Raspados Loly’s

$$$$
Tasty Planet

Korea has bingsoo, New Orleans has snowballs, and Nicaragua has raspados. While these can be found throughout Latin America, Nicaraguans have a unique way of approaching them, and Raspados Loly’s has long been the destination for Nicaraguans in Miami craving a sweet, refreshing taste of their homeland. The ice here is crushed instead of shaved with the larger pieces melting more slowly than the finely shaved ice found in other types of snow cones. Additionally, the crushed ice is layered with spoonfuls of homemade fruit jams, including nance, a Central American fruit that grows on a specific variety of palm tree. You can also get your raspado topped with about a quarter inch of dulce de leche, which mingles with the melting ice and fruit jams, making a sort of milky beverage. As if that weren’t enough, you can also opt to bury chunks of Nicaraguan-style pound cake between the layers of ice.
