One more Sno-Cone Trading Swap of the Summer…

Join Amelia and I in the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club Kitchen as we share one more Sno-Cone Trading Swap recipe for before summer ends…

Cantaloupe Freeze 

This recipe makes for a great Sno-cone trade!

1 cup Price Chopper lemonade concentrate

1 cantaloupe (NuVal 93)

1 tablespoon Price Chopper honey

1 teaspoon Price Chopper vanilla extract

  1. Make the lemonade as directed on the container before measuring the 1 cup needed for the recipe.
  2. Cut the cantaloupe in half and remove the seeds with a spoon.  Slice the cantaloupe, remove the rinds and dice the melon into small chunks.
  3. Place the cantaloupe, lemonade, honey and vanilla extract into a blender and blend the ingredients together well.
  4. Pour the blended ingredients into an 8 x 8 glass dish and place it in a freezer.

Cantaloupe freeze is a version of a granita.  You can let it begin to freeze and set the time to scrape the sides every 30 minutes to create the shaved ice effect. Or you can cheat like I frequently do, let it freeze solid, approximately 1 ½ – 2 hours, and then begin the scraping process with a fork to create the shaved ice like a sno-cone.

NOTE: Cantaloupe is such a soft fruit that little hands can assist by cutting it into chunks by using a plastic knife and still be a BIG part of the process.
