South Korean Patbingsu is a shaved ice dessert that is a spectacular treat on a hot humid day. Koreans do not typically eat dessert after a meal however this is lovely to enjoy after any meal. Fruit is also quite expensive in South Korea so patbingsu is definitely considered a treat. You can use any toppings you like but be sure to try and get the tteok the little rice cake treats that are like marshmallows as well as the sweet bean paste for an authentic Korean dish. If you don’t have a snow cone machine to make the shaved ice, a high speed blender can handle the task. I have a vitamix and love it. Also the drizzle of the sweetened condensed milk on the ice is a must, who needs chocolate? You will love South Korean patbingsu!
