Morir Soñando (Milk and Orange) Ice Cream

Morir Soñando (Milk and Orange) Ice Cream Recipe: You don't need a machine to make this delicious ice cream. Creamy just like the ones from the store.

A few weeks back in a conversation with some fellow bloggers I mentioned that eventually I might run out of Dominican dishes to write about. Oops. Hit the panic button!

Not really. I have four words for you: morir soñando (milk and orange) ice cream.

In 12 years doing this I have gone through about a little over a half of my list of Dominican recipes. Mind you I did not always do this with regularity, there were periods in which I did took a break, but I never stopped. I figure that at the rate I am going I have another decade.  And I not only write about Dominican food, so there’s that too.

Then what?

Well, food evolves, some dishes have appeared now that didn’t exist 12 years ago. And I have come up with some dishes that heavily borrow from our cuisine and that some that people have simply adopted as part of our Dominican heritage.

Which is how this dish came about.

I love finding new ways to re-design our dishes, new ways to serve them.

They might not be the original ones, but they still retain the essence of our flavors, of our cultural heritage. So no matter how long we keep doing this, there will always be something to write about.

  1. Thank you for sharing this recipe! It sounds incredible, and I can’t wait to try it once the weather’s warmer in New York. I wanted to share part of my master’s thesis, a self-guided Dominican food tour in NYC. I titled my thesis Morir Sonando after this fabulous drink.
