I think I already mentioned that a dear friend of mine passed a vintage Snoopy Sno Cone Machine on to the kids a few weeks ago (thanks Amelia!) They love it but this toy comes with its frustrations. One is that the shaved ice melts so quickly when you pour flavoring/juice on it… and there’s a lot of sweat and labor that goes into shaving the ice (and it yields little for all that work.) We’ve discovered that freezing juice in ice cube trays first really helps. Not only are the ice cubes a bit softer and easier to grind away at, but the juice is already right there in the ice!
And once again, here are some ways to dress up and eat snow and shaved ice. Maybe we will try to freeze cream next!
