I remember sitting on a beach in Mexico with a big frothy fresa colada. I had asked the waiter to replace the pineapple with strawberry because I wasn’t in the mood for piña at the time. It was one of the best flavor combos my mouth had ever experienced. I ordered that drink for the rest of my vacation and have been enjoying it ever since. Recently, I was at the bakery and looking at all the delicious empanadas…. I had apple, pineapple, strawberry, and custard cream to choose from, but I still wasn’t satisfied. I was craving something more. I wanted that feeling of sitting on the beach in Mexico with my strawberry coconut combo. Then it was clear, I would need to run home and make this combo in an empanada myself. The results were sublime. Here is my recipe for you and your family to enjoy.
