– 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.
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.
– Similar to Rainbows but usually made with only 2 or 3 flavors.
Combine any flavors for a unique treat.
