Halo-halo recipe

It's summer time once again! That means higher electricity bill and halo-halo season. Is there such thing? Okay I made that up! Halo-halo is a Filipino mixed-fruit dessert that is usually eaten during the summer season. (March-May) You will see a lot of halo-halo stands in every street corner. It's like a counterpart of lemonade stands in the US. 

Here's a recipe that I revised from Foodnetwork:


2 tbsp red beans
2 tbsp sweetened banana
2 tbsp tapioca pearls
2 tbsp macapuno (sweetened coconut)
2 tbsp caramelized sweet potato
2 tbsp caramelized jackfruit
2 tbsp kaong (palm nuts)
2 tbsp nata de coco (coconut gel)
2 tbsp fresh grated cantaloupe
1 tbsp of pinipig or rice crisp
1 tsbp purple yam jam

Crushed or shaved ice
1/2 cup evaporated milk
ube ice cream (you can also use creme caramel or flan)

In a tall glass, layer the first 11 ingredients. Cover with enough ice to fill the glass. Pour evaporated milk onto the ice. Top with a scoop of ice cream and serve with a smile. ;-)

Enjoy the summer!
