And don’t forget, #LifesDelicious, so enjoy it!
- ice shaver machine and ice (Note 1 serving = 2 cup / 500 ml in the volume of shaved ice)
- 1/2 cup sweet red beans (1/4 cup per serving)
- 2 Tbsp sweetened condensed milk (1 Tbsp per serving)
- 2 Tbsp misugaru (미수가루 or roasted grains powder, 1 Tbsp per serving)
- 2-3 Tbsp mini mochi rice cake (1.5 Tbsp or 1 heaping Tbsp per serving)
- 6 strawberries (sliced)
- 1/2 cup blueberries (1/4 cup per serving)
If using a special round container for the ice, fill it with water and put it in the freezer to make ice. Some machines, like mine above, will let you make shaved ice from regular ice cubes also. This is nice to have since you may not always have the special ice ready or have enough of it.
Open cans, package and clean berries, and prepare each of the toppings for assembly.
Shave the ice into a bowl large enough to hold everything.
Order of toppings is not terribly important but to coat ice evenly, you may want to sprinkle the misugaru on ice using a small sieve.
Add berries and mini mochi cake. Spoon sweet red beans on top or on the side and then drizzle sweetened condensed milk
Bingsu has many variations and it's basically however you want to make it. You can have kids make their own bingsu with their own favorite toppings. You can also top it with ice cream and nuts. Enjoy!!
