Glenn Lindgren: The most popular are probably the many tropical flavors: mango, mamey, guanabana.
Jorge Castillo: One we particularly like is the batido de trigo or wheat shake.
Glenn Lindgren: You might ask: "Wheat in a milk shake?" But think of the tasty puffed wheat cereal from your not-too-distant childhood and you'll get an idea of what the batido de trigo tastes like.
Jorge Castillo: It's a unique flavor you just won't find anywhere else!
Batidos are Cuban milkshakes, similar to American Style milkshakes, but with several unusual flavors.
1 cup whole milk
3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons sugar (to taste)
1/2 cup crushed ice
1 cup puffed wheat cereal
pinch of salt
Put everything in the blender except the ice and process until frothy. Add the crushed ice and process until the ice is ground fine and the batido is thick and rich.
