Hot Summer + Honey Scrapings = Fun guaranteed

With the heat we are experiencing this summer, nothing falls on us more than a refreshing shave and what better if it is made with natural ingredients such as honey, lemon and tamarind.

I tell you that National Honey Board and Lauda Flores, founder of Sno-Con Amor and expert in raspados, have found the perfect way to recreate these delicacies with a perfect, but balanced, sweetness and flavors ranging from Strawberry and Honey Delight to Jamaica flower with honey. And the best part? Each scrape is sweetened with the gift of Mother Nature – honey!

Below I share 2 delicious recipes that you can enjoy at home.
