- PINEAPPLE-MANGO SYRUP
- 2 cups pineapple cubes (about 1/2 fresh pineapple)
- 1 cup sliced mango
- 1/4 cup sugar
- PLUM SYRUP
- 1 pound red plums, pitted and sliced

How to Make It
Make pineapple-mango syrup: Put pineapple cubes, mango slices, sugar, and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Lower heat to a simmer and cook until pineapple and mango are softened, about 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Pour into a blender and purée into a thick syrup. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer and chill until ready to use.
Make plum syrup: Put plums, sugar, and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves, then lower heat to a simmer, cover, and cook 20 minutes. Let sit until slightly cooled, about 10 minutes. Pour into a blender with lemon juice and purée; taste and add more lemon juice if you like. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer, adding more water if needed for a thick syrup. Chill until ready to use.
Make shave ice: Process ice cubes in a food processor, 2 cups at a time, until cubes stop clattering and look like snow, with no lumps. Or, use a shave-ice machine.
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to each serving dish. Top with shave ice, then drizzle with either syrup plus a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk. Sprinkle with coconut flakes.
Make ahead: Syrups, chilled, up to 5 days. Shave ice, frozen, up to 1 day (whirl again before serving to break up icy clumps).
