So, we were just chillaxin’ at my friend’s one Saturday, when she enthusiastically suggested, “Let’s make HALO HALO!”
Wikipedia: Halo-halo (from Tagalog word halò, “mix”) is a popular Filipino dessert that is a mixture of shaved ice and milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans and fruits, and served cold in a tall glass or bowl.
She pulled out little jars of beans, coconut, sweetened bananas, jack fruit, and gelatin squares from her fridge… and a little, blue, ice shaver (I had a red one back in Japan… they’re so much fun… anyway, I digress…)
Here are the ingredients:
Pictured above (what I can remember, anyway): macapuno (silky coconut), langka (jackfruit), grabanzo beans, saba (banana-like plantain), and nata de coco (coconut gelatin)
Top with shaved ice, evaporated milk, scoops of ube (taro) ice cream, a sprinkling of pinipig (crispy rice) and…
Enjoy your Deeeeeeelicious Halo Halo Cheer!!
Masarap (Tagalog: DELICIOUS)!!
