Cream cheese flan with guava, or Guava and Cheese Flan, is the dessert I prepare the most during Christmas time. Everyone I serve it to, young or old, loves it! It goes with Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dinner, and yet it’s lite. What I appreciate the most is that I can prepare this cream cheese flan with guava recipe two or three days in advance, and it keeps very well in the refrigerator. I invite you to try it. I bet you’ll find that the guava blends very nicely with the traditional taste of cream cheese flan.

  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 can (14 oz) condensed milk
