Here's another easy, healthy and refreshing desert your kids could enjoy. You can also let them join the process of making this kid friendly icy, milky treat.
The traditional mais con yelo is actually made up of crushed ice or shaved ice bathed with condensed and evaporated milk. Since I have a little boy that isn't fond of ice, I froze the milk overnight so that it would turn icy. It will alter the ice, and I won't have to mix the milk separately.
Yield: 10 medium sized glass or salad cups
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 1 bottle nata de coco (coconut gel)
- 1 can whole corn kernels
- corn flakes
- 2 tall glasses of water
- rice krispies (optional)
- chocolate syrup/shavings (optional)
- Mix condensed milk and evaporated milk in a deep plastic container. Add a little amount of water (about 2 glasses) as the milk alone will be too sweet.
- Freeze for 3-4 hours or you could keep it in the freezer overnight.
- As the mixture turns icy, you can start scraping it with spoon or with an ice cream scoop. Take 3-4 scoops of icy milk and place in a salad cup or glass.
- In every serving place 1 tablespoon of nata de coco (coconut gel), 1 tablespoon of corn kernels and a handful of corn flakes.
- Top each serving with chocolate syrup/shavings and sprinkle with rice krispies. Add even a scoop of ice cream (optional).
