If there’s one thing that defines Colombia during Christmas, it’s the smell of natilla in every household. It’s a dessert that everyone loves for its rich texture and how wonderfully it combines with the traditional buñuelos, another dish that can always be found throughout Colombia during the holidays. Natilla is usually served as an appetizer during the novenas and as dessert during Christmas eve and day. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is the traditional version, but with shredded coconut, panela, arequipe or bathed in blackberry sauce, you’re able to give it a special touch. MORE + LESS -
