Shaved ice brings back many childhood memories. I remember when I used to have gym class in school and a shaved ice vendor would set up right outside of school. He made the best shaved ice I’ve ever had. He would also sell what we call “chupi-chupi” in Venezuela, which is basically shaved ice stuffed into a plastic bag. It's not very common to see shaved ice carts in the States, so I decided to make my own homemade version. My kids love it! And I'm happy to share some of my culture through food. Try them out!
