Summer Time means Halo-halo time in Philippines

Yes, at last, after so many months of waiting to be back in my own country, baby and I were able to relax by enjoying our vacation in the Philippines.

 Truly it is hot and summer is in. I do like summer in the Philippines although one thing I don't like is the unpredictable weather change in our country. But for now, what I can say is that I enjoy here in Makati City. The sun is high, the sky is blue, ahhh some breeze over here and there. Baby took a bath outside and it was fun seeing him enjoy his ball toy while splashing water in the wash basin. Anyway, this blog is still going to talk about food.

 It is about Halo-halo, one of the most favorite summer snack treat of the Filipinos. Halo-halo is a sweet, cold treat for everyone who has a sweet tooth. Halo-halo or in layman's term is called mixed mix in English is composed of different ingredients like sweet potato, pearl balls or tapioca, gulaman or gelatin, leche flan, ube, langka or jackfruit, with sweetened white beans, garbanzos, corn kernels, some evaporated milk and sugar for blending it and ice cream if its really a special order.

 Well, my brother bought this halo-halo in the neighbor and we just added ice cream that we bought yesterday. It was really a fun way treat for this Holy Week and were on stay-cation (just at home and stay). You can add more concoction for halo-halo if your adventurous and quite playful when eating like nata de coco (one of my favorite ingredients), kaong and macapuno strips.

                                                Yummy Ice cream on Halo-halo

The invention is endless and the fun stays even more when shared with families and friends. How about you? Have you tasted Halo-halo? You can just crush ice and mix it with the ingredients I have mentioned above.Try it now to cool you down on a hot summer day!

                                                      Tempting isn't it ?! heheh!
