A big hello to all of you Capturing Joy readers! I’m Debbie, one of the three sisters who blog over at Made From Pinterest and I’m so excited to be here today to share this super fun recipe for Jello Shave Ice to help cool your summer down!

Jello Shave Ice.  This is an easy recipe that you can make with your kids and they are going love eating it because they made it themselves!Is shave ice popular where you live? Here in Utah, you can barely turn a corner without a shave ice hut on it.

The other day I counted over 40 people in line at the shave ice hut near my home. It’s a crazy phenomena here.


Now here’s a lesson for you on shave ice. If you know what you are talking about, you will call it “shave ice” and not “shaved ice”. If you call it “shave ice”, it means that you know thats it’s official Hawaiian name. If you call it “shaved ice”, you are showing your haole (non-islander) ignorance!

Jello Shave Ice

My daughter is half Tongan and her husband is full Samoan so around our house, we definitely call it “shave ice”!!


Your kids are going to want to eat this Jello Shave Ice all summer long!

With all the great flavor of Jello, this Jello Shave Ice is SO easy to make!

Now that you know what to call it, let’s get around to making it. Here we go!

Jello Shave Ice
Course: Dessert
Author: Made From Pinterest
  • 1 6 oz package of Jello or two 3oz pkgs any flavor you desire
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 4 cups Sprite
  • 2-3 drops of Americolor Soft Gel Paste in red blue and purple. Can also use regular food dye color.
  • Condensed milk if desired
  1. With a whisk, mix the dry jello powder into 2 cups boiling water. Mix well so that all the jello powder is dissolved.
  2. Add four cups of Sprite. Mixture will get foamy but that is normal.
  3. Add desired number of drops of food color. This is just to get a brighter color of ice.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Pour into 9x13 pan and freeze overnight.
  6. When ready to serve, scoop out of the pan with an ice cream scoop.
  7. If desired, you can top with some condensed milk.
Recipe Notes

One 2 litre bottle of Sprite yields 10 cups which makes 2 1/2 recipes.

And for the finale, you can also top your shave ice with some condensed milk:
