WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BINGSU AND BAOBING?
Both baobing and bingsu are served in shallow bowls with toppings – nearly always involving fruit. The difference is in a few details. Bingsu is a ball of light, snowy ice, while baobing is a tower of thinly shaved sheets, or ice flakes. In addition to red beans, baobing may be topped with lychees, taro, rice balls and peanuts.
Like bingsu, baobing is often doused in something sweet and creamy, like sweetened condensed milk or coconut milk and is meant to be shared with a friend or loved one.
You can customize the ice for different shave ice desserts with the KitchenAid® Shave Ice Attachment. For light, fluffy shave ice, try the included fine blade. Swap over to the included coarse blade for a heavier, crunchier texture.
