Summer is here, and it’s the perfect season to make paletas with your kids!
It’s Christmas, and I am full-Christmas spirit! I planned a Latin flair Christmas party for the kids (post coming soon)! For the drinks besides fruit punch, and strawberry lemonade I served coquito for kids.
1 packet of pure creamed coconut 7 oz. (this has no sugar)
Chill, shake and serve.
Will you be making your own coquito for kids?

A few weeks ago we participated in a global candy swap, and we were thrilled to explore Germany’s and France’s sweet treats!
Here’s the recipe for you.
- 2 packs of 8 oz. softened cream cheese (for a lighter version I used Neufchâtel cheese)
- 1/2 cup of guava paste
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 ready-made pie crust
- 4 tablespoons of guava jam
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix cream cheese, guava paste, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add the eggs, and mix together. Pour mixture into the ready-made pie crust. Bake for 40 minutes or until the center of guava cheesecake is firm. Chill for 3 hours or overnight spread guava jam over it, and then serve.
