COCONUT WATER SHAVED ICE WITH STRAWBERRY BASIL SYRUP
The inspiration for this light and refreshing dessert was my sister's planned hairstyle for Coachella. Pink roots! What's delicious in the desert? Ice cold dessert. How to I mimic pink roots on a blondie? Strawberry syrup of course!
Raspado, if you're not familiar, is just shaved ice with syrup on it. So simple, and yet something that had never occurred to me to make. Now that I've been bitten by the bug, I can't stop. Shaved iced tea with lemon infused syrup? It's a frozen arnold palmer. Shaved pineapple juice with jalapeno mango syrup? A spicy yet refreshing treat. I am going to be all over this recipe once I get to enjoy a sunny day.
