Anyplace to get a cholado?

I've just learned about the delicious-looking dessert/drink called the "cholado." Does anyone know where to find one in Los Angeles? Failing that, is there something similar I should get to fill this new-born craving?

(For those not in the know, Wikipedia defines a cholado:

Cholado or Raspao is a cold beverage common in Colombia. It is made from crushed ice, fruit and/or fruit syrup, sweetened condensed milk, and is sometimes topped with whipped cream. )

      Oops. I guess I searched poorly. That'll do, thanks.

        the search function on chowhound is pretty terrible so understandable to miss it. hopefully others will chime in with more suggestions...

          I end up using google search but constrain it to chowhound. For example this earch would be: [cholado los angeles site:], remove the brackets when typing into google.
