Mais Con Yelo is a refreshing layered drink that is made with sweet corn, sweetened condensed milk, and lots of ice! It’s very addicting!
What is Mais Con Yelo?
Mais Con Yelo is a layered dessert made with sweet corn shredded ice, condensed milk, sweet milk, and Filipino ice cream!
The literal translation of Mais Con Yelo is Corn with Ice- sounds weird but surprisingly delicious especially paired with corn ice cream or even mango ice cream!
Also, there are many versions of this popular drink/dessert, and here’s my version of it. Keep in mind you create this drink/dessert any way you like- as long as you have the key ingredients!
Tips & Variations:
- Use drained canned sweet corn without salt. Also, fresh-cooked corn works too, just chill in the refrigerator before using.
- If you eat dairy, evaporated milk works really well instead of plant-based milk.
- Ice: I prefer using shaved ice, but crushed ice works too! Here’s my favorite ice machine that I’ve been using for years! Also, if you live in the Philippines, you can easily purchase shaved ice in the market.
- Storage: This is best served fresh and immediately!
