Posted: Wed, 21 September 2016, 16:02

There is just one thought that crosses your mind when you think about Mexican food, yes you are right, “YUMMY” and you instantly start drooling a little bit.  We all know how popular and trendy Mexican food has become in the last decade. We love getting a nice taco or burrito with homemade guacamole, whether for lunch or a relaxed dinner with some friends or colleagues. But what about Mexican desserts?  Very few people are aware of some of the amazing desserts Mexico has to offer. Let me tell you that Mexican cuisine boasts a massive range of different sweet treats and scrumptious options, which I assure you will not disappoint.

I am sharing a very popular dessert amongst Mexicans, and the best part is, my versions it’s completely vegan friendly! So this is the perfect way to indulge guilt free! The best part about this dessert is how easy it is to prepare - don’t need to bake it! We hope you enjoy and don’t forget to share your pictures with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Buen Provecho!

Ingredients

6-9 Limes

320g condensed Coconut milk

360ml evaporated Coconut milk

170g ground almonds

2 packets tea biscuits (500g)

Dash of cinnamon powder

Method

  1. Squeeze the juice of all the limes into a bowl and pour in both cans of coconut milk. Whisk or use a hand blender until smooth.
  2. Once you have a nice texture, gradually add and incorporate the ground almonds to the mix, feel free to use the whisk or hand blender to ease the process. This will give us a denser, more rich mix.
  3. Place a layer of tea biscuits into a Pyrex medium size container and pour some of the mix on top of it until all the biscuits are slightly covered. Repeat the process until you have between 3-5 layers of biscuits.
  4. Add a dash of cinnamon powder on top and pop it in the fridge for two hours to set.
  5. Serve the slice in a squared shape and garnish with cinnamon or lime zest on top.

 

  • Alternatively, you can pop it in the freezer over night for a different texture.
