Creating Shave Ice Cream Flavors

5 Jul

Many business owners opt to offer the sweetened condensed milk as a topping, also called a snow cap. It gives Hawaiian shave ice a velvety, cream texture that we especially love on root beer. YUM! But if you want to add a little something different to the menu, cream flavors can be a fun option. You can charge a little extra for the specialty flavors to offset costs and rotate a different flavor each week!

To make a quart of your homemade cream flavors:

Pour 4 oz. of evaporated milk to an empty quart bottle

Top off with your preferred flavor syrup (citrus or sour flavors are not recommended)

That’s it! Just be sure to keep refrigerated and cool 😉

Now if you would like to make an especially creamy syrup which will create a texture similar to that of ice milk, try the following recipe:

To make a quart of your homemade “ice cream” flavors:

Pour 2 ounces of syrup concentrate with one can of sweetened condensed milk into an empty quart bottle
Fill the quart bottle the rest of the way with milk.

That’s it! Also, keep refrigerated and cool.

*** Careful not to use evaporated milk or condensed milk interchangeably. Although they’re similar in consistency, condensed milk is 40-45% sugar, while evaporated milk is not sweetened. ***

Our favorite flavors to create cream flavors from are strawberry, coconut, and coffee. But be creative, the possibilities are endless!
