Hawaiian Shave Ice
For hundreds of years, Hawaiians have enjoyed shaved ice topped with fruit juice as a way to cool off in the hot weather. It is still a very popular treat made with many flavours and colours of syrup! Here in Canada, we can make it in the winter using clean snow or in the summer, we can grind ice in a food processor or blender and top it with healthier options like pureed fruit or juice.
1. Prepare fruit purees first and place in pourable measuring cups or small jugs.
2. Fill each bowl with ½ cup clean snow or shaved/ground ice.
3. Let children help top their shave ice with pureed fruit and/or juice. Enjoy before it melts!
(*clean means it is not close to roadways and high enough that it has not been contaminated by animals)
