From Veracruz: Frozen Mango Dessert

Our Veracruz-style dessert, ‘Dulce de Mango‘ (frozen mango concoction), was accompanied by a very unusual rum and peanut butter drink called ‘Torito de Cacahuates‘!

The frozen mango dessert was a mix of

  • one kg. of frozen mango
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 2 vanilla pods scraped
scraped vanilla beans

The ingredients were blended in a blender, poured into dessert cups and placed in the freezer for 30 minutes, then served immediately.

The scraped vanilla beans are a particularly appropriate addition, as the ‘vainilla‘ bean comes from an orchid native to the jungles around Veracruz.
