Arroz Con Leche

Oct 20, 2020

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month we teamed up with one of our favorite couples, Ale and Bryan. 

Ale and Bryan are sharing 3 recipes passed down by their Peruvian 🇵🇪 and Puerto Rican 🇵🇷 families and showing how they like to incorporate their Apothékary blends into each of them. ⁠This incredible Arroz Con Leche is from Ale's Peruvian background and we may or may not have had seconds already!
