What is a Limber?
A Limber is Puerto Rican-style ice cream. It has the texture of a popsicle and is frozen in a plastic cup. For the most part, traditional Limbers do not have a popsicle stick and are enjoyed by squeezing the cup so the limber pops out. Many people will flip the limber upside down so they can eat it from the bottom up.
Making a Puerto Rican limber is easy all you need is the correct ratio of juice, water, and sugar. After blending the ingredients together it’s poured into small plastic cups and frozen. So break out the blender and turn on the Caribian music for a taste of the islands.
To get the fluffiest texture, mix the ice more than once while it’s freezing. You can also garnish with grated coconut and a maraschino cherry. There are numerous variations, so it can also be prepared with coconut, lemon, mango, Piña Coladas, pineapple, or raspberries.
Don’t forget every Saturday thru the summer of 2021 we will be producing a different Limber recipe. So check back every Saturday for a new tasty limber.
