Shaved Ice, With Style

Rainbow ice cream and shaved ice.

Over the weekend I tried the shaved ice at Mozart's Cafe & Bakery on Buford Highway. The shaved ice has the best consistency - like snow - and is doused with sweetened condensed milk (actually the sweet flavor may actually be IN the ice and shaved after it's already sweetened). Then it's covered with fresh and canned fruits and a scoop of ice cream - in this case green tea. Sweet red beans are usually added also, but I'm not a big fan so thankfully they informed me of this prior to putting those on top! A delicious summer treat for sure.
