So, what is leche?

Leche is a Spanish word for milk, a versatile and essential ingredient in many culinary traditions. It is produced by female mammals and used in various forms, including whole, skim, condensed, evaporated, and powdered. Leche adds richness, creaminess, and nutritional value to recipes, from sweet desserts like flan, tres leches cake, and ice cream to savory dishes like sauces, soups, and stews. It contains essential nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D, and protein, making it an excellent source of energy and bone health. Leche is also a popular beverage on its own, served cold or hot, with coffee or tea, or flavored with chocolate, vanilla, or cinnamon.
