Hey guys... thanks for all the answers!

I'll try to explain how is it: it is not exactly sweet but have some kind of sweetener. It is thicker than a normal cream and does not taste like it. Probable has goats milk on it. It is kind of difficult to mix with the juice of the fruit salad, and it is definitely not yogurt.
It is hand made, believe me. And it is lebanese!
Is there any lebanese in this forum?????

Is it this, maybe?

Cream Filling (kashta)
Yields about 2 cups

Kashta is one of two basic dessert fillings used in many Middle Eastern desserts, the other being a nut filling. It is normally made from the cream that floats on top of whole cream milk when simmered. I have never managed to make the real Kashta. In Lebanon one would buy already made Kashta from pastry shops or buy the canned clotted cream variety (which I am not too crazy about). This recipe gives excellent and tasty results every time and is the best substitute for the real thing.

2 cups Heavy Cream
2 Tbsp Corn Starch
2 tsp Orange Blossom Water
2 Tbsp Sugar

In a saucepan, bring the cream to a gentle simmer. Meanwhile make a slurry with the corn starch and some of the cream. Add the slurry to the cream in the pan and bring to a boil. Add the orange blossom water and the sugar and keep stirring until you get a very thick spreadable mixture resembling cream cheese in texture.

Probably! Thank you very much..... I'm gonna try to make it. In the shop sometimes they put canned cream when they do not have the one I like... and it is obviously not the same! I will let you know as soon as I make it!
