TEMBLEQUE (PUERTO RICAN COCONUT PUDDING) + SWEET CILANTRO/MINT SAUCE

The challenge for March from Creative Cooking Crew is “The Perfect Bite”.

TEMBLEQUE CCC MARCH 2014 012


I had my perfect bite, but one of my friends raided my refrigerator during the middle of the night and ate it.  She gave it a thumbs up, but no pictures.

Just got back from a week in Puerto Rico and found another perfect bite.  I did a post on tembleque a while back.  It is one of my favorite childhood deserts.

When I saw it on the menu, I had to order it especially when it was served with a cilantro sauce.  The Chef promised to e-mail me the recipe and forgot.  I then thought of adding the mint.

All you have to do is make a simple syrup and once the syrup has cooled  add 1/4 cup of cilantro leaves and about 20 of mint then blend…must say it worked out well and I got to eat it this time.

  8. I love this tembleque idea… how can you go wrong with a coconut custard? Brilliant idea of adding a cilantro kick to the mix. A perfect bite indeed.

  9. This really looks amazing and I am so curious about this sweet cilantro mint sauce
