Did you know that the Blendtec is the only blender on the market that can crush ice into a fine snow without adding water or any other steps? That's right! And it is done in a matter of seconds! We'll tell you how to turn ice into snow. We also have three mouth-watering homemade, fresh fruit syrups to try on your snow cones - so much better than paying for snow cones with artificial flavors!

How to make snow cone/shaved ice in Blendtec:

  • FourSide jar: 3 cups ice
  • WildSide+ jar: 5 cups ice
  1. Add ice cubes to jar and secure lid. Blend on a medium speed for 7-10 seconds or until desired consistency is reached.
*For best results, use ice cubes directly from freezer that have not begun to melt.

Instructions for all syrups:

  1. Add ingredients to FourSide or WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Select "Syrups" (if you don't have the "Syrups" cycle, use "Soup" or "Hot" cycle or blend on a high speed for 90 seconds).
  2. Add fruit puree to Medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes to thicken.
  3. Remove from heat and place in heat-proof container with lid (we used canning jars). Chill in refrigerator until cool or ready to serve.
Pour approximately 2 tbsp syrup over every 1/2 cup ice and serve. Enjoy!

    I haven’t tried these recipes but I have made a “snow cone” with strawberries, lime juice and honey syrup. I just made it up as I went along so not positive, but I would guess about 3 or 4 cups of ice, 1.5 limes juiced, 4 strawberries, and about 1/2 cup of chilled honey syrup (I keep it in fridge for ice tea. Frozen strawberry limeade!

    Another way to avoid refined sugar…. I have also heard that juice concentrate found in the freezer section works well. Something high in natural sugars like pineapple or grape would probably works best.

    Love these syrup ideas. I’ve made snow cone ice in my Blentec several times but used the store bought syrups or fruit juice. Can’t wait to try these!

    It will stay good for up to a week.

    Hi Karen,
    You can use a different sweetener, such as Truvia. Start with half the amount and add more, if needed, to get desired sweetness. Changing the sweetener will also change the consistency of the syrup.
