Halo-Halo

It’s summer time again for sure when you can’t stay but a minute outside and you are already sweating and sticky without doing anything more strenous than lifting a glass of iced tea. I’m loving it though. It gives me an excuse to come up with cooling treats like Halo-halo.

Halo-Halo is the Filipino version of the summertime ice treat. Halo-halo, which means mix-mix literally, has its various renditions in different countries: Ice kakang in Malaysia, Es Teler in Indonesia, Ruam Mit in Thailand, Three Bean Drink/Rainbow Ice in Vietnam, and of course don’t forget it’s simpler sister, the Italian ice.

There are a great many versions of halo-halo so I won’t put a recipe here, but here are more halo-halos on the web if you’re interested in making your own.

  • Razon’s Halo-halo – not a recipe but rather a review of one of the best places to get halo-halo. The girls and I tried this place at the Mall of Asia and loved it! It was simple but one of the best halo-halos we’ve ever tasted.
  • Halo-halo recipe from seasite
  • Market Manila Halo-Halo
  • Baby Rambutan’s Halo-HaloAs you may have noticed from the sampling of recipes for halo-halo, there isn’t a strict recipe for it, put what flavors you like and enjoy!

    About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

    I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.
