Beating the Heat with Mango Shaved Ice

Is the heat getting to you? Summer heat strikes with a vengeance. Nothing cools you off like the sweet, delightful sensation of mango shaved ice.

For this workshop, the lovely Wen You showed us how to puree mangoes with other ingredients to make a sweet mango sauce. She also demonstrated how to make light and dark syrups that are tasty with shaved ice.

Then came the ice. Catherine demonstrated her bravery around blades and her hard-core machine operating skills to shave giant blocks of ice into small ice parcels. The finished product combined shaved ice, mango sauce, optional other syrups, chopped mangoes, and ice cream to complete a delightful sensory bouquet. We successfully beat the heat and scrumptious treats were enjoyed by all.

The evening was completed with a CCGKC mixer, which expanded the topping options to include prepared sweet potato, barley, beans, gummy bears, sprinkles, candy, and whatever else your heart desired. Attendees also enjoyed Boba milk tea drinks.
