11 Delicious Latin American Desserts You Can Totally DIY

This dessert might be simple, but it’s packed with flavor and allows a Latin American staple — the plantain — to shine. It’s also a great use for very ripe plantains, which are sugar, water, cloves, cinnamon and lemon juice and simmered. The result is a sweet and spicy dessert that is great on its own, but is often served with a soft white cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large very ripe plantains, peeled and cut into 4 chunks each one
  • ½ cup light brown sugar or grated panela
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ tablespoon butter
