Reppin' my 49ers at the grand opening
You're probably wondering just what is shaved snow? If you can imagine shaved ice & ice cream having a baby, it's kind of like that. It's a Taiwanese dessert called xue hua bing, roughly translated as "smooth snow ice." Flavors are mixed into a base of milk & water & then frozen into cylindrical blocks. The blocks are then placed into an ice shaver, which shaves it into thin ribbons that literally melt in your mouth! You can then pair it with drizzles & other toppings of your choice suck as jelly, fruit, etc.

Here's a video I found on YouTube to show you how the snow is shaved & presented into what you see in my photos :)

One of my favorites is the peanut butter snow with sliced bananas, yum!
