Making Piraguas - Shaved Ice Attachment

Making Piraguas - Shaved Ice Attachment 

A piragua is a Puerto Rican frozen dessert that consists of shaved ice and fruit-based syrup formed into a pyramid shape. Piraguas are sold by street vendors known as piragüeros in Puerto Rico, but can also be found in the United States in places like New York City and Central Florida. 

Traditionally, the dessert is made by shaving a block or puck of ice with a handheld shaving tool and topping the ice with fruit flavored syrup. You can make your own piraguas at home with a shaved ice machine and your favorite toppings and flavors.
