Buko Pandan

Buko Pandan, is a Filipino Dessert which is made from, evaporated milk, young coconut strings, tapioca pearls, agar-agar which is also known as JELLO and, condensed milk.  If you ever visit the Philippines, buy the Buko Pandan from Chow King, it is so good.  They top the Buko Pandan with Coconut ice cream and it’s so delicious.  

I remember when I last visited the Philippines, the week I was to leave I visited the mall everyday to eat Buko Pandan.  *sigh* Which brings me to announce, I will be visiting Philippines next summer 2015!  YEY!! I will be going with my church and we will be doing health seminars and VBS.  I cannot wait to go back!!
