Latin America Project

The origin of the flan dates back to Rome, when they first started to keep chickens. It then passed to Europe after being conquered by the Romans. From Europe, Christopher Columbus brought the flan to Mexico and South America. I was surprised when I saw coffee flan and some other types including fruits like berries. 

Flan Mexicano (Mexican Flan)

"Delicious flan, you will love it!"
·         1 cup white sugar 
·         3 eggs 
·         1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 
·         1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk 
·         1 tablespoon Mexican vanilla extract 
1.       Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.       In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt sugar until liquefied and golden in color. You are carmelizing the sugar. 

It will take 20-30 minutes to get it to a smooth melted state. 

Don't be tempted to taste it or you will burn your finger or tongue. Helpful tip: keep some Young Living Lavender essential oil or Lavaderm nearby in case you burn your finger.  Http://

Carefully pour hot syrup into a 9 inch round glass baking dish, turning the dish to evenly coat the bottom and sides. Set aside.

3.       In a large bowl, beat eggs. Beat in condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla until smooth. Pour egg mixture into baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil.

4.       Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes. Let cool completely.
Here is what it looked like when we took it out. 

5.       To serve, take a knife and go around the glass dish to release the flam. Then, carefully invert on serving plate with edges, when completely cool. Best to cool in fridge for four plus hours and serve chilled.

This dish was creamy and delicious. It was a bit too cooked at the edge of the custard, which is better to eat first than last. Other than that, I loved the flan.

Found this recipe in a group I belong to and it looks awesome! Happy St. Patty's Day!!!


Free of grain, gluten, eggs, dairy & refined sugar.

1 Hass avocado
1/4 c. honey
6 T. coconut oil, melted
1 1/2 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
1-2 drops Young Living Peppermint essential oil (order at )*
dash of salt

1/4 c. coconut oil
2 T. honey
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1/4 t. vanilla extract (I like to make my own)
dash of salt

Line a 9×9 inch baking dish with foil. Place all ingredients in high powered blender (such as a Blendtec or Vitamix) or a food processor. Blend until smooth. (You can puree it if you want, but I like mine to have little flecks of coconut still.) Smooth mixture into prepared dish and stick in the freezer.

In small saucepan, melt coconut oil and honey over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Pour over chilled bottom layer and return to the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until the chocolate layer is hardened. Remove from foil and cut into bars. Store covered in the freezer.
