shave ice w. adzuki beans

May 14, 2012 § 14 Comments

i’ve mentioned this treat before, it is one of my favorites and so far i have only been able to get it in hawaii and japan. but now that my mother has a shave ice maker, we’ve been eating these everyday and plan to do so all summer long. the special sauce is what makes it special, and different from the original snow cone. pleeease make this one.

shave ice maker
ice cubes
flavored syrup {i used strawberry, rainbow colors would be fun too}
packaged sweetened adzuki beans {you can get this at a japanese grocery store}
condensed milk

to do:
add a bit of water to the adzuki beans as well as to the condensed milk, in order to loosen up the consistency. this will ensure that they drizzle more easily onto the shave ice. prepare the shave ice in the ice maker. drizzle the flavored syrup onto the shave ice as well as the two toppings. eat immediately and enjoy!

kauai photo book ~ vol. I

May 13, 2011 § 3 Comments

my trip to kauai was beyond beautiful. even though it stormed with quickly-passing, down-pours of rain, along with huge gusty winds, we still managed to enjoy the hawaiian sunshine halfway into the trip. i did get a chance to finally sample the shave ice with azuki beans and snow cap {sweet condensed milk}, which truly exceeded my already high expectations. it was addicting to say the least. i was also able to snap a photo of the endangered hawaiian monk seal that was napping on shore. the seals rest up in the day in order to gain energy to escape the sharks at night.
