  1. Love the sounds of this one! Will definitely be treating hubby to this dessert – we both love Central American cuisine so much.

  2. This looks and sounds delicious! I just bought a juice extractor, too, so I will definitely put it to use with this recipe. Gotta get some ramekins, though, and thanks for the link to purchase some – I will check the prices and order for sure, if they are competitive.

  3. I have a good friend who is from Costa Rica, and she says this pudding is wonderful. I’m not much of a cook, but I think I will ask her to whip some up for me, lol.
