Who else is loving all of our ice cream recipes from our summer celebration party? The last recipe we are going to share from it is one that is sure to cool you off and help end your summer on a tasty note! This party recipe uses two popular summer treats and combines them to give you the best of both! You know those drink recipes where you add in a fruit bar to give some extra flavor as the bar melts into the drink? Well we’re putting a spin on those with shaved ice! But don’t worry, #TheresAnIceCreamForThat, and it’s Nestlé’s super tasty Outshine Tangerine Fruit Bars are going to be the perfect bars to add to the drink. This was definitely my favorite sweet snack from our celebration, hopefully you’ll love it too!
We decided to stick to a theme of natural ingredients, since that’s what Outshine is all about, and made our own all-natural syrup for the shaved ice using real fruit! We chose the two most classic flavors, strawberry and lemon, but I’m dying to make more with some crazy fruit. Dragon-fruit, mango, or pineapple watermelon shaved ice anyone?! I definitely want to make a rainbow one with every type of fruit too!
Outshine Fruit Bars
Blender/shaved ice machine
1 1/2 cup fruit (we used strawberries and pineapple)
2 tbsp of lemon juice
3/4 cup of water
3/4 cup of agave nectar
1. Blend the fruit, then add the resulting puree and other ingredients to a saucepan.
2. Cook on medium heat until it boils, then reduce it slightly and let simmer for 5 minutes.
3. Let syrup cool and then strain for seeds and pulp. Now you can use your syrup!
4. Using your shaved ice machine/blender, make your shaved ice and scoop it into your cup.
5. Place your preferred Outshine Fruit Bar into the shaved ice, garnish with a slice of fruit, and pour your syrup over the ice. Enjoy!
Now, I don’t know about you, but this is my preferred way to eat fruit! Who wouldn’t want their food in rainbow form?! 😉 If you want to make a few shaved ice cups for your friends, you can save $2 when you buy 3 Outshine or other Nestlé participating ice cream brands with this coupon. All these amazing treats from our party, I wish we could just celebrate ice cream all year long! Maybe we will! Which of our summer ice cream recipes did you love the most?
