Tres Leches ” Three Milk Custard”


tres leches, three milk custard


Tres Leches or Three Milks… ahhh so so good! I have eaten this a lot over the years because my husband introduced me to it, and I have grown to love it!  Tres Leches, is a rich, creamy, gelatin like milk flan or custard. It’s made up of only 4 ingredients, but three meaning three different types of milk products.  On my husband’s side of the family, we usually enjoy it holiday time, or at a family party, but I felt the need to make it this weekend. ;o) If you make this, I know you will love it, and it will be a big hit at your next gathering!


  • 2 packs plain gelatin
  • 1 cup water, boiled
  • 1- 7.6 ounce can Nestle Table Cream or Media Crema (I find this in stores that carry latin foods)
  • 1 – 14 ounce can Carnation sweetened condensed milk
  • 1- 8 ounce package Philadelphia cream cheese
  • Cinnamon for sprinkling


In a small pot boil your water , add gelatin,  and set aside to cool.  In another bowl add table cream, condensed milk, and cream cheese. Use hand mixer to combine well .  Add your gelatin to cheese mixture and blend again.  Pour into sprayed custard molds, or a cake pan. Refrigerate until set like jello. Unmold and serve. I like mine with a dash of cinnamon and fresh strawberries! Enjoy!
