How can I make shaved ice at home?
To make shaved ice recipes at home, use an ice shaving machine to create light and fluffy ice, then simply add your favorite syrups and toppings. Because shave ice is very fine and delicate, you’ll need a specialized appliance like an ice shaver to get the right texture. A blender will chop, crush or puree ice, which won’t create the signature thinly shaved sheets for authentic shaved ice.
The KitchenAid® Shave Ice Attachment allows you to easily create light and fluffy shave ice at home using the power of your stand mixer*. Quickly and easily make over 1 pint (500mL) of fine shaved ice in 60 seconds.** Freeze and shave a variety of recipes including fresh water, juice, and milk or dairy, then customize your ice creation with a variety of syrups, sauces and toppings. Elevate your shaved ice with homemade fruit syrups infused with extracts and herbs, indulgent liqueurs, caramel sauce or whatever else you dream up.
**Excludes prep time, based on plain ice using fine blade.
