Sweet Cream Shaved Ice - get the recipe at barefeetinthekitchen.com

Sweet cream drizzled over fluffy shaved ice creates the most refreshing treat I could’ve imagined. I haven’t had a snow cone in years and this is certain to be the very best snow cone you’ve ever tasted. My kids went nuts over it and I grinned imagining all the possibilities. I’m giving away the same shaved ice machine I own to one of you today, so be sure to read to the bottom of the post and enter to win!

The very same day that my friend Meseidy shared a recipe for Puerto Rican shaved ice, I ordered a Shaved Ice Machine. She made a simple snow cone sound so refreshing, I had to try it for myself. (I still can’t believe how excited I am over this simple gadget!)

This little machine has already provided a heck of a lot of fun for my kids and I both. On a day when the temp is well past 100 degrees, it’s pure heaven to sit and sip on spoonfuls of sweet shaved ice. I’m giddy over the possibilities for this machine all summer long and I want one of you to join the shaved ice fun with me!

    I'm always a fan of strawberry kiwi but the sweet cream recipe sounds amazing. I think it would remind me of making snow ice cream in the winter.

  2. Donna C. says

    I'd like to try your recipe, but I also wonder what it would be like with simple grape juice? Watermelon juice?

  3. Karen Wood says

    Well I'm a big sucker for vanilla, sooooooo…. vanilla. I can top that with any other flavor even in addition to the sweet cream.

  4. Jessica DeMay says

    Is it weird that I kinda want to just eat the shaved ice plain? I've asked for snow cones that way! A coconut La Croix would also be delicious poured over it!

  5. Blue Angel says

    Lately I just use Natural Bliss Sweet Cream by coffeeMate made into ice cubes that I put into a zippy and crush with a hsmmer! Then z wee bit of a drizzle of blueberry puree from fresh blueberries of the garden , may put a dollop of creme fraiche on top eh! Thank you for this opportunity to put the hammer down as it were for Shaved Ice☆

  6. Annette says

    The first flavor I'd make is ice cream flavor and I'd top it with sweetened condensed milk. This has been my favorite flavor combination since I was a child.

  7. Lorraine Wilkinson says

    I am so excited to find the snow cream flavor recipe.!!!! Now I’ve got to decide on an ice shaver machine!!! My granddaughters will be spending some time with me this summer😍 They will be so excited!!! Thank you for sharing the recipe!!

  8. Shelly Tabor says

    Oh wow me and my family tried this and the grandkids are crazy over this recipe the sweet cream is a very good hit it had a great flavor I also tried it with almond flavor it was also good I will continue to keep this recipe I did however have to add a little more of the sweet creamed milk the heavy cream to get it a little thicker the way we like it and sweeter but it was most definitely a hit.

  9. Janet Higgins says

    I would diffidently make the sweet cream flavor first. Makes me think of the snow ice cream we used to make as kids, but even better. I bought a very powerful blender hoping to use it to make Sno Cones, but it just can’t produce snow.

  10. Deborah Zaber says

    This is just what I order when I get a snow cone…it is by far the best ever… when I drive up the lady’s know just what I want…ice with cream…this would be the prefect machine for me

  11. Shaleana smith says

    Id make one I had as a child, vanilla ice cream at the bottom of the cup topped with shaved ice then drizzled with vanilla syrup and a few splashes of heavy cream, homemade ice cream flavored, been craving this for 20 years5 stars

  12. Kathy Alcala says

    This is definitely a cool summer treat! I did root beer syrup with sweetened condensed milk on top and it tasted just like a root beer float!5 stars

  13. KaDeidre Bell says

    An orchid cream vanilla icee will be my first icee. My grandmother used to take me and my cousins as kids over 25 years ago to an icee stand that is still in business so I cant wait to make her and my kids and family their first one from home.5 stars

  14. Amy says

    I would make my first using the recipe above and leaving it simple. I love sweet cream, and I love ice!5 stars

  15. Cynthia M Kepp says

    I remember a coconut cream snowcone I used to get when I was a teenager. I’d like to make this first for my girls birthday party.

  16. Della hawkins says

    O I like to make the cream snow cones in all kinds of flavors I like to try new flavors chocolate with cream is my new favorite and cannot forget the adult snow cones they are groovy and food with cream also we love snow cones

  17. Whinston Hearld says

    I would make the sweet cream shaved ice that’s the first on my to do list I love cream and if it’s grandma’s recipe I know it’s the truth

  18. Christopher Davis says

    Hi, I’m Christopher and me and my family loves getting Hawaii shaved ice my personal favorite is the tiger’s blood with sweet cream on top my oldest daughter blue raspberry I try to get her to try the cream but refuse to she don’t know what she is missing lol my youngest daughter loves pink lemonade and also refuse the sweet cream but all in all we really enjoy eating Hawaii shaved ice I think we eat one every other day lol

  19. Roxanne says

    Root beer would be the first choice in my house with a scoop of vanilla on the bottom and a snow cap in the top! We first learned of the cream on top on a trip to Island Snow in Hawaii many years ago and we are sure to enjoy it every-time we return, another family favorite!

  20. Bridgette says

    I’d love one of these machines to use for my church’s youth department fundraisers. I grew up with these sno cream treats. My first one would be a cream soda flavor! This would be a great resource for helping our kids practice their entrepreneurial skills!

  21. Carlie scott says

    My name is carlie, and my favorite flavor is strawbetry shortcake. And that is made with a cake batter syrup, a strawberry syrup and topped with the sweet cream. The first place I ever had it was at snow Vegas about a month ago, and I’ve been obseased ever since. I would love to be able to make it on my own.

  22. Karla Yuncker says

    My favorite flavor is silver fox with vanilla ice cream and a snow cap. It is sooo delicious!!! I cannot get enough of the snow cap, I ask for some in the middle as well as on top.

  23. Lauren Golemon says

    This snow ice sounds so good my grandchildren will love it’! I love vanilla but strawberry & blueberry sound good to. If I win I will make many different flavors for the kids & me😊

  24. Tammie J Shockley says

    I can’t wait to try the sweet cream recipe. That’s what I always order from the Hawian Ice stand.
    Thank you for the recipe!

  25. Rita says

    I am looking to create some delicious ice treats for my family this summer especially because we probably won’t be able to be outside much. I like that the Hawaiian Shaved Ice machine is affordable and appears to work great. Shaved ice is a part of my childhood. Where I grew up we call this tasty treat ‘sky juice,’ sold in a clear plastic bag; just put a straw in it and sip away!

  26. Debbie says

    I just heard about creamed shaved ice about a week ago. As soon as he mentioned it I knew I would have to try to find a recipe. Thank you so much for the recipe. I would try vanilla first and work from there. Sometimes I have a little trouble breathing and a nurse told me shaved or crushed would help. She was right. I carried a kids snow cone maker for a long time. My grandson love it because I used the flavors for them. I ate plain ice. I can still see and hear my granddaughter the g first time I showed up without it. She looked so sad and said oh no mam you must be feeling better. No more snow cones. I went and bought them one before I went home. Lol.5 stars

  27. Bridgette Mcdavid says

    Can’t wait to make this. If I won this cool machine. I would make first with it a brown mule. Using this cream recipe with a chocolate syrup .5 stars

  28. Stacey garcia says

    My first snow cone would definitely be a Sweet Mocha if your a coffee lover then you will fall in love ! Combine 2 Oz of sweetened cold brew coffee a couple table spoons chocolate syrup an a couple oz’s of half n half mix together pour over your shaved ice it’s my favorite5 stars
