Chinese style icecream

Forget about cream and eggs, Chinese style icecream is all about ice. A pile of shaved ice is covered with different type of fruits, jelly, red beans, mung beans and it is sweetened with condensed milk. I guess condensed milk has been added lately as it is not a Chinese ingredient. Sometimes icecreams come with a soy milk jelly on the top.

I like Chinese style icecream, it is refreshing and works perfectly for hot summer days in Shanghai. I think it would be a nice addition to all cold desserts in the western part of the World as well. Western types of icecreams have found their way to China, Häagen-Dazs has stores all over the city and not to mention all other brands. Lets see if Chinese style icecream ever reaches the west.
