Pour the previous preparations into the glass of the Vitamix®, close the lid tightly, select speed 1, turn on the blender and gradually increase the speed to 10 and then to high level. Blend for 6 minutes or until steam comes out through the hole in the lid.
Serve the cream in a deep dish decorated with pumpkin flower and epazote leaves. Enjoy


Serve the cream in a bowl and decorate with sour cream and a pumpkin flower.


If you are going to refrigerate the pumpkin flower, wrap it in a wet napkin inside a plastic bag so it does not wilt.

Es muy fácil y rápida de preparar. El sabor queda muy bien. Si al servir le agregas granos de elote y un cuadrito de queso manchego, le da una consistencia riquísima.
