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!!

Off the box of butterscotch pudding.  Thank you JELL-O.


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

This smoothie is really thick and rich and packs a sweet punch that just might knock ya off your feet.

In a good way of course.

  1. Oh, that looks good! I saw a recipe on Tastespotting for easy homemade Dulce de Leche. They put an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk in a crockpot with a couple of inches of water and cooked it over night. It transformed into thick delicious looking caramel! As if sweetened condensed milk needed any help to be better…
