Boozy Mango Shaved Ice

I was so excited to finally try the viral trend of grating frozen fruit into shaved ice! Of course I had to give it a boozy twist. And I have to say that in the realm of refreshing summer treats, the Boozy Mango Shaved Ice reigns supreme. 

I chose frozen mango as the base of my shaved ice, added a splash of rum, some fresh squeezed lime juice and a drizzle of condensed milk to top off this Hawaiian-inspired concoction.

What I love most about this recipe is its versatility! You can use all kinds of frozen fruit – try pineapple, peaches, strawberries or anything that sounds good. While rum is my go-to for that Caribbean flair, feel free to try it with your favorite spirit like vodka, tequila, gin, or whatever you love. Get creative and craft your own boozy shaved ice flavor combinations with different fruits and liquors. Cheers to frosty fun!

How Do You Shave Frozen Fruit?

Shaving frozen fruit is the key to achieving that perfect, snow-like texture for icy treats. The method I used was the grating technique, where frozen fruit is rapidly grated into delicate flakes using a microplane or a box grater. It’s a quick and effective way to create a fine, fluffy base. Frozen fruit can stick to the grater, so clean the grater or microplane as you go to keep it working smoothly.

If you’re looking for a more convenient approach, a food processor can swiftly transform frozen fruit into the ideal consistency for shaved ice, making it a great choice for larger batches and saving you precious time in the process.

Ingredients for Boozy Mango Shaved Ice

  • Mango: Frozen mango provides a naturally sweet and creamy base to this treat. Get creative with other summertime fruits like pineapple, peaches, strawberries, or watermelon!
  • Rum: Rum adds a hint of warmth and complexity. I used Plantation 3 Stars rum, but you can try vodka, tequila, or another preferred spirit!
  • Lime juice:  Freshly squeezed lime juice introduces a zesty tang that complements the sweetness of the mango. You can use bottled lime juice too.
  • Condensed milk: Sweetened condensed milk over the shaved ice adds a rich, luscious dimension. I like Eagle Brand. You can also substitute coconut condensed milk.
  • Lime zest: A generous sprinkle of lime zest adds a burst of citrusy freshness.
  • Garnish: Jazz up your presentation with a lime slice and an edible flower for a pop of color.

How to Make Boozy Mango Shaved Ice

Let’s whip up the Boozy Mango Shaved Ice! Most of your prep time is going to be freezing your fresh fruit. First slice up the mango into wedges and freeze overnight until solid. Use a microplane or box grater to grate the fruit into a cup. I used glasses from Bomshee. Work quickly, and carefully, so the fruit doesn’t melt.

Next pour the rum and lime juice over the shaved mango. Drizzle with condensed milk and sprinkle with lime zest. Add a lime slice and edible flower for a tropical flair before enjoying immediately!
