Dulce de Leche Smoothie

filed under: Miscellaneous on May 6, 2011

I have a secret to tell you.

I have been seeing Dulce de Leche everywhere.  I am fascinated by it.  The way the words look and sound and the mystery of complex flavors they tease.

I love just saying Dulce de Leche.  I feel sophisticated and gourmet.

So you can image how excited I was to try it.

And how lame I felt when it just tasted like caramel.

Oh, its not Dulce de Leche’s fault.  Its mine.  I have a very unsophisticated palette!

But I can still run around saying it and pretending I am cool.

Anywho… I came across this coulndnotbeeasier recipe for a Dulce de Leche smoothie and had to try it!!

And just because I am a glutton, I added a bit more caramel to the top.

    I have a Mexican/Spanish heritage and grew up in southern California, so I was introduced to this from a young age. It is so delicious! And yes, can just taste like caramel. Don’t feel bad, I think so too. But for some reason, that doesn’t make it less tasty to say that! Give me sugar any time and I won’t complain.

    It’s a sad truth but I think Dulce de Leche is pretty much caramel, or a thick caramel at least. In Australia we make caramel pie filling by boiling tins of condensed milk (or you can by it pre-made). Dulce de Leche just means ‘sweet milk’ but it sounds so much more exciting than caramel, so where’s the harm in calling it that. I first loved it in Argentina where I also discovered Churros, and thus love them dipped in caramel more than in chocolate.

    This recipe looks yummy, But I think it’s unfairly called dulce de leche smoothie. Butterscotch & caramel does not match the flavor of caramel at all. Disappointing.

    Sorry meant to say it does not match the flavor of dulce de leche at all
