Nata Bionico

Written by Ericka Sanchez - Nibbles & Feasts 

A bionico is a snack salad made with papaya, cantaloupe, apple, strawberries and banana. The fruit is mixed in a combination of creams, which include sour cream, sweetened condensed milk and at times, cottage cheese. It is called a bionico, meaning “bionic” because it is considered an energy snack with so much fruit included. Because I’ve gotten to know Parmalat Nata Crema Para Desayuno very well. This delicious nata was a perfect candidate to be part of the bionico mix. The result is a creamier version than the original. The cream turned out silky, rich and flavorful, and coats the fruit really well.
