Pot Bing Su

This is the very popular Korean summer dessert called pot bing bu. Pot refers to the sweet black beans, bing su refers to the pile of shaved ice underneath the black beans, corn flakes, sweet mochi balls, canned fruit and ice cream. It's sort of a smorgasbord of tastes and textures.
I started eating it very carefully, but Kwang informed me I needed to mix all of the bits together.  Here he is showing me how it's done.
Here's what pot bing su looks like when all mixed together. The cornflakes almost freeze when mixed in and make a very crunchy texture. The shaved ice makes it not as sweet as a sundae. Overall, I think it's a summer hit and I'm sure we'll be eating more in the future.
