A tasty dessert from Chef Manny’s recipe book!

Banana Dulce De Cream Leche


  • 2 bananas (blended)
  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 12 oz. sugar (approximately 1/12 cup)
  • 12 vanilla beans, split and seeds scraped
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda



Combine the milk, sugar, vanilla bean and seeds in a large, 4-quart saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved.

Once the sugar has dissolved, add the baking soda and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and cook uncovered at a bare simmer. Stir occasionally, but do not re-incorporate the foam that appears on the top of the mixture.

Continue to cook for 1 hour. Remove the vanilla bean after 1 hour. Then add the blended banana mixer and continue to cook until the mixture is a dark caramel color and has reduced to about 1 cup, approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to a month.
