How to Make Snow Ice
One of the special things about Taiwanese Snow Ice is that the flavor is mixed right in with the ice! This is different than Snow Cones or Hawaiian Shaved Ice that shave a flavorless ice block and then add fruit syrups to it.
Snow Ice Ingredients:
Flavored Snow Ice Powder 200 g (1¼ cups)
Sugar 100 g (½ cup)
Warm Milk (around 70° C/158° F) 825 ml (3½ cups)
Cold Milk 825 ml (3½ cups)
How to Make Snow Ice:
First, start by pouring the Warm Milk into a large bowl.
Second, slowly add the Flavored Snow Ice Powder and Sugar to the Warm Milk.
Third, mix thoroughly (with a handheld blender) for 2 minutes (make sure the powder and sugar are completely dissolved).
Forth, add the Cold Milk and mix it again for 1 minute.
Fifth, pour the mixture into your freezing container and let it sit for 1 hour or until it is cool.
Sixth, put the container into the freezer and freeze until completely frozen.
How to Shave Snow Ice:
There are two type of snow ice shavers that you can use. A single serve model which is smaller and doesn’t require a large freezer or a large block model which requires a special freezer.
How to Freeze Snow Ice:
This will depend on what type of Snow Ice Shaver you have. A large lock shaver need traditional snow ice blocks that are about 5.5″ x 5.5″ and require a special snow ice freezer with a minimum temperature of -25° C/-13° F.
