Tres Leche Cake

A three-milk cake is a fluffy light cake made with three different milk types: condensed milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream. Commonly topped with whipped cream, strawberries, or other fruits such as:

● Kiwi’s

● Cherries

● Oranges

● Mandarins

Served cold for obvious reasons, this milk-soaked cake flawlessly compliments sweet cream tamales.

Mexican Flan

Mexican flan’s consistency pairs amazingly with our tamales. A flan is a baked custard consisting of caramel, caramel pudding, condensed milk, and milk. The rich, creamy flan flavor closely resembles creme brulee but gives off its uniquely distinctive taste. Whether you wish to go the traditional route and use caramel flan, mix things up, and choose choco flan.


This Mexican sweet roll is infamous for its round shape and flakey seashell appearance, earning its notorious name. Whether you choose vanilla or chocolate-flavored conchas, this sweet bread roll will suit the sweet palate our tamales give.

Arroz Con Leche

Just as rice goes nicely with tamales, so does sweet rice and sweet tamales. Arroz con leche is a Mexican twist on the widely popular rice pudding. With cinnamon, sugar, vanilla, evaporated milk, and raisins, the rice is transformed from a savory side dish to a yummy dessert. Just like your tamales, you can serve warm or cold.

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Mexican hot chocolate is more flavorful and depth than American hot cocoa. Original hot chocolate has chocolate or cocoa powder. In contrast, Mexican hot chocolate has milk, cinnamon, chili, and various other spices, making this drink the perfect balance between rich, sweet, and bitter. Wash our tamales down with this tasty drink.

Dulce de Leche

In English, Dulce de Leche can translate almost exactly to caramelized milk. This extra-sweet milk candy can be drizzled over sweets or eaten as is if you have a super sweet tooth. Try dipping your sweet cream tamales in this syrupy confection for an unworldly sugary sweet taste.

Horchata and our Tamales

As we’ve been reading, any dessert in Mexican culture with the word milk or contains milk will be a favorite. Horchata is a traditional milk drink with creamy rice, cinnamon, milk, and vanilla. Similar to the ingredients in Arroz con leche, this dessert is a cold beverage that is soupier than the dessert and has less rice.


Not to be confused with the American funnel cake, this fried dough piece is piped from a bag straight to the fryer, creating a long thin pastry that’s both crunchy on the outside and light and airy on the inside. Dip in chocolate evaporated milk or even dulce de leche for an extra flavor booster. Sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, this will surely be a hit with our sweet tamales.
