There’s no denying that enjoying a good plate (or two) of cream-based dishes is one of the best ways to reward oneself after a hard day of work. Cream just has a way of making other flavors and ingredients taste extra comforting—not unlike a warm hug or a weighted blanket on a cold, rainy afternoon—which is why it’s extra disappointing when your carbonara turns out watery or when the layers of your mango float won’t hold.
So how do you avoid this? The secret is to use an all-purpose cream brand that has more body! Yes, you read that right. Not all all-purpose creams are made equal and using one that is able to hold on to other ingredients better (a.k.a. sarap na yumayakap) is key to making sure you get a rewarding consistency.
Strictly speaking, you can use heavy cream to really nail that texture, but let’s face it. It’s too
expensive for regular use and not as widely available. The next best thing? Alaska Créma All-
Purpose Cream. It’s so smooth and thick, it gives you extra assurance that your next creamy
adventure will turn out just the way you want it to. But don’t just take our word for it—go
ahead and give it a try.
And in case you’re feeling a bit adventurous, you can find a lot of really delicious ways to use
Alaska Créma here. There’s even a recipe for spicy, garlicky carbonara with prawns and one for
a really balanced-tasting mango float with chocolate ganache!
Alaska Créma All-Purpose Cream is available in two sizes: 250ml (P56.00) and 135ml (P32.00). You can find both in all leading groceries and supermarkets nationwide as well as in Alaska’s official Shopee and Lazada stores.
