What is Halo-Halo

When it is hot especially during summer, we tend to look for something cold to eat and drink. Why don’t you try halo-halo. It’s a special dessert that is perfect during summer, enjoy it with your family and friends to relinquish the heat of the summer.

What is halo-halo by the way?, well “halo” is a tagalog term for “mix”, so halo-halo is a term used by Filipinos for a dessert such as shown in the picture. This is actually a mixture of different kinds of ingredients such as boiled kidney beans, garbanzos, sugar palm fruit (kaong), coconut sport (macapuno), and plantains caramelized in sugar, jackfruit (langkâ), gulaman, tapioca, nata de coco, sweet potato (kamote), cheese, and pounded crushed young rice (pinipig). These are just the basic solid ingredients for halo-halo, in some parts of the Philippines they include some fruits such as avocado, mango and many more.

How about liquid ingredients? Well milk is needed to have a delicious blend of taste to these solid ingredients, then don’t forget to put a crushed ice as this is the most important ingredient of Halo-halo, and lastly of course is sugar. So when they are mixed together they provide a very delicious taste.

You can call it special halo-halo when you see a scoop of ice cream on top of it. Wow it’s so tempting to see this dessert, I can’t wait to buy one already. Don’t forget to grab a spoon and enjoy your summer with Halo-halo. Cheers…
