Keto Low Carb Matcha Shaved Ice

For those that aren’t familiar with shaved ice, it’s a dessert made by simply shaving a block of ice and drizzling it with some sweet syrup.  Not to be confused with snow cones which are made from crushed ice.

Almost every country has it’s own version of shaved ice.  But coming from a Taiwanese and Japanese family, we typically use flavors familiar to those cultures.

Growing up we always had a shave ice machine, whether it was a hand crank manual one or an electric one, so we could always look forward to endless amounts of shaved ice in the summer!

Typical household flavors include strawberry, condensed milk, and Matcha.  Since I’ve been on a Matcha kick lately, I decided to try making a low-carb/keto friendly syrup that I could pour all over shaved ice with no worries!

This syrup is so simple to make requiring only Matcha Powder, Swerve/Monkfruit, and hot water.  Make sure to cool down the syrup before pouring over the shaved ice to prevent melting.

Note that it’s important to mix the Matcha and syrup separately in different bowls then combine, otherwise it might leave a ‘grainy’ consistency.

Hope you enjoy it and helps you beat the summer heat!

For this recipe, the special ingredients you would need are Swerve/Monkfruit and Matcha Powder, which you can pick up on Amazon or a local supermarket.

You’ll also need a Shaved Ice Maker, which you can pick up on Amazon as well.
