There’s ice cream, obviously, and there’s gelato, and popsicles, and slushies – and then all of a sudden, shaved ice popped onto the scene. What could potentially be the healthier alternative to froyo [depending on your choice or quantity of toppings] combines light and fluffy shaved ice with whatever your heart desires to top it with, and at Snowdays, they’ve got pretty much everything. Think 16 Handles meets halo-halo [two of the greatest summer desserts in existence, in my opinion]. Choose from a base [flavors include Sweet Milk and Roasted Black Sesame] and a wide array of drizzles and very Asian-influenced toppings, such as mochi, grass jelly, red bean, and even Pocky.
Build your own, or if you’re feeling overwhelmed, go for one of the combos, like my Almond Joy [bottom] with vegan coconut shaved cream, M&Ms, almonds, salted caramel drizzle and then an extra side of strawberries. Don’t be overwhelmed by the large size – tell yourself it’s basically just ice like the fat kid at heart that you are.
