Shaved Ice and Snow Cone Recipes

Specialty Recipes


Try our shaved ice recipes to add some variety to your flavor menu? Try out some of the following recipes to make unique flavors of you own. You can easily add a few flavors to your selection by using concentrates that you already have in stock. 


The recipes listed below are for making one gallon of ready-to-use syrup. Simply add the ingredients to a gallon jug. Top off with preserved simple syrup, cap and shake well. If quarts are needed in any of the following specialty recipes, simply divide the measurements by 4.


Sours Flavors

                                    4 ounces of Citric Acid

                                    4 ounces of Flavor Concentrate (your choice)

Wine Coolers

            Give your favorite flavor a fruity twist by combining it with our tasty Wine

            Cooler Concentrate.  This combination works great with Cherry, Blueberry,

            Peach, Strawberry, Raspberry, etc.

                                    3 ounces of Wine Cooler Concentrate

                                    1 ounce of Desired Flavor Concentrate


            Great when combined with Blackberry, Strawberry, Peach, Banana,    Raspberry, etc.

Melon Berry

            A smooth berry flavor.

                                    2 ounces of Watermelon Concentrate

                                    2 ounces of Strawberry Concentrate

Cherry Blaster

            A twist to plain cherry.

                                    2 ounces of Cherry Concentrate

                                    2 ounces of Black Cherry Concentrate


            Kids will go crazy about almost any rainbow combination that you create.  Simply use a variety of colored syrups in order to produce a rainbow effect.  Start pouring syrups, one at a time, in straight lines starting from one side of your shaved ice or snow cone cup to the other.  Use colors that when mixed together, new colors will be formed.  For example, if you use Banana (Yellow) on one side of the container and use Bubble Gum (Blue) on the other side of the container, a green strip will form down the middle.  Thus yellow and blue make green.  It will look as if three flavors were used when in reality only two were.  We often charged an additional 25 to 50 cents for rainbows.


Chocolate Syrup Recipe

            To make one gallon of chocolate syrup combine the ingredients below.  This chocolate recipe is much tastier than our chocolate concentrate or syrup.  If a more chocolate flavor is needed you can adjust the ratio to suit your taste.

                                    60 ounces of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup

                                    60 ounces of Simple Syrup



          Use some creativity to come up with your own special flavors.  Simply combine any flavors that you have for unique combinations.  Most recipes are half and half.  Some of the most popular are listed below.   Develop your own recipes and give them unique names.

            Strawberry-Banana                   Cherry-Cola

            Strawberry-Kiwi                        Cherry-Vanilla

            Orange-Pineapple                     Banana-Bubble Gum

            Kiwi-Lime                                    Cherry-Blaster (Cherry and Black Cherry)



            Many customers will request that two or more flavors be served on their shaved ice.  We call these mixers.  A great money maker, mixers can easily get you an additional 25 to 50 cent for each cup of shaved ice or snow cone sold.  We charged an additional 25 cent for each flavor added.  If three flavors were used, we added 50 cent.  Some businesses do not charge extra for mixers at all.  Mixers will be very popular at your business.


Cream Flavors

          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.
