Want to quench your thirst and reward your sweet tooth at the same time? Simply whip up a few of these delicious and fruity snowcones before your next summer get-together.

The geniuses behind the YouTube channel FamiLeague have developed a fool-proof recipe that allows you to whip up snowcones that are even better than the ones from your local neighborhood stand. Instead of buying those massive bottles of pre-made flavorings, which are filled with high fructose corn syrup, this recipe uses natural ingredients to bring lots of color and sweetness to your summertime treat.

There are a few tricks to making a great snow cone, but this version is reliant on the use of agave nectar. Agave is a great alternative to corn syrup, and helps bring out the natural flavors of the fruit. Although this recipe shows you how to make strawberry and blueberry flavored cones, you can also try out lime, lemon, watermelon, cherry or pretty much any fruit you desire.

If you’re having friends or family over for a backyard barbecue this summer, this is a great option for a light and refreshing dessert or mid-afternoon snack. Just make sure you keep your blender handy, because your guests will definitely be asking for seconds.
