Every Thursday after school, there is a snow cone truck parked at my girls’ school.  I bet you can only imagine the questions out of every child’s mouth every Thursday the second they are released from their classes.  Let me give you a hint..it’s not, “Can I start my homework as soon as we get home??”

I love snow cones as much as any child, but I’m not overly joyed at the thought of spending four dollars per child for a small cup filled with shaved ice and pure liquid sugar.

Personally I would eat them all day long they’re so cold and sweet.  My children on the other hand are bouncing off of the walls the second that sweet syrup hits their tongues.

My solution!?  This homemade shaved ice deliciousness in a cup right here!

Have I mentioned before how much I love my food processor?  If I could only have one small kitchen appliance I would choose my food processor.  Shocked?!  I know!  I love my stand mixer, but if I really worked hard enough I could stir things.  I would have really buff arms actually whipping all that frosting up. Perhaps it’s not a bad idea.

There is no way however, that I could perform the job of my food processor.  So guess who happens to be the star of this recipe?! Drum roll please!  My food processor!!!!  (How did you guess?!)

Dump a bunch of ice inside a food processor and what do you get? You get shaved ice!! How fun is that?!

Mix in a little cream of coconut and you have yourself a wonderful, delicious, amazing, coconutty icy dream.

Did I stop there though?! No you’re right.  I was on a roll and it just kept coming!!  Frozen strawberries in a food processor?!  And you get a lovely frozen strawberry addition to the coconut shaved ice.

Yum.

I don’t think I need to tell you how amazing this cold treat was today (the temperature high for today 97).

You are going to love how deliciously sweet and refreshing these frozen treats are.  I can’t wait to find other flavors!!

    I puffy heart love my food processor, too. It is such an incredible kitchen appliance! Haha, yes, I am so with you – who thought a glass of liquid sugar was worth the $4?! Homemade is definitely better! Especially when it involves strawberries … mmm!

    I cringe every time I hear the popsicle truck come by our house because our kids always ask the same question. My food processor is one of my favorite appliances…but I never thought to crush ice with it. Mad props to you for this crazy awesome homemade snow cone. I am definitely excited to make these this summer!
