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.

The very same day that my friend Meseidy shared her recipe for Puerto Rican shaved ice, I ordered this 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 handy 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!

Servings: 8 -12 servings


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 14- ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • Whisk together the milk, cream, condensed milk, and vanilla. Shave ice into bowls or cups and drizzle each serving with ⅓ – ½ cup of the sweet cream mixture. Serve immediately. Enjoy!


The sweet cream mixture can be prepared up to a week in advance. We keep the sweet cream in the refrigerator and drizzle it over shaved ice for a treat whenever the mood strikes.

    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!

    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☆

    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.
