Shaved ice is one of my husband's favorite things to eat. I know I have talked about cheesecakes in the past and have certainly mentioned his fondness of meat. Yet, his "go-to, he wants a snack, what can he have that is healthy" idea of a treat is shaved ice. He loved it that I made him some too.
The Strawberry Peach Shaved Ice is made from real fruit. The best part it is mostly fruit. In fact, the only other ingredients are water and a little sugar.
How To Make Shaved Ice
The process of making this shaved ice is simple and you don't even need a shaved ice machine or anything like that. I simply used my food processor, but you can use a blender as well. I also used a combination of frozen strawberries from my garden and a package of fresh strawberries from the store. I wanted to add another layer of flavor so I added in the peach. You could also use blueberries, mango or raspberries in this ice. It all would be great.
Trying to find healthy after school snacks aren't really hard, but they can get boring. Apple slices, peanut butter crackers, grapes, carrot sticks are all great. However, I enjoy coming up with different ideas for the kids to have. Shaved ice made with real fruit is the perfect summer or after school snack. It will take you minutes to make too (not counting freeze time). Make up a batch of this in the morning and by the afternoon, you family will enjoy a fun treat.
