Mexican Dessert: How to Make Almendrado or Mexican Flag Dessert

Great light Mexican dessert made meringue from egg whites and custard topped with toasted almonds called Almendrado or Mexican flag dessert. Very light and delicious. Enjoy!

Half and half is basically half whole milk and half light cream. I don’t know what is available in the UK but half and half here in the US is typically between 10.5 and 12 % butterfat. So you could do something like 4 parts whole milk and 1 part heavy whipping cream. Or 3 parts whole milk and 1 part light whipping cream.

Looks delicious just like everything you share with us. Do you think I could use meringue powder instead of the raw eggs? It’s a metal thing with me I can’t bring myself to eating uncooked eggs.
