Baobing (Chinese: 刨冰; pinyin: bàobīng), also known by its Taiwanese Hokkien name Tsuabing (Chinese: 礤冰; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: chhoah-peng), is a shaved ice dessert found in China and Taiwan. It is especially popular during the summer. Baobing was eaten in China as early as the seventh century AD. The dessert consists of a large mound of ice shavings with various toppings on top. A wide variety toppings exist, but the most common ones include sugar water, condensed milk, adzuki beans, mung beans, and tapioca balls. Fruit are also used according to the season. Mango baobing is typically only available in the summer, while strawberry baobing is available in the winter. Traditionally, these shavings were created by hand using a large mallet to crush ice or a blade to shave ice. Now, most stores use machines, which result in finer, thinner ice shavings. Baobing is similar to other desserts such as Japanese kakigōri, Filipino halo halo, Korean patbingsu, Malaysian ice kacang, and Italian ice, grattachecca or granita.
