Once in a while, I get to partner up with a new brand of food item that I've been following and loving for quite awhile.

Several years ago I discovered Batey sugars and found them to be of excellent quality and competitive in market pricing. Many of the dessert recupera that you've already seen on have featured Batey sugar.

Today, I'm featuring Batey's Premium Pure Cane sugar on a classic recipe, my mom's own Lemon-Lime iced crema (or cream). It's the perfect dessert for a hot summer day (or night).

*Keep in mind that this dessert requires freezing a few times.

Let's get cooking...


  • 1 (12 FL ounces) can of evaporated milk

  • 1 cup of white pure cane sugar

  • 1/2 cup of fresh lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice

Day 1

  • Pour evaporated milk in a large glass mixing bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place on freezer overnight.

Day 2

  • The next day, take the frozen evaporated milk out of the freezer and begin to beat it with an electric mixer (careful the milk will be hard). Slowly add lime and lemon juice to loosen up the milk. Mix well.

  • Slowly add sugar to mix until creamy.

  • Once mixture is creamy, transfer mixture to a decorative serving bowl or into individual serving bowls, sealing them with plastic wrap and then put them in the freezer until serving time.

Serve it up!

Once ready to serve, uncover bowl or bowls and garnish with thin slices of lemons and limes.

About Batey...

Founded in the year 2000 by Roland and Paulina Schneider who along with their then 10 year old son, Alan, left their home country of Colombia looking for a safer home.


While living in central florida the Schneiders realized there were no options for high quality raw sugars at afordable prices. 

Having known that  Colombia has always been a great producer of sugar cane the Schneiders decided to start a company focusing on less processed, raw sugars. With the launch of TWCorp and the brands Batey and Mimosa Sugars, a great journey began for the whole family.

Through sacrifice and hard work the family began their pursuit of the American Dream. At first, Roland and Paulina would visit small grocery stores offering their sugar and initially many stores would say no, but others saw the great opportunity and brought on the product. As time passed and customers kept asking for the sugar with the “large golden crystals” more stores decided to bring on the items. 

After many years of perseverance and hard work, the family and the TWCorp team continue to grow and stablish the brands BATEY and MIMOSA as household names by providing great service and products to over 7,500 stores that have chosen TWCorp.
