MenúPerú visited Curich to show you how to prepare a cremolada like the experts.


Located in Miraflores for over 30 years, a Croatian family with culinary traditions has offered an ideal way to beat the scorching heat without adding any extra pounds. We’re talking about the cremoladería Curich, experts in preparing one of the most glorious, frozen Limeño treats.

MenúPerú has developed a special on summer desserts and, therefore, invited Troika Curich, manager and precursor of the franchise, to show us a great diet version of the cremolada.

Curich reveals the simplicity of her infallible formula: abundant fruits (many of them native to Peru such as, camu camu, arazá and aguaje for example), water, sweetener, and savory juices, all of which are then liquefied with a simple and easy technique that leaves the ideal consistency. This recipe allows you to experiment with flavors, such as pisco sour and algarrobina.
