Long summer days, and scorching sun makes 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, tamarindo, and the not so common, and very popular amongst the smaller children Oreo cookie flavor. My personal favorite is coconut, crema and bizcocho.
5 crushed Oreo cookies
2 cans of water (use the evaporated milk can)
1/2 cup of sugarDirections:
Let your child crush the cookies in a sealed sandwich bag.
Pour evaporated milk in blender, and add the crushed Oreo cookies, cans of water, and sugar.
Pour into 3 oz. disposable cups then I added chunks of Oreos inside.
Oh yum, we are totally making these! Is the only difference that you use the fruit instead of the crushed Oreos?
We use the fruit for the mango, pineapple, etc. But for this one, we use Oreo cookies. 🙂
These sound so good!! Thanks for sharing them at the Holiday Treat Swap!!
