My mom is a book hoarder. She has books bulging out of every closet and spilling into the garage. So when she decided it was time to get rid of some, guess who went to help her? Yours truly. She had a TON of cookbooks also. She doesn’t cook anymore, (I’m her youngest) but she just loves to look at the pictures of the food in the cookbooks. So I took a few for myself, and one of them was a Jello Cookbook.
This is where this genius idea came from! It’s SO easy and SO yummy, and there are so many different flavors to choose from. These are the perfect summer treat for kids! My kids just go and get the pan out of the freezer and dish some up when they are hot. These would also be really yummy over vanilla ice cream, the REAL Hawaiian way!
These that we made are strawberry, pineapple and blueberry. We were trying to make 4th of July shaved ice, but there are no jello’s that are white! So we tried yellow instead and it just turned into primary colors
It only takes 3 ingredients and it’s easy enough for the older kids to make on their own. If you trust your kids with boiling water, that is.
Here’s how you make it!
Jello Shaved Ice:
- 1 cup boiling water
- 2 cups sprite or similar soda pop
- 1 four serving size any flavor Jello
Into a square cake pan, whisk the Jello into the boiling water until dissolved. Stir in the soda pop. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. Use a cookie or ice cream scoop to shave the ice. Serve immediately.
