Watermelon Snow Cone

For us, there’s nothing better than a cool refreshing treat on a warm summer day. When we were growing up our mouths would water when we’d see the ice cream truck selling snow cones and we’d long for one! Our mom would sometimes let us have a treat from the truck but always steered us towards other cold treats telling us that the snow cone’s sugary syrups on the ice were full of artificial dye and were just sugar. It turns out, mom was right (again!! Ahhh!—and funny enough, Tammy now does the same with her daughters!)—plus the typical snow cone will set you back 200-400 calories, depending on the size. So we’re happy to bring you one that’s just the opposite—all natural and only 30 calories!

This healthy twist on a snow cone is naturally flavored with the juice of a sweet watermelon and deliciously complemented with a hint of fresh lemon juice. This thirst-quenching delight is more than 50% water, so it will help to keep you hydrated!
