    Mateito,

    I see that this is your first post. Welcome to the forum!

    I think I saw "leche con crema" on a can of half and half once. But that was awhile ago, so I'm not completely sure.

    Hope this helps.

    I think if anything it would be "mitad y mitad" (mitad leche, mitad crema), but I don't think the translation is that literal. I guess we'll have to wait...

    The thing is that you usually end up ordering a specific kind of coffee with milk and or cream in it. I don't drink coffee but I think un cortado americano is coffee with milk at least and the milk can get pretty darn creamy if you ask me. :)

    En Argentina usamos mitad y mitad:
    Un café con leche, mitad y mitad.
    Una pizza de anchoas y de jamón, mitad y mitad.

    Pero la pregunta original se refiere al producto lácteo solo... que supuestamente es mitad leche y mitad crema. Es algo que se le echa al café al gusto de uno.


    Cream, heavy cream, half-n-half, milk, skim milk, lemon, honey, sugar, sweet-n-low, splenda, equal. All the choices to sweeten your tea or coffee. Yet half-n-half accounts for 64% of all coffee condiment sales.

    How do you translate Half and Half milk into Spanish?

    Media crema es el término que conozco.

    Pero en inglés no es half and half milk, sino simplemente half and half. O por lo menos así la he oído siempre. Mitad crema y mitad leche.

    Mitad crema, mitad leche.

    Gracias por su ayuda. I looked for a thread regarding half and half and when I couldn't find it (in desperation) I started this new.

    Thanks again for your help ;)

    In all of the cookbooks I have seen, half-and-half is translated as mitad crema-mitad leche or crema de mitad y mitad.

    Aqui esta la defición de lo que es esta crema:

    culinaryarts.about.com/od/glossary/g/Half-And-Half.htm

    En el norte de México la marce nestle la vende como Media crema ( le pregunte a un pastelero bilingüe) sirve para postres y para hornear tortas y algunos se la ponen al café. En otros paises le llamamos crema de leche.

    No la confundas con la leche mitad y mitad en español que es simplemente leche con 50% menos grasa y 50% menos lactosa

    Suerte!

    Sí pero whipping cream y half and half son dos cosas diferentes.
