How Can I Make Shaved Ice Without a Special Machine? Good Questions

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: Is there a way to make shaved ice without a shaved ice maker? I can crush it in my blender, but it’s a bit different. Any ideas?

Editor: Richard, this is a great question and something we were just wondering about too. But we can’t think of much besides the aforementioned blender and the food processor. One idea, too, if you already have an ice cream machine, is to start from scratch and just put water in your ice cream machine and let it run. It would probably turn into a sorbet-like consistency, somewhat similar to shaved ice.

Readers, any other ideas?
