That’s it! How easy is that? Just pour the syrup into some sort of container. You can use a water bottle, a cup, whatever! My aunt sent us this cool pancake batter dispenser to use with our Baby Cake maker. It is great and I love finding new uses for things I already have. Put the syrup in the fridge to cool down for a few hours.
The syrup will be good for a week in the fridge – if it lasts that long!
Once it is ready, make your snow cones and pour this deliciousness over it! Check out my creamy, dreamy snow cone recipe here. You can even add a little fresh sliced fruit to top off the whole thing!
This is syrup is great with any fruit, blueberries, raspberries, etc. I wouldn’t use the coconut in those but feel free to play around.
Another syrup I found that I really liked was making these with Koolaid. Just follow the simple syrup directions above and then add a koolaid packet or two and cook. Strawberry and Cherry was a great combination. If you don’t have fresh fruit on hand, this is great option!
What combinations do you want to try out?
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar (or sugar substitute)
- 1 cup strawberries
- 2 teaspoons coconut extract
- In a pot over medium heat, mix water and sugar to make a simple sugar.
- Once sugar is dissolved, take out 1/4 cup of the simple sugar and add it and the strawberries to a blender. Blend completely.
- Mix the blended strawberries back into the simple syrup and stir in coconut extract. Let boil for 10 minutes.
- Pour into a container and let cool completely.
- Once it is ready, pour over snow or crushed ice.
When did you add the coconut? Did I miss it? And, what kind of coconut did you use? Thanks!
I used coconut extract (I think McCormick near vanilla and other extracts) and it was added after the strawberry puree is added to the simple syrup.
My daughter and I just made this. We did not have coconut extract, so we used about four table spoons of Goya cream of coconut. We also used about one cup of strawberries and half cup water and half cup agave. My seven year old says it’s the best snow cone she’s ever had.
Great substitutions, I’m glad it worked out for y’all. We love this recipe and the coconut flavor is a must to really be tiger’s blood. Thanks for letting me know, it makes my day when I hear things I create and share are used (and loved) by others! Thanks for coming back and letting me know!
Would this need to be stored in the fridge? How long would it be good for ya think?
I would for sure store this in the fridge. I’d say only to keep it about a week.

Thanks for the recipe.
We just put in a slush / smoothie machine at my school of 950 boys.
Today we did Acai, with Mango and Yogurt.
But remembering my childhood, this seemed to be the one that made us into men every time.
Cant wait to see their faces when I say Tiger Blood!
