We don’t know what to say here. We all feel pretty helpless. The people at UNICEF seem to know how to help the kids in Ukraine, Gaza & Armenia (amongst, sadly, many other countries).

Leche Merengada, delightfully translated to Meringue Milk, is a popular Spanish drink enjoyed over the summer months. Lemon infused milk and egg whites are whisked until frothy, then almost frozen like an icy granita. Mmmilk! 


Leche Merengada is believed to have originated in Andalusia, a region in southern Spain, during the 16th or 17th century. The classic recipe typically includes milk, sugar, cinnamon, lemon zest, and egg whites, all whipped up like a meringue. Some like it cold like milk, others want it frozen like an ice cream dessert, but all agree it should be zesty and refreshing.


A great recipe with clear instructions, with a final optional step to freeze the drink before breaking up the ice crystals.
