Agua de coco is mildly sweet, helping eliminate the need for artificial sweeteners. It’s also healthy and invokes visions of a tropical paradise, setting a fun and relaxing mood. Cocont water is packed with potassium and vitamin C, in addition to having many other health benefits, that include, helping with your circulation, strengthening your immune system, clearing your skin, and detoxifying your body.
During summer, it’s great for kids or at barbeques, because it’s packed with electrolytes, that help rehydrate your body 15 times better than sports drinks, like Gatorade or Vitamin Water, without the calories and artificial sweeteners.
So, here are my coconut water shaved ice recipes. Enjoy!!!
Choco Coffee Mountain Shaved Ice Recipe
For this recipe, you’re going to want to brew about two to three cups of coffee with coconut water. Coconut water is mildly sweet and will be undetectable in your coffee machine after a couple of uses.
Add and mix in chocolate syrup until it dissolves in the hot coffee. When it comes to room temperature, freeze this coffee in the containers for your ice shaver.
After you shave the ice, top this sweet, chocolaty coffee treat with chocolate syrup, thin sliced candied almonds, crumbled white chocolate Oreo Hershey’s, thin sliced banana and a dollop of whip cream on top. While we’re at it, try adding some all natural, unsalted peanut butter in there someplace.
Nobody ever thunk it, but there it is, shaved ice taken to the next level. The next two aren’t quite as complicated, but nevertheless, classics that you and your kids will love!
Sweet Milk and Fruit Medley Shaved Ice Recipe
This recipe takes me back to my childhood. I remember the fruit medley cups from my lunchbox in pre-school and then in every school cafeteria from elementary school and on. LOL, fruit medley was one of the only things besides pizza and chocolate milk that I’d eat or drink from those cafeterias. Ahhhh, the memories.
Obviously, we’ll need the shaved ice machine and our pre-frozen blocks of coconut water.
Once the ice is all shaved up, drizzle some sweet condensed milk over the top, and top it with canned fruit medley. And, how about some extra condensed milk for good measure?
This one’s an old school classic, enjoy!!!
Red Bean and Ice – Shaved Ice Recipe
In addition to consuming lots of shaved ice while I lived in Hawaii, my childhood consisted of many trips to “J-town,” as my family would call it, or Little Tokyo, in Los Angeles. From the time I was a little kid, I can remember the hole in the wall restaurant, with a little street food booth in the front, that serves red bean ice. I’m on the cusp of my 31st birthday and still go to the same place, today.
I love this recipe, and it’s a cultural treat, so I though I would share it.
You’re gonna want the warm red beans, that are nice and sweet, with all the juices reduced down. You can buy these beans already prepared at any Japanese market. Serve the warm red beans in a small bowl or cup and cover them with a layer of shaved ice about one inch thick and drizzle the top with sweet condensed milk.
Ahh, so simple, but so good. This one is actually pretty healthy because, not only do you have the coco water, you have all the nutrients from the red beans as well.
