A popular Filipino treat with Japanese origins, halo-halo consists of a blend of fruits, sweet preserves, evaporated milk, and shaved ice. It is frequently topped with a scoop of ice cream. The name literally means “Mix-Mix” referring to the hodgepodge of ingredients.
- kaong (sweet palm fruit)
- macapuno (silky coconut)
- langka (jackfruit)
- munggo(mung beans)
- saba (fat banana variety)
- ube (purple yam)
- mais (corn)
- nata de coco (coconut gelatin)
- pinipig (crisped rice)
- sago (pearls similar to boba)
- stick-o stick (optional)
- Combine kaong, macapuno, langka and red munggo in a parfait glass. Other possible ingredients are slices of saba, chunks of ube, mais, nata de coco and pinipig.
- Top with shaved ice, evaporated milk and a scoop of ice cream.
Notes: Make sure to mix thoroughly before digging in. Yes, mixing all those goodies at the bottom without spilling the ice and ice cream off the glass is a skill that needs to be honed by regular indulgence!
