Tres leches cake…….minus the leches

Tres leches cake gives me life.

Every time I order lunch from the local Spanish restaurant across the street from work, I always include a slice for dessert.

And then I feel guilty after eating a dessert that is so heavy on dairy. And not just milk, but milk in 3 different ways like the name indicates.

So, like all the other cakes & ice creams that I love dearly, I want to find a way to enjoy a healthier version of this decadent dessert.

Since the traditional version uses evaporated and condensed milk, which after looking at the ingredients on the can one day and now abhor, I want to attempt a dairy free version. So I searched and found a few recipes online.  Most of them call for combinations of soy and coconut milks, which sound alright but I don’t suspect will have that same impact on the taste buds.

Then I found instructions to make condensed coconut milk, and my interest piqued even further. My quest is to make a dairy free tres leches cake, using variations of coconut milk. If I can pull this off, it will be epic. Wish me luck.
