Halo-halo ( for Tagalog language "Hodge-Podge") is a popular Filipino dessert with mixtures of shaved ice and evaporated milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans, jello and fruits, and served in a tall glass or bowl.
Ingredients include boiled
kidney beans, garbanzos, sugar palm fruit ( kaong), coconut sport ( macapuno), and plantains caramelized in sugar, jackfruit ( langkâ), gulaman, tapioca, nata de coco, sweet potato ( kamote), cheese, pounded crushed young rice ( pinipig). In terms of arrangement, most of the ingredients (fruits, beans, and other sweets) are first placed inside the tall glass, followed by the shaved ice. This is then sprinkled with sugar, and topped with either (or a combination of) leche flan, purple yam ( ubeng pula), or ice cream. Evaporated milk is poured into the mixture upon serving.
