Delicious Milk Recipes | Sweet Potato Ramekins

My favorite holiday recipes are created with the delicious flavor of milk.   Milk is such an important part of our diet because it has a lot of health benefits.  A  glass of milk will help you sleep well.  It will also gives you a really pretty smile.   Drinking milk will also give you healthy nails, hair and make your skin as silky smooth.

I’ve been able to find many creative recipes to incorporate milk into my families diet.   Our family enjoys it in Arroz Con Leche and Chocolate Abuelita. I also enjoy modifying traditional recipes to make them more healthy by substituting ingredients or cooking methods.    Ramekins are small dishes perfect for making portion sized milk recipes.  Some of my favorite milk recipes to make in ramekins are Quiche, pumpkin treats, flan, creme brulee & Panna cotta.

My favorite ramekin milk dish is made with sweet potato.  Whenever I make a Sweet Potato ramekin I feel happy because I know it’s going to be tasty and a  healthy dessert for my family.    It’s the perfect portion to make me feel the warm feeling of the holiday’s all year-long.
