On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, so many damn desserts from around Latin America. (Okay I am single so this is totally not true, but whatever). Have some cake, and eat it too. I wish everyone an amazing Noche Buena. These are desserts you should definitely considering having during the holiday break!
These are super sweet and easy to make. With this recipe, you're going to need plantains that are very ripe -- almost black in color. Ripe plantains will add sweetness, along with the brown sugar syrup.
Dulce de Guayaba
This dessert has a main part to it: guava. Guava is a tropical fruit and it's peeled, chopped and boiled for a couple of hours to be made into a sweet treat. This dessert is usually served with a piece of white cheese and/or crackers. The savory and sweet parts of this dessert is coupled perfectly together. It's popular from Paraguay, but you can find this dessert in several Latin American countries.
Tres leches is translated to three milks. It has condensed milk, evaoprated milk, and heavy cream. The cake is soaked, which makes the cake very moist and soft.
Think of flan of being a much better version of a cheesecake!
VEGAN Tres Leches
Who said you can't have tres leches vegan? It's totally doable, and still tasty as hell. Instead of using your usual creams and milks, for this version you are using almond milk, coconut milk, and vanilla soy creamer!
Arroz Con Dulce
Yes, we can turn rice into a dessert! This has cinnamon, ginger, raisins, sugar, and nutmeg. Everything you can imagine that belongs into a Christmas dessert, is in an arroz con dulce. So now you can have rice for dinner and dessert. ;)
Mexican Chocolate Flan
Flan is such a beautiful dessert, so it only makes sense to up the game and make it chocolate.
