Halo Halo is the ultimate summer treat. It’s a layered dessert made with shaved ice, sweetened beans, coconut jelly, drizzled with condensed milk, evaporated milk, and ube ice cream.
When I first tried Halo Halo, I handed the cup back to my mom and told her I didn’t want it. The second time I tried it, I took three bites and handed it back to my parents. I tried countless times to enjoy Halo Halo, but it wasn’t until one summer, my boyfriend handed me Halo Halo and told me to eat it.
From then on I loved Halo Halo and I probably spent more than $100 on Halo Halo that summer! Thanks boyfriend for handing me that cup of Halo Halo and telling me to eat it!
I’ve got the full recipe below, plus a video if you’d like more guidance. Enjoy!
