Add some variety to your flavor menu by offering mouth-watering creamy flavors. Adding evaporated milk (cream) to a flavor gives the shaved ice a creamy taste and texture close to homemade ice cream. When cream flavors are used, we suggest adding 25 to 50 cents to your base shaved ice cup price.
To make a quart of any cream flavor, simply add 4 ounces of evaporated milk to an empty long neck quart bottle. Next top off the bottle with any of the flavor syrup.
You can also make a gallon of any cream flavor at a time by adding 16 ounces of evaporated milk to an empty gallon jug. Next, top off the jug with any flavored syrup.
Concentrates that work great as cream flavors are Banana, Peach, Vanilla (most popular cream flavor), Strawberry, Pina Colada, Coconut, Chocolate, Strawberry Cheesecake, Almond and Egg Custard. Acidic flavors usually will not work well since the evaporated milk may curdle.
Once the evaporated milk is added, the flavor must be refrigerated and will usually last for 4 to 5 days.
