This Colombian Natilla features a perfect combination of cinnamon, condensed milk and shredded coconut - a Colombian Christmas classic!


Make It

Step 1

Heat 3 cups evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, sugar, cloves and cinnamon sticks in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture just boils. Reduce heat to low. Remove cinnamon sticks.

Step 2

Whisk remaining 1 cup evaporated milk and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add to heated milk mixture along with shredded coconut. Increase heat to medium-low. Stir constantly for 4 to 5 minutes or until mixture thickens and you can see the bottom of the saucepan when stirring.

Step 3

Pour natilla in an 8-inch-square baking dish. Allow to cool and firm for 1 hour. Before serving, sprinkle with ground cinnamon and slice into pieces.
