Make Ice Shavers like a Pro!

Featured Recipe

Rainbows Try using two to four different colored syrups on your shaved ice to create a unique colorful rainbow effect.  Pour syrups in a straight line, one at a time, starting from one side of your shaved ice cup to the other.   Some colored syrups such as yellow and blue will mix to make green when overlapped.  A favorite!

Cream Flavors Give your favorite shaved ice syrup a creamy flavor and texture with the addition of Evaporated Milk.  In a separate container, combine 7 ounces of flavored syrup to 1 ounce of evaporated milk.  Stir well and pour the mix on top of your shaved ice to give it a rich, creamy texture.  Works best if the creamy mix is chilled before use.  This recipe is often used with Vanilla, Banana, Peach, Strawberry, Dreamsycle, Pina Colada, Coconut, Strawberry Cheesecake, Almond and Egg Custard.  Test your favorite syrup with evaporated milk!  To make a quart of cream flavor combine 28 ounces of your favorite flavored syrup with 4 ounces of Evaporated Milk.  Once evaporated milk is added be sure to keep the mix refrigerated.  The mixture will usually will last 5 to 7 days.

Mixers Similar to Rainbows but usually made with only 2 or 3 flavors.   Combine any flavors for a unique treat.  Some of the most popular mixers are listed below:

            Strawberry-Banana                     Cherry-Cola

            Strawberry-Kiwi                          Cherry-Vanilla

            Orange-Pineapple                      Banana-Bubble Gum

            Kiwi-Lime                                  Cherry Blaster (Cherry and Black Cherry)

Dipped Delights These shaved ice treats are very popular at neighborhood stands across the country.  Simply add a scoop of your favorite ice cream to the bottom of any cup, add shaved ice and top off with your favorite shaved ice syrup.  Eating the shaved ice and ice cream at the same time is great!   Try one and you will be hooked!

Snow Shakes Instead of a milkshake try a snow shake!  Fill a 16 ounce cup full of shaved ice.  Add 3 to 4 ounces of your favorite shaved ice syrup along with 3 to 4 ounces of evaporated milk.  Stir or blend well!  Add more ice for thicker snow shakes.  Snow shakes are a great treat year round!

Toppings You might have seen toppings added to shaved ice at your local neighborhood shaved ice business.  The most popular topping used is Sweetened Condensed Milk which can be found in your local grocery store baking aisle.   Simply open the can of condensed milk and pour over a cup of flavored shaved ice.  Be careful because it can get messy.  Sometimes the Condensed Milk is thinned with some Evaporated Milk, usually in a 1 to 1 ratio.  Other popular toppings include whipped cream, marshmallow cream, chocolate syrup, cherry topping, strawberry topping, caramel topping and chopped nuts. Try any of these toppings to create shaved ice treats like a pro!
