticky, so sweet, so much melting syrup running down your hand as you held the paper cup under the blazing sun. Make your own tasty cold snow cones with this recipe for Strawberry and Mint Slush. With instructions for making your own sweet strawberry and mint syrup, all you need is crushed ice for this refreshing summertime treat. Be sure to use fresh strawberries in order to get the most sweet berry flavor.

  • 10 strawberries (ripe)
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon
  • salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
  • 1 bag ice

Directions

  1. In a sauce pan, place the strawberries, mint leaves, lemon juice, a pinch of salt, water and sugar.
