WHAT ARE RASPADOS
A little sweet, a little spicy and a little savory, raspados, or Mexican shave ice, as they are also known, are popular in Mexico and the American southwest. Raspados are traditionally made from ice that’s shaved, or scraped by hand with a tool called a “raspador” and topped with fruit or nut-based syrups and/or milk.
Frozen desserts made with shave ice are popular across the globe. Many regions bring their own spin to these icy treats with regional flavors and toppings. In addition to the raspado, there is the kakigori from Japan, the bingsoo from South Korea, the granita from Italy and many more. The Shave Ice Attachment from KitchenAid makes it easy to recreate ice dessert from around the world right at home, including raspados, Hawaiian Shave Ice and Italian Ice.
