When you’re craving something cool and refreshing on the hottest days, shaved ice is a nice alternative to traditional ice cream and frozen yogurt. Luckily you can find many great options in and around Los Angeles.
Also known as Shave Ice, Hawaiian Shave Ice, Sno Cones, or even Snow Cones, Shaved Ice can sometimes be made with ice cream, and fruit – and even beans – can be added for fun.
