A shop on the Windward Side, Tropical Grindz, is offering healthier versions of regular shave ice flavors, using agave nectar. Agave is an alternative to sugar substitutes like Splenda, without a funny aftertaste, and has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar. Paul Wai opened up shop this past July in a tiny strip mall in Kaneohe. He features agave shave ice in strawberry, passion fruit, banana and honeydew flavors. “The agave flavor tastes a lot like regular shave ice syrup, but it has a deeper color and tastes lighter, refreshing,” says Wai.

Tropical Grindz also offers the usual shave ice flavors like Blue Hawaii, li-hing mui and lychee, with mochi, azuki beans, ice cream and condensed milk toppings. You can also find bubble drinks, Korean snacks, weekly lunch specials, and, but of course, used surf boards for sale.

Tropical Grindz Ono Shave Ice, 45-560 Kamehameha Highway, 497-0909. Open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
