ISO Bionico Cream Recipe

I am looking for a recipe for the cream in bionicos (mexican fruit salad).

  1. How do you make the cream for the bionicos.

    1. Most of the bionicos I've had were made with yogurt, not cream. I generally find Mexican yogurt to be softer and creamier in both taste and texture and less tangy than the typcial American yogurt brands. If you're sure it isn't some form of yogurt, then it very well could be Mexican crema, which is a lot like creme fraiche and pretty readily available at Mexican and latin markets.

      As an alternative try mix Mexican crema and American yogurt. LaLa (Mexican brand) yogurt is available in the U.S. at many Mexican markets.

      1. This is from someone's blog. I just found it today, so I haven't tried it:

        1/2 cup of crema mexicana
        1 can/tin of Clavel Milk (I'm assuming Carnation evaporated)
        1 can/tin of sweetened condensed milk

        1 Fuji Apple
        1/4 cantaloupe (green or/and orange)
        6 strawberries
        1/2 cup of blue berries
        1/2 cup of fresh pineapple
        1 banana
        2 kiwis (if they are in season)
        4 T of shredded coconut (in the baking isle)
        1 mini box of raisins

        shredded almonds

        Enjoy, and let me know how it turns out if you use this recipe!
