  • sweet corn, canned or boiled fresh
  • shaved ice
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • evaporated milk, or milk of choice
  • corn flake cereal
  • homemade corn ice cream


  • In a serving glass, add a couple tablespoons of sweet corn. Top with shaved ice. Drizzle about 2 teaspoon sweetened condensed milk over ice. Pour about 2 Tablespoon evaporated milk over sweetened ice.
  • If desired add another layer of corn, shaved ice, and milk.
  • Otherwise, sprinkle corn flakes cereal over ice. Finish with a scoop of corn ice cream. If desired, drizzle additional sweetened condensed milk over ice cream. Enjoy immediately!


  • Use drained canned corn. Or, cook fresh cobs of corn and chill before use.
  • Evaporated milk is sweeter and slightly thicker than regular milk.
    • Use your choice of milk in place. Good alternatives are whole milk, half & half, a splash of heavy cream. Non-dairy alternatives such as soy milk and oat milk are also great options.
  • ¬†Good substitutes for corn ice cream include: vanilla ice cream, corn & cheese ice cream (mais queso ice cream), coconut ice cream, or coconut almond chip ice cream.
