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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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
