Halo Halo from The Philippines
Desert time in the Philippines! Halo Halo is the name given to the ever popular shaved ice dish in the Philippines.
The ingredients of this sweet ice cream dish change depending on region, and … well, who’s making it. But the core items are shaved ice, milk, kidney beans, banana, sugar palm (those hard jelly cubes again), jelly of all types. Additional add ons could range from ice cream (the purple one above is from Ube Ice Cream), corn, rice cereal and condensed milk.
Known by many names in other Asian countries … the big question is, where did it originally come from?
The price can be as low as 30 pesos in a local eatery, up to 100 + pesos in a restaurant. Great stuff on a hot day!
