Y’all, I have truly upped my summer game with the teen set and it’s shaved ice for the win! Ah, who am I kidding? It’s not just the teens that are raving about it. I’ve been churning out shaved ice every day for the past nine days for anyone and everyone that comes over.
I have researched and considered all sorts of apparatus to make and serve icy cold treats, but never could pull the trigger. I read about the Kitchenaid Mixer Shave Ice attachment a few months ago and, since then, it popped up on any and every internet platform I use. I clicked through again a few weeks ago and this time read five star after five star review. I was sold!
It takes up virtually no storage space and works like a charm. It comes with four molds in which you need to freeze ice pucks. I keep a gallon zip top full of the blocks in the freezer ready to go!
I started with my own homemade syrups and a raspberry syrup we can’t ever seem to reach the bottom of. Mint + Raspberry are my absolutely favorite. Lavender + Mint is also amazing.
When I had such success with the attachment, I decided to splurge on some real, fun syrups. Order direct from Hawaiian Shaved Ice and get the flavors you love. Here’s what has been most popular:
- Sour cherry
- Blue Raspberry
- Pina Colada
- Tiger’s Blood
I also highly recommend ordering the bottle pourers and protective nite caps too. They are 99 cents each and make the bottles so much easier to use.
My absolute favorite combos are Sour Cherry + Pina Colada, Tiger’s Blood + Pina Colada and Sour Cherry + Tiger’s Blood.
Nerds are my favorite candy and on a whim I put out a little bowl for topping our creations. Well, that was just another slam dunk. The Nerds are SO good in the shaved ice.
Happy First Day of Summer!! If you need me…. I’ll be shaving ice.
