What is dessert like in Panama?


Panamanian desserts are creamy. Pastel de tres leches, or three milk cake, is one of the best. It’s a sweet, rich cake made from regular, evaporated and condensed milk. Another popular option is flan, a light egg custard topped with a caramelized sauce. Batidos are shakes that are blended with fresh tropical fruit, milk and sugar. Panama’s bastidos are delicious and come in a variety of flavors, including strawberry, papaya, and pineapple. Finally, there are raspados, shaved ice snow cones topped with tropical flavorings and a dollop of condensed milk. They are found throughout all of Panama.
