From June 24, 2009- With the weather getting hotter, seemed like a timely re-post for a refreshing summer treat.
Summer is here and time for a refreshing treat. To me summer means street fairs, and snowcones. I recently was playing around with my Cuisine Art and crushed some ice. And I had been watching a shaved ice vendor at the Burien Farmers' Market. I put two and two together , and came up with this recipe- You don’t need and Ice crusher or any other fancy gismos. All you need is a Cuisine Art or a blender and some syrup:
About 2 cups of Ice cubes
Some type of flavored syrup
Put ice cubes into a cuisine art or blender.
Pulse for about a minute.
Until Ice is crushed smooth
Scoop ice into a martini glass or cup or juice glass. I like to use martini glasses because, well I have them.
Pour syrup (about 1 jigger or one ounce) over the top. Enjoy!
Note: I used TORIANI SUGAR FREE SYRUP (raspberry flavor), I would imagine you could use any flavored syrup. But using sugar free makes it a guilt free treat!
And please - no comments on the messy kitchen! (I have been in school all week and had no time for cleaning!
