Long summer days and scorching sun make me want to eat frozen sweet treats from Puerto Rico! Remember when I wrote about the piraguas?

Well, with us living in the U.S.A. it’s kind’a hard trying to get my hands on one of them right now.   Limbers are often sold from a neighbor’s home. I remember when I was growing up it was a real treat to get a quarter and run down to Doña Juana’s house to buy a limber! Oh, so many flavors to choose from!

Limbers are homemade frozen treats made out of tropical fruits such as pineapple, coconut, mango, and tamarindo, and they are not so common, and very popular amongst the smaller children Oreo cookie flavor. My personal favorite is coconut, crema, and bizcocho.

Although I can’t fly off to Puerto Rico to get a limber I can sure make some with my little man. I asked him what flavor he’d like to make, and of course, he said “Oreo!”Making limber with your children is fun and easy!

Recipe ingredients
2 cans of evaporated milk
5 crushed Oreo cookies
2 cans of water (use the evaporated milk can)
1/2 cup of sugar
Let your child crush the cookies in a sealed sandwich bag.
Pour evaporated milk into a blender, and add the crushed Oreo cookies, cans of water, and sugar.
Mix well.
Pour into 3 oz. disposable cups then I added chunks of Oreos inside.
Freeze overnight.

We made various batches of limber to serve at little man’s upcoming birthday! I made the coconut, mango, and pineapple limber, and our son made the Oreo ones.
After they were frozen we had a taste test with Daddy, and little one. They both seem to agree on preferring the pineapple, and Oreo limbers. Being the island girl that I am was totally drooling over the coconut and mango ones.
What is your favorite sweet frozen treat to beat the summer heat?
